Your refrigerator accounts for at least 11% of your household’s total energy use. Older refrigerators and freezers use inefficient technology, causing them to use up to $100 more annually than newer models! Your secondary “garage” or “basement” fridge or freezer is probably just collecting dust, and it’s definitely wasting energy.
Until the end of September, you can recycle your old fridge or freezer and get a $100 rebate through @MassSave and select utilities. That’s a great deal for you and the planet!

Thanks to improvements in compressors and insulations, today’s refrigerators consume much less energy than models made before the year 2000. A new ENERGY STAR-certified model can use just half the electricity that your older model is using now. Don’t let rundown appliances run up your energy bill!
