How to Choose the Greenest Refrigerator

If you want to have a green home, with little or no footprint on the environment, then you must invest in passive materials and systems. There are projects nowadays for houses which are almost completely passive, in that they’re isolated in such a way that there is no need for heating in winter and cooling in summer. Moreover, they can have their own solar panels for clean energy production, and a number of other features that consume little or no energy. But what can you do about needing appliances? No matter how green you want to be, you still have to cook your meals, or preserve them, and it seems exaggerated not to make use of available technology in this respect.

Understanding this new sense of responsibility and concern for the environment in their customers, more and more appliance and device manufacturers have come up with water and energy-saving technologies, thus bringing their products one step closer to the present. Today we want to focus on the refrigerator, an appliance very few of us can do without. In today’s world, where everyone works long hours and has little free time, shopping once to make provisions for at least a week or two is normal, which in turn makes it necessary to have a way of storing that food. Luckily, there are options for green refrigerators, and when you look at specifications from new models, you will that most of them have an Energy Star rating. However, an energy star qualification only means that a certain appliance is among the most efficient in its class and not the most efficient appliance overall. If you check out some reviews from bestrefrigerator.reviews, you will see that the energy ratings can make a difference when it comes to buying a new appliance, particularly one as big as a fridge.

In this rating, refrigerators with the A++ are the most efficient, meaning they consume the least energy and water on the market. Products with A+ rating are still quite good, whereas anything below that will not make that much of a difference. The brands that produce some of the best and reliable green refrigerators are Bosch, Gorenje, Liebherr, Samsung and Siemens; truth be told, these brands are top rated when it comes to any type of appliance, so you can rely on quality with them. If you have trouble choosing a refrigerator, go to reviews websites, use them to make comparisons and see which fares best in the Eco department, without putting less accent on other features, which are just as important.

What have we to look for in the future? Scientists are already concerned with taking this to another level, and there are yearly competitions to see who can reinvent certain appliances and devices best. One of the latest winners of such a contest is Russian Yuriy Dimitriev, who came up with the concept of the Zero-Energy Bio Robot Refrigerator, which could innovate the industry; as you can see in the first picture, the Bio Robot Refrigerator looks entirely different from normal ones. Instead of the usual drawers, this one is fitted with a strange gel that you simply insert products in, and which keeps them cool. A great design advantage is that it occupies less space, and it can be mounted vertically, horizontally, and even on the ceiling without the food dropping from it. We’ll just have to wait a bit longer to see whether Dimitriev’s concept is fully functional, but this is a clear sign that things can improve a lot, and even take a turn we wouldn’t have imagined.
