Toshiba Home > Refrigerators > Tips

  Toshiba appreciates the importance of minimising environmental impact. Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Know what you want before you open your refrigerator door. (Standing in front of an open fridge while wondering what you’ll take out makes your appliance work harder to stay cool which in turn creates added greenhouse gas emissions.)
  • Don’t set your fridge temperature at levels colder than it needs to be.
  • Keeping your refrigerator clean and well-maintained can also affect the way it consumes power.
  • Ensure sufficient ventilation around your appliance (see manual for recommended clearance distances).
  • Refrigerators are made to keep food cool. If yours is located near a heat source, such as a stove, or if it is in direct contact with sunlight, your appliance will have to work that much harder and you may find it difficult to achieve the cool temperatures you ideally want.
  • Always ensure your door seals are kept clean as they are an important component to ensure your refrigerator works at it’s most efficient level.
  • If you choose to store food ‘left overs’ in your fridge, always try to place in a storage container or wrap and allow to cool to room temperature before placing in the fridge.
