At $100 extra a year in 'wasted electricity', in OREGON, it likely went to keeping the moisture out of the basement. If that refrigerator were replaced with a modern one, using less power and generating less heat, and likely taking less WATER out of the air in the process....

you'd need to buy a dehumidifier for $400 and pay $65 bucks a month to run it!


Huh? Where's the water going from the refrigerator? I've never seen a condensate line running from a refrigerator to a drain.
