Getting New Refrigerator
I am sooo excited. My new referigerator is coming on Saturday. Nothing fancy, just your plain old referigerator. The one we currently have is on its last legs, the compressor makes sooo much noise it wakes me up and it is over 30 years old! I made sure we got an energy efficient one that will only be using 38 kwh a month!!!!!! I have no idea what my old one currently uses but I am sure it is a lot more than that!

Congratulations! We got a new refrigerator last fall replacing our 1978 model and it has already paid for itself - I am sure you will see a drop in your electric bill!

Congrats on your new frig.
I just read in Real Simple magazine that older frigs (made before 1993) typically cost $140 a year to operate in terms of electricity.
New frigs (1993 to 2001): only $60

LOL, I always remember my mom cleaning out our fridge twice a week. Mom cooked alot, and any leftovers within a day or two were either eaten or frozen. She said a clean fridge ran more efficiently. I recently received a newsletter from my electric co-op that confirmed that. Mom was right! Also, cleaning under and behind your fridge a few times a month helps too.
