Maintenance Monday – refrigeration


Quick Lesson in Refrigeration

You can make your refrigerator more energy efficient by understanding how it works. Refrigerators use energy to reduce the humidity inside, which helps cool foods. Therefore, any time you leave an open container of liquid inside, you’re wasting energy. Make sure all your pitchers have lids, and make sure dressings and moist leftovers are well-covered. You should also always let hot foods cool before placing them in the refrigerator, so it doesn’t have to use extra energy to bring them down to room temperature. Of course, be careful with cooked meats, eggs, and poultry – they shouldn’t stay out for more than an hour.
