Based on a study by tech giants using data from the European Commission, if every household in Europe alone raises the temperature of its freezer by one degree Celsius, it could reduce the carbon emissions of more than a million tons of people annually. The company says this is equivalent to the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by 217,000 passenger vehicles throughout the year. This is equivalent to the combined annual energy consumption of 120,000 homes. While this is expected to reassure you to adjust the temperature of your freezer somewhat, it has the recommended minimum setting of -17 degrees Celsius or 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit.
Refrigerator Samsung is promoting, the new Bespoke refrigerator has 14 different color interchangeable panels and a modular design of different ranges.
