Is your fridge eating energy dollars? If your current refrigerator was made before 1993, it uses twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR qualified model. Maybe your kitchen fridge is new – but you might have an older refrigerator in your garage or basement for those extra cases of soda you got on sale. These older units can cost $90 OR MORE a year to operate. Replacing an older model with a new ENERGY STAR qualified one can save you a bundle.
