How an Energy Star Refrigerator Can Help You Maximize Your Savings

Money in the pocket

If your refrigerator is more than 10 years old, consider replacing it with a new, energy-efficient model. Thanks to recent improvements in insulation and compressor technology, today’s refrigerators use significantly less energy than older models. But how do you know which models will maximize your energy savings? Look for the Energy Star label, of course! Here’s a look at how Energy Star certified refrigerators will help you cut your energy bills.

Lower Energy Consumption

Energy Star certified refrigerators use about 20 percent less energy than non-certified models, and significantly less than refrigerators that are over 10 years old. Compared to new standard models, Energy Star certified refrigerators will cut your energy bills by more than $125 over its life. By replacing your old fridge with a new Energy Star certified model, you can expect to save up to $1,100 on energy costs over its lifetime.

Better Seal

To cut energy consumption, Energy Star certified refrigerators need to do a better job at staying cold than standard models. Improved insulation and tighter seals help keep the inside of an Energy Star refrigerator colder, longer. Not only will this help cut down on your energy bills, but it can also keep your food fresher. In other words, an Energy Star refrigerator may also help cut down on your grocery costs each year.

Tax Credits and Rebates

There are tax credits and rebates established to encourage the purchase of Energy Star certified appliances. Here in Concord, for example, Pacific Gas and Electric is offering a $50 rebate for anyone who recycles their old refrigerators and freezers. It’s not much, but it might just give you the motivation to finally replace your old refrigerator.

Summer Grilling Safety Tips

Grilling at summer weekend

Most of the country is finally starting to shake the last bit of snow from their boots, which means summer is nearly here. And that means one of the great American pastimes is about to emerge from hibernation: cookouts. It usually doesn’t matter what you’re cooking, as long as you’re grilling you’re bound to have a great time with family and friends. Hurry in to your local home appliance store to get a quality grill for all of your summer cookouts. To make sure the party continues all summer long, here are some important grilling safety tips.

Take a Walk

Whenever you grill outside , the grill should be placed well away from the home, deck railings, and out from under eaves and overhanging branches. If you can step outside your backdoor and instantly flip a burger, your grill is too close to your home. 

Stay Close

When the grill gets going, you won’t be going anywhere. Bring everything you need with you outside so you don’t need to go into the kitchen and leave the grill unattended. It’s especially important to keep a close eye on the grill if you have pets or small children running around.

Turn it Off

If you are using a propane grill, make sure to turn the propane tank off as soon as you take the food off the grill. If you wait to turn the gas off, you may forget about it. This can create a potentially dangerous situation for you and your family.

Keep it Clean

Remove grease or fat buildup from the grills and in the trays below the grills to prevent flare-ups. Giant, leaping flames may look cool, but they can be dangerous if you are leaning over the grill or wearing loose fitting clothing.

If you live in the Walnut Creek area, come to Friedman’s Appliance this summer to stock up on everything you need for outdoor cooking and grilling. In addition to our everyday selection of incredible home appliances , we carry seasonal items like barbecue grills. For additional information about our appliance store, call us at (925) 265-8402.
