Your freezer is one of the most important appliances you have in your home. However, chances are that it likely isn’t as efficient as it should be. At A-Tech Appliance, we want to make sure it is as dependable as possible. So, take advantage of our top five tips to make your freezer more efficient.

Vacuum the Condenser Coil

It’s amazing how much dust and gunk the back end of your fridge and freezer collects over the course of a year. Vacuum this area, and it will vastly improve your appliance’s performance.

Clean Out Your Freezer

Take out all the food you have in the freezer, and put it into a cooler. Now, clean out the freezer. This will improve the efficiency of the freezer, and it will help remove any undesirable smells that might be permeating from the appliance.

Check and Replace the Door Seal

Check the seal for wear and tear. If it does not completely stick around the edges of the door, then your freezer is working overtime to keep everything cold. One of our top appliance maintenance tips is to replace the door seal if it is not tight.

Defrost the Freezer

If you have frost in the freezer, you need to defrost it. Clear out the freezer, and chip away the frost buildup. You may need to unplug it and let it thaw.

Check the Thermostat

Check the thermostat to make sure that it remains constant.

By following these top five tips for making your freezer more efficient, you’ll save money and extend the life of the appliance.
