How To Save Electricity By Defrosting Your Freezer

When was the last time you cleared your freezer? If you’re like most people, it’s probably been a while. This is one of those tasks that sometimes will be left undone for a long while, either out of laziness, distraction, or simply because it doesn’t feel like a priority. Well, it should!
There are some key benefits to keeping a freezer defrosted, not all of which are immediately obvious: sure, you’ll reclaim space that you can actually use to store food. But you’ll also avoid the chance that your freezer might thaw accidentally (say from a power loss), potentially flooding your kitchen and causing all kinds of trouble. Additionally, you’ll also save electricity, since a freezer full of frost will force the refrigerator to use more electricity than normal to maintain a constant temperature.
