Reducing energy use of domestic refrigerators.

Author(s) : SLUIS S. M. van der


In the work carried out for the European Community, attention was given to the technical (and economical) possibilities for energy saving. In an engineering analysis, a dynamic simulation model was used to study the savings reached by conventional improvements like thickening insulation and increasing evaporator/condenser sizes. It was shown that 40-50% could be saved, at minimum life cycle costs to the user.
