[About 90% answered that they were “worried” about the electricity bill this summer] Introducing how to save electricity for
refrigerators that are energized 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. -Energy saving campaign is underway with Panasonic refrigerators. 3000 yen worth of gifts without exception ~
This summer has been hot in various places, and the government’s request to save electricity and the increase in electricity prices have become a hot topic. Uka
Panasonic Corporation recently conducted a questionnaire survey on household awareness of electricity bills and ways to save
We will also introduce the energy-saving features of refrigerators, which are home appliances that remain powered on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and account for about 20% of household power consumption. * Our Internet survey Survey period: September 22, 2022 to September 29, 2022 n = 1,295
About 90% answered that they were concerned about their electricity bills compared to last year.
In response to the increase in electricity bills, when asked if they were more concerned about electricity bills this summer than last year, about 90% answered “Yes” or “Slightly yes”. became.
Also, when I asked why I was worried about the electricity bill, “I was surprised when I saw the bill because the electricity bill was so much higher than last year.”
“The amount billed was higher than last year, even though I was using it in the same way as usual.”
“Because I used it without being aware of the electricity bill, the bill for electricity became scary.”
Many people realized that their electricity bills had risen after checking their billing statements.
Among them, there were answers such as “It’s about 5,000 yen higher than last year” and “My electricity bill in August was less than 10,000 yen last year, but this year it was more than 10,000 yen.” You can see that it is putting pressure on the household budget. [Image 2
The top 3 home appliances that are concerned about electricity bills are “air conditioners”, “refrigerators” and “cooking appliances”. When you are conscious of saving electricity, the first thing that comes to your mind is home appliances that are essential to your daily life.
When asked about “household appliances that are concerned about electricity bills”, the first place is “air conditioners”, and about 90% of respondents answered that they are concerned about electricity bills. The second place was “refrigerator” at about 40%, and the third place was “cooking equipment” at about 30%.
*Cooking equipment such as microwave ovens, rice cookers, jar pots, etc. Air conditioners, refrigerators, and lighting account for more than 50% of daily power consumption in households.
What is the actual power consumption ratio?
According to a survey by the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy, air conditioners, refrigerators, and lighting account for more than 50% of the daily power consumption of home appliances. It seems to be the point of energy saving to save power consumption of home appliances with a large power consumption ratio.

In a questionnaire survey, refrigerators ranked second among home appliances that caused electricity bills to be a concern. In fact, refrigerators have the second highest daily power consumption ratio among electrical appliances in the home, and it can be said that energy-saving home appliances should be devised.
In the questionnaire survey, we asked those who answered that they were concerned about the electricity cost of their refrigerators about what they had done to reduce their electricity bills.
“I bought a new refrigerator that was outdated.”
“I opened and closed the refrigerator door less.”
“The amount to put in the freezer is large.
I found that they are trying various ways to save electricity. On the other hand, since refrigerators are powered on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, some people may think that there is no room for power saving. However, you can save electricity by buying a new refrigerator or by making some small adjustments to how you use it.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when using your refrigerator to save energy. ■□■Points to be aware of in energy saving of refrigerator■□■ 1) Check the age of the refrigerator.
To be conscious of the energy saving of the refrigerator, let’s first recall the years of use of the refrigerator. If you have been using it for 5 to 10 years or more, it is important to consider replacing it with the latest model because not only is it more energy efficient, but it also has a power saving mode. You can check how much
electricity you can save by replacing your refrigerator with the energy-saving product replacement navigation system “Shinkyu-san.” Enter the information of your refrigerator and check it out. ▼ Energy-saving product replacement navigation “Shinkyu-san” [Image 5

You can also save electricity by devising how to use refrigerators that are always turned on. Please take the following items into consideration.
Do not put anything on the refrigerator
(Because it becomes difficult for heat to dissipate when objects are placed on it, and power consumption increases.)
● Secure heat dissipation space around
(If there is no space, it will be difficult to dissipate heat and power consumption will increase.)
Do not block the cold air outlet or air inlet
(If cold air does not pass through easily, it will be difficult for the inside of the refrigerator to cool down, and more electricity will be used to lower the temperature.)
Allow hot food to cool before adding
(This is because hot food raises the temperature inside the
refrigerator and requires extra cooling operation.)
Do not pack too much food
(Because the flow of cold air becomes poor and the power consumption increases if it is overstuffed.)
* It saves energy when the freezer compartment is tightly packed. Keep door openings and closings short
(Because the temperature inside the refrigerator rises due to the outside air when the door is opened and closed.)
