Pack your freezer
full to maximise efficiency.
Maintain freezer efficiency by filling it to capacity.
Opening your freezer door causes cold air to escape and warm air to flow in. The process of cooling down the incoming air consumes most of the energy used. However, if your freezer is full, there will be less space for warmer air to enter, resulting in less energy consumption.
Although you may not always have a freezer full of food, there are simple ways you can fill your freezer to its capacity. Filling Ziploc bags with water is a way to fill up your freezer while having ice packs on hand. Reusing old milk jugs and filling them with water will also help fill any gaps in the freezer while helping keep food frozen in the event of a power outage.
Filling your freezer 2/3 full will ensure maximum efficiency without overcrowding your freezer.
