When the sun is shining bright into your kitchen, take a look where it shines. Is it on your refrigerator? When the sun’s rays come through the window, they generate heat. And when the sun is shining bright on your refrigerator, it can heat it up. When your refrigerator is warming up, it’ll counter the effect by using more energy to keep things cool (or frozen) inside. Over time, this wastes energy and increases your utility bill. Draw shades to block the sun’s rays and help keep your fridge running with as little electricity as possible.
