How to Keep Your Cool

How to Keep Your Cool

The kitchen is the cornerstone of the home — it’s where the food is stored and prepared, and everyone loves to eat! There’s nothing more important to a kitchen than a refrigerator. It’s easy to take it for granted, but keeping food fresh for days is of monumental importance. That’s why it’s necessary to make sure it’s working as it should.

Keep Airflow Up

Make sure that overflowing flood isn’t restricting airflow  in your fridge, especially near the vents inside, so air circulates properly and keeps everything cool. A fridge shouldn’t be too full, but it shouldn’t be too empty either — a fridge that is full but not overflowing is easier to keep cool. 

Keep the Seal Tight

The seals on the refrigerator door need to be tight, or else cold air can escape and warm air can get in. Here’s a simple test you can do to see if the seal is tight enough: close a dollar bill between the fridge frame and the door, and if you can pull it out easily, it’s time to change the gasket.
