Energy Savings from Cleaning Refrigerator Coils
By Cynthia Kirkeby

For residential refrigerators, keeping the condenser coils clean and free of accumulated dust is seldom done. How much of a percentage in operation energy saving can be achieved by regularly cleaning the coils?

According to Ken Sheinkopf of the American Solar Energy Society:

“To answer your question, I dug out some old files and found a study from five years ago in which the Sacramento Municipal Utility District measured the impact of coil cleaning on 28 refrigerators they monitored. They found that cleaning the coils gave an energy savings of about 150 kilowatts -- a reduction in energy use for the refrigerator of about 6 percent. Their study clearly showed that the dirtier the coils, the more energy that was saved after they were cleaned.”
