1. Space around refrigerator
A refrigerator releases heat which needs to escape. So there should be a gap of at least 6 inches from the walls for maximising its efficiency. More the space, the better it is.
2. Avoid opening your fridge frequently
Every time you open your refrigerator some extra heat from the outside seeps in and then the refrigerator has to consume more electricity to cool the contents inside it. So opening refrigerator frequently is not a good idea.
3. Avoid over-stuffing and clean it regularly
Every article kept inside the refrigerator needs cooling. There should be sufficient space inside so that the cool air can move around without much hinderance. So keep only those things which really need to be cooled.
4. Avoid keeping hot things inside
Don't put hot articles inside the refrigerator. First let them cool down to room temperature and then put it inside as more heat in the refrigerator means more cooling which in turn consumes more electricity.
5. Thermostat temperature at medium cool
Make sure that the temperature control knob of the refrigerator is set to “medium” level.
