Steps to prepare our refrigerator for the summer heat

Steps to prepare our refrigerator for the summer heat

One of the most coveted seasons of the year in Canada is summer, because the arrival of the heat opens the way to new opportunities to undertake the trip of our dreams, it also allows us to taste foods more fresh, to take off our coat, to share outdoor spaces with our children, etc.

However, when that time comes, we must also take certain measures to make our refrigerator ready against the temperature change in order to keep the food in good condition without spending too much energy. You don't know what they are? Do not worry! Our technical service team will be able to enlighten us on the subject.
Let's adjust the temperature of the refrigerator
The first step is to adjust the temperature of our refrigerator to a temperature oscillating between 3 and 7 ºC. In the case of the freezer, let's keep it at -18 ºC. Keep in mind that when we lower the temperature, we spend up to 5% energy.
Do not open and close the door constantly
During this season, it is important to avoid opening and closing the refrigerator door continuously, as the compressor tends to work more when the ambient temperature rises. And although these devices - today - have a 10-year warranty and work efficiently, excessive power consumption could damage them prematurely.
Allow food to cool outside the refrigerator
Once we cook, we let the food sit outside the fridge before putting it in. We will apply the same procedure if we are going to put them in the freezer.
In case we prepare special dishes, the experts of our technical department advise to cover them to place them in the refrigerator, why? Well, food that's not covered tends to produce moisture, which forces this device to work harder to keep food at the right temperature.
Let's put food in the refrigerator
It is important that we place the food inside the refrigerator in such a way as to facilitate the circulation of cold air so that the refrigeration is more efficient and consumes less energy.
We're gonna travel?
If we have to go away from home for more than 15 days, it is better to unplug the refrigerator, this way we can save energy. Also, don't forget to clean it well before leaving and leave your door open to avoid unpleasant odors.
