It would be good to remember that every time you open the door of a refrigerator or a freezer the energy consumption increases due to thermal dispersion; it is therefore appropriate to avoid opening fridge and freezer too often and too long.
You must then check that the rubber seals of the fridge door are always in good condition.
In fact, the seal prevents leakage of hot air that could translate into a greater stress for the fridge and therefore more energy consumption.
Select the washing option in accordance with the actual level of dirt on the tableware.
In summer, among other things, we always tend to eat lighter and have less fat so you may choose to set a different washing option from the one used in winter, remember to start the dishwasher only when it is fully loaded.
The best time to use the dishwasher is between 5 pm and 10 am the morning after.
For a lower power consumption you should use the low temperature washes, remembering that the 90° cycle with pre-wash is the most inefficient for energy use.
