Would you call a home, a home, without a fridge? The fridge serves a vital function of storing our scrumptious edibles, but the fact that it requires constant energy to run should wake you to the idea that it is much wiser to get one with energy-saving features.  

Bear in mind, when you buy a fridge, make sure to check the Energy Label attached on it as it will rate how energy efficient it is.  

On top of that, as a rule of thumb, smaller fridges consume less electricity than big fridges. Be careful not to overload the fridge too, as it affects the circulation of cold air. Help yourself and buy only what you need and replenish when necessary.
