While refrigerators are necessary appliances, they are the top contributor to electricity bills, after air-conditioners and geysers, generating up to 15% of the total electricity costs.
Nonetheless, there are several practices that can help bring down these expenses, like operating it at medium cool instead of high cool, which can reduce power consumption by 25%. A more efficient way to cut down on operational costs is investing in a Samsung refrigerator with a high BEE rating.
To help you make an informed choice, here is a list of the top 4 and 5-star models from the brand available in India.
