What’s the Ideal Temperature for a Refrigerator?

The refrigerator is an integral part of the modern kitchen. Its design and manufacturer can be of any kind, because in this case the content is much more important than the form. It is the refrigerator that you trust the safety of your food and ready meals, the most popular drinks and desserts, fruits and vegetables. Therefore, maintaining the correct temperature inside the chamber is very important, you can not only prolong the preservation of food, but also reduce energy costs, if you know what temperature to set in the refrigerator.

Setting the temperature in your refrigerator
Almost every modern refrigerator model has a temperature controller. It is designed so that you can set the temperature that best suits your food. Please note, the recommended temperature in the refrigerator is at or below 40°F.

The right temperature in the refrigerator not only allows food to stay fresh longer, but also reduces energy consumption. This way, you are storing food and consuming a small amount of energy. Note that more expensive models may have controllers for multiple levels of cooling space, while regular units have only one controller for temperature control. But even a single controller can create different temperatures on the shelves because the warm air rises to the top, and then the top shelf will still be slightly warmer than the bottom shelf.

Operating temperature in the refrigerator
When buying a new refrigerator, try not to overload the food in the first few days. Depending on the manufacturer and model, the ideal temperature may differ, but it is wise to initially set it at 41°F and see what happens to the products. If they spoil quickly, lower the temperature by a few degrees. If frost appears on the contents of the refrigerator, on the contrary, you need to add some heat.

For proper refrigerator operation, do not open the door too long or often and make sure it is closed tightly. The least amount of outside heat that enters the refrigerated volume will increase the life of the equipment and provide the desired temperature. Also, do not put hot food in the refrigerator, wait for freshly cooked food to cool on the stove, or put it in a bowl of cold water if you want to speed up cooling.

Refrigerator freezer compartment temperature
Regardless of whether you separate the storage compartment for frozen foods or the small freezer compartment located inside the door of the refrigerator for delicate foods. Please note that the usable temperature should be at or below 0°F,

The optimum temperature in the refrigerating compartment guarantees long-term storage, energy saving and comfortable use of the appliance.
