For $15 a month for the frig, I"m not going to rush out and buy one that only uses $12/month.......
In the winter, it keeps that part of the kitchen warm. A few degrees warmer.
I put my Kill-o-watt meter on it and let it run for a week. It's not killing the budget, believe me.
Of course, when I bought it, I bought a decent one that would last a while. Going on 21 years this month. Who knows? I may never need to buy a new one.
Of course, the dishwasher died about six months ago. Now I wash the dishes by hand. I'm waiting till I"m home for one of the super sales over the holidays. I'm usually gone. Maybe xmas this year ...or new Years.
