Green in the Kitchen: Check the Seal

If you’ve been following our other posts, you know that your refrigerator is the biggest energy user in your kitchen. And worse, if the seal isn’t airtight, your refrigerator could be running inefficiently, and wasting even more energy.

You can test this with a small piece of paper or dollar bill. Close the door with the paper half-in and half-out of the fridge. If you can easily pull it out, it’s time to replace the seal! Call your local appliance center or repair shop.

This is a quick and easy way to make sure your refrigerator is running efficiently. Save money, and energy, by checking the seal on your fridge!  Share your results with us in comments below.
