Fridges & Freezers

fridge285x285When looking for a new fridge make sure you purchase one that is the right size for your needs.


Fridges can be big consumers of energy so you do not want a big fridge that spends its time cooling down empty space or that you have such a small fridge you need a second fridge.


If you have a second fridge, consider how often your 'drinks fridge' is really used. Turn it on only when you need it.


When building a new home consider were the fridge will be placed.


Locate fridges and freezers in cool spots, away from direct sun and other heat sources such as stoves.


Also provide at least 50mm of space at the top, back and sides to improve ventilation and let your fridge work at its best.
