An easy way to save money around your house is by saving energy. Everyone knows to turn off lights when they leave a room, but one of the home maintenance tips that many people don’t think about is taking care of the refrigerator.
Testing the Seal
Your refrigerator could be working overtime if the seal isn’t holding in the cold air properly. If you close a slip of paper in the door and it comes out easily while the door is closed, the seal needs to be replaced.
Replacing the Seal
Replacing the seal is pretty easy. Pull back the existing seal, loosen the screws that hold the retainer in place and then slip the old seal out. You can put the new one in its place.
Having a strong seal on your refrigerator can save energy. Lower your utility bill with this quick repair.
