This month for the Monroe County Energy Challenge our focus is on energy vampire refrigerators! In most homes, refrigerators are the second largest user of electricity, right after air conditioning. This multiplies if you have more than one fridge in your home. On May 22nd, the MCEC is offering free refrigerator pickup and recycling, so now is the time to retire that spare fridge that hardly gets any use! To qualify for free pick-up, the fridge must be running and easily accessible. E-mail MoCoEnergyChallenge@gmail.com to sign up. Take advantage of this great opportunity or pass it along to someone you know who has a nearly empty fridge in their garage just sucking energy!
Don’t have an extra fridge? What’s lurking under your refrigerator? Wads of gunk on your fridge coils decrease the heat transfer efficiency, which increases your electricity bills! Clean your refrigerator coils to help make the heat transfer process more efficient, and to reduce your electricity bills!
Take a photo of the gunk you remove from your fridge coils and we will transform it into your very own dust buddy!
