If you do this action, you could earn another 2 points [add to points]

Keep the refrigerator temperature about 36-38 degrees, and the freezer around 0 degrees. This will reduce electricity by not running the chillers as long, but still keeps it cold enough to protect the food. Vacuum the rear-mounted condenser coils regularly, to make sure they perform efficiently, especially if you have pets.

You might have to buy a thermometer in order to measure the actual temperature, since the settings are usually set as numbers, like 1-5. Older models may not be able to reach those temperatures, and may require replacement.
