You Comfort your machine to conserve Energy.

First measure Energy to Manage & Minimize


  • Referring to your existing old conventional 165 liters Fridge, Keep your refrigerator's coils clean. Brushing or vacuuming the coils can improve efficiency by as much as 30 per cent.
  • Refrigerator motor and compressor generate heat. Allow enough space for airflow around refrigerator. If heat gets trapped, if the heat can't escape, the refrigerator's cooling system will work harder and use more energy. You see the fridge in grocery shop fully crowded. How is it in your house?
  • Make sure that refrigerator's rubber door seals are clean and tight. They should hold a slip of paper snugly. If paper slips out easily, replace the door seals. Imagine fridge as a water tank 165 liter size and inside air leaks out is like water dripping thro the drain outlet. This is visible loss happening in fridge.
  • Check your fridge front door today. See to it that it is closing automatically once you leave your hands off. Tilting the fridge with the fridge front bottom screws so that, by gravity the door starts closing back gradually & automatically. And finally the magnetic latches in door only seal the door. The idea is more the time gap between opening & closing of fridge door, it is loss of cool air and hence more power losses.  
  • Give rest to your fridge 1 hour in the morning by switching off. Whole night it has worked and ice upto 6 mm builds up in Freezer. Now this 1 hour rest is power saving, no icing in freezer & fridge is efficient. For manual defrost refrigerator, accumulation of ice reduces cooling power acting as unwanted insulation.

  • Branded gadgets are available in the market and this gadget can be hooked between the power socket and the fridge and they do the Auto Defrosting as per the time settings we set in that.
  • So kindly look into any branded and trusted gadget which can be added to our existing inefficient appliance and make it more efficient. This is economically viable option instead of replacing the existing to the latest appliance. Saving on the existing appliance is more important, if feasible only.
  • Keep your refrigerator or freezer full. An empty fridge cycles on and off more frequently without any mass to hold the cold. If you are low on foodstuff, keep PET bottles in the freezer in fridge.
  • Lowering refrigeration temperature only wastes power. Set it between 3°C and 5°C, and the freezer temperature between –18°C and –15°C. We have two types of thermostat setting for fridge that is summer set and winter set. Depending on the season, change the settings and achieve power savings.
