Stephen and Rebekah Hren, authors of The Carbon-Free Home, suggest covering your refridgerator with carpet to help cut down on the costs of this energy-hogging appliance. Temporary and perfect for apartments, insulating your refridgerator with carpeting can be tackled in one weekend and with minimal costs. You could even extend the life of your fridge by not making the compressor work so hard. Of course, this is all at the cost of having a refridgerator covered in carpet. Though there are a number of great-looking carpet choices today, would you want to have this in your kitchen, even if it saved you money? For more information on how carpet helps insulate your fridge and how to execute it if you're brave enough, check out this website.
