Don’t frequently open the door of refrigerator. Before open the door you should decide what the things you have to take out are. Then open the door and take all the things at the same time. Reason is when open the door all most all the cooled air will be fell out from refrigerator. Then it’ll fill up with fresh air in room temperature. When this happening repeatedly lots of energy will be lost.

Keep foods in pre designated places. It’ll help find things very easily and it’ll reduce duration of keep the door open.
Set the temperature of refrigerator to 40 F and freezer to 0 F or lower.

A = Area of the Room (from square footage)
B = Required no of BTU
(A x 10)+4000 = B

Choose a model coming with energy star rate. Efficiency of this kind of model is 10 percent more than regular models.

It’s better idea to buy an air conditioning machine coming with a recirculation option. Due to this option cooled air will be recirculation around the home. Important thing is air condition machine should be properly installed and all the area should be sealed ensuring that cool air will not leaking to outside.
