  • ENERGY STAR Certified

    With an ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator you can maximize your energy and dollar savings without sacrificing the features you want.

What else should I look for when buying a refrigerator?

Purchase an appropriately sized refrigerator. Generally, the larger the refrigerator, the greater the energy consumption. The most energy-efficient models are typically 16-20 cubic feet.
Consider buying a refrigerator with fewer doors. Fewer doors reduce the air leakage. To maximize your savings, minimize the number of doors and pay attention to cool air you can feel when you shut the doors. Make sure the seals around the doors are airtight. If they are not, replace them.
Consider what type of refrigerant different models use. Some refrigerants are better than others when it comes to Global Warming Potential (i.e., the degree to which they contribute to global warming when released into the air). R-600a and R-441a are low GWP refrigerants. While information on refrigerant type is somewhat limited for older models, many new models provide the refrigerant type. Available information on ENERGY STAR certified consumer refrigeration product models is compiled here.
Consider recycling your old second refrigerator. Refrigerators over 15 years old could be costing you more than $80 per year to run. If you need a second refrigerator year-round, replace the old one with a new ENERGY STAR certified. Make sure you keep your fridge in an ambient temperature of 35 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit. On average, an old refrigerator uses about 35% more energy than a model that has earned the ENERGY STAR.
Recycle your old refrigerator.

Recycle your old refrigerator. If you buy a new refrigerator, be sure to recycle your old one. Many appliance retailers will pick up and recycle your old refrigerator when you purchase a new one.

Follow these guidelines to reduce the amount of energy your refrigerator uses.
