If your freezer ends to get a lot of frost build-up on the inside, it can be a pain – not to mention a waste of electricity – to spend the time defrosting it repeatedly. But there are a few things you can do to ensure that your freezer doesn’t get a lot of frost building up.
- Open your freezer for a short duration as possible. If you are grabbing multiple things from the freezer, grab them all at once rather than leaving it open while you grab each item out individually.
- If you were delayed getting items into the freezer, wipe the outside of the packaging first, so you won’t be adding to the condensation into the freezer. So before you put that package of frozen peas or ice cream into the freezer, take the time to take a dry cloth to them and dry them off first.
- Check your freezer’s gasket to make sure cold air isn’t escaping and warm air isn’t entering.
- Every few months, clean your freezer’s gasket to ensure it will seal your freezer properly.
- When you upgrade your freezer, chose a frost-free freezer.
