Don’t settle. find your perfect match in an ENERGY STAR certified freezer
Using a freezer to keep bulk food purchases fresh is a great way to save money. But if your freezer is old and/or inefficient, you might be handing over the money you saved (and then some) to your utility company in the form of higher energy bills.
When choosing a freezer, try to find the most energy-efficient model that fits your needs. Selecting an ENERGY STAR certified freezer is a great place to start, but also factor size and style into your purchase decision. Larger freezers will consume more energy, and chest freezers are typically more efficient than upright models because less cold air escapes from the top-mounted door. Be sure to check the EnergyGuide label to compare energy costs before you buy.
