Keep your refrigerator full – but not overfull.
The more you open the door, the more energy your refrigerator will use, as cooled air spills out each time and the compressor has to work to get back to that same temperature. So if your refer is well stocked with all those great food and drink items your family needs, there is less air space, and less air can spill out each time. Although the compressor has to work to cool all those good things down to start with, they do not spill out and have to be re-cooled the way circulating air does. (Though if you have teenage boys around, they might disappear almost as fast as the air). Just make sure you don’t overfill – if air can’t circulate at all then your foods may not be preserved properly
