Energy Saving ideas
, The freezer should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat
producing applianres or heating durts, and out of direct sunlight,
° Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in freezer, Overloading
freezer forces rompressor to run longer, Foods that freeze too slowly, may,lose
quality, or spoil,
• Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe rontainers dry before placing them in
freezer, This cuts down on frost build-up inside freezer,
° Freezer shelves should not be lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or paper
toweling, Liners interfere with cold air circulation, making freezer less efficient,
• Organize and label food to redure door openings and extended searches, Remove
as many, items needed at one time, and Hose door as soon as possible,
