We all do it… You’re sitting there watching TV or busy studying/facebooking at home and then all of the sudden you get that hungry feeling and walk into the kitchen to grab a snack. Your first move is probably to open your pantry/cabinet to see what kind of snacks are inside, but nothing in there satisfies you so you then open the FRIDGE and STAND THERE for a LONG TIME browsing your options. So what’s wrong with this?
Alright, now let’s take a moment to realize what you have just done. By keeping the fridge open for longer than you need it is a waste of energy because the cold air escapes and warm air enter, therefore it takes more energy to make the fridge cold again once closed. So next time you’re hungry, have an idea of what you want to snack on or choose quickly and do not to stand there with the fridge wide open trying to make your decision. This will reduce the amount of energy you consume while also saving you some money on your energy bills.
