Save energy and money when you cool your food efficiently.

In most households, the refrigerator consumes more energy than any other kitchen appliance. When you buy an ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator you'll use up to 20 percent less energy than with a conventional model, significantly cutting your electricity costs without sacrificing performance or features. In fact, more precise temperature controls keep your food fresher for longer, and the increasing amount of feature-rich models offer multiple choices to meet your specific needs. When it's time to replace your old refrigerator, consider purchasing an energy-efficient ENERGY STAR model.
