Cleaning Those Pesky Fridge Coils Can Help Save On Your Next Energy Bill
There are things we clean in our homes on a daily or weekly basis. There are other things we clean just a few times a year. And then there are things we clean never because we’re not even aware they exist or need to be cleaned. And we’re about to show you one of those things.
Have you ever cleaned your refrigerator coils before? Or more realistically, do you even know where your refrigerator coils are located? If the answer is no, you’re certainly not alone. According to One Good Thing By Jillee, when the coils under your refrigerator are caked with dust or dirt, they can’t dissipate heat from the refrigerator, which in turn makes it work harder to keep food cool. Your refrigerator uses a ton of energy, and cleaning the coils can improve your fridge’s energy efficiency by 30%.
To clean her fridge’s coils, all Jillee did was pop off the grill located at the bottom of the fridge, then use a small attachment on her vacuum to suck up the dirt and dust. If you try this hack for yourself, you’ll likely be amazed at how much stuff is lurking down there in the coils. Just look at what Jillee vacuumed up from hers!
Trying this hack is a no-brainer. Not only will your fridge be able to function properly and keep your food cooler, but you’ll also save energy and in turn, save money on your next utility bill. What’s not to love about this hack?!
