In hot weather, it is not uncommon to see refrigerators break down. Very busy, this household appliance is serviced all year round to avoid premature breakage which would require you to change your appliance. So to help your fridge live longer, here are 5 secrets of longevity.
Tip # 1: check the climate class
First of all, for a refrigerator to work well and not let go on the go, you must choose it! For this, you must for example take into account the climate class of your future device. Indeed, this indicator allows you to know for what ambient temperature the device was designed for proper operation. A class N refrigerator corresponds to a temperate temperature between 16 ° C and 32 ° C, ST to a subtropicalized temperature ranging from 18 ° C to 38 ° C. So, depending on the region you live in, adapt this category so that the operating temperatures correspond best to reality.
Tip # 2: Let your refrigerator breathe
For your refrigerator to function properly, it must be well ventilated so that heat can escape from your appliance. To do this, you must leave a space between the refrigerator and the wall (about 5 cm) so that air can circulate freely. In addition, we think of cleaning the rear grille two to three times a year for better evacuation. This will avoid overconsumption of energy which can tire your equipment.
Tip # 3: Do not place it near a heat source
Likewise, the place of the refrigerator will play an important role in its proper functioning. To optimize it, it is recommended not to place your refrigerator near a heat source and therefore to keep it away from hotplates or the oven which would cause an overconsumption of energy and therefore an overactivity of the appliance which could damage it.
Tip # 4: don't charge it too much
Also to avoid overactivity of the device, do not overload your refrigerator. To do this, avoid putting unnecessary things in your refrigerator that it would still cool. For example, consider removing all cardboard packaging from food before placing it in your refrigerator like those found around yogurts. Your fridge will then work for what is really useful.
Tip # 5: maintain your refrigerator
Finally, know that a refrigerator must be maintained! It is indeed important to defrost it when a layer of ice appears because it increases its consumption and can damage the proper functioning of the device. Do not wait too long before proceeding with this operation because the glass can quickly prevent the doors from closing properly and cause leaks. In addition, always remember to unplug your refrigerator before embarking on its maintenance because the door should not remain open for a long time when your appliance is on.
