There’s nothing worse than a warm fridge, especially when it’s nearing 90 degrees outside! Unfortunately, it’s notable that when the weather starts to warm up, refrigerators start to break down. Appliances like refrigerators work hard to regulate and maintain their appropriate temperature, and both the rising temperature and increased usage over the summer makes them work harder and sometimes malfunction.
Here are a few preventative tips to keep your refrigerator working at its best:
1. Change your water filter every six months (unless otherwise stated on your new filter’s packaging): This is something most fridge owners forget about! If you don’t change them often enough, they’ll cut down on the cleanliness of your water and may even stop your water flow to your ice maker and water dispenser by doing so the taste of water and ice will be better in taste.
2.Clean your refrigerator’s condenser coils every six months: Is your refrigerator still running, but not getting as cool as it used to? It might be time to clean the condenser coils. The condenser is often located underneath your fridge, but it could also be on the back or top of your unit depending on the model. The area of your fridge often attracts pet hair and dust which can cause reduced energy efficiency, premature refrigerator failure, and poor cooling temperatures. It’s important to note that not all refrigerators have condenser coils in a location that can be cleaned by the consumer. Request a condenser coil cleaning during your next repair service, dryer vent cleaning, or gas fireplace cleaning!
3. Keep your trip to the fridge at a minimum: Refrigerators work hard to maintain their internal temperature and remove moisture that is naturally presented in the air inside of the unit (especially during humid times of the year). A little condensation in your fridge is normal; you’ll find that your glass shelves and food packages may fog up or collect condensation when the doors are frequently opened in the midst of summer humidity. But, it may be a sign of a larger problem with your refrigerator. Before opening the fridge door decide on your snack and get all of your ingredients out all at once.
