Refrigerators use 14 percent of a home’s electricity, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. Today’s most efficient 20-cubic-foot refrigerators use 47 percent less electricity than 1993 models. Beware of these resource hogs:
- side-by-side refrigerator/freezers use 10 percent more electricity than freezer-on-top models;
- through-the-door water and ice dispensers and automatic icemakers can increase electricity use by up to 20 percent; and
- automatic defrost models can use up to 40 percent more energy than manual defrost models,
