Recycle Your Old Refrigerator


June 1, 2011

When you bought your new refrigerator, did you put the old one in your basement or garage to use for overflow items and during parties? You're paying dearly for it if you did. Older refrigerators and freezers use up to twice the energy of new, energy-efficient models, especially if the new one has an ENERGY STAR label. In fact, it could cost you up to $100 a year on your electric bill to run that old energy hog.

Plus, using a refrigerator in a garage is even more inefficient. When it's hot outside, it gets really hot in the garage, which probably is not insulated or air conditioned. So your refrigerator has to work overtime to keep cool inside. The solution: Have your refrigerator hauled away to a place that recycles older models. Buying a small, new unit to handle your overflow will be worth it as it saves money on your electric bill over it's life.
