Our easy-to-use Refrigerator Kit reduces electricity usage 3 ways. A temperature gauge ensures that an optimal 36-38 degree environment is maintained. An open door wastes valuable electricity, so our door alarm emits an audible beep when the door is ajar for more than 1 minute. Dirty refrigerator coils impair efficiency and raise electricity costs. Cleaning your coils is simple with our cleaning brush and instruction guide.
The Refrigerator Kit can save you up to $35 per year. Properly cleaning your coils once a year will save you $15 on an annual operating cost of $132. The monitor’s alarm will notify you when your refrigerator door is open too long. Avoiding poor opening/closing habits can save you up to 120 kWh per year, or just over $14. Lastly, the monitor will help you set the correct temperature in your refrigerator between 37˚ and 40˚ and save you approximately $6 per year, assuming the temperature is set 2˚ too low and each degree set below the recommended range raises operating costs by 2.5%. At an electricity cost of 11.7 cents per kWh, the combined savings is $35 per year.
