Energy Saving mdeas
o The freezer should be located in the coolest area of the room, away from heat
producing appliances or heating ducts, and out of direct sunlight,
• Let hot foods cool to room temperature before placing in freezer, Overloading
freezer forces compressor to run longer, Foods that freeze too slowly may lose
quality, or spoil,
o Be sure to wrap foods properly, and wipe containers dry before placing them in
freezer, This cuts down on frost build-up inside freezer,
o 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 reduce door openings and extended searches, Remove
as many items needed at one time, and close door as soon as possible,
