What Temperature Should a Fridge Freezer Be?

01-31 2024

Kitchen appliances, believe it or not, have an expiry date. However, we tend to completely forget that it will keep on serving us till forever. It’s funny, since many of us are the same, we rely on something so much that we often forget to maintain it or manage it how it should be.

Therefore, when you have a freezer or a fridge, it definitely needs to be in the correct temperature to keep your food fresh as a daisy, and you’ll be keeping your fridge/freezer working like the way it came home the first day!

Why is it important to fix a temperature?

Chilling food is necessary, because in the normal temperature if you wish to preserve a food item, it may go stale fairly easily within hours. Thus, fridge & freezers reduce the growth of germs and microbes, maintaining their freshness. 

However, if your fridge isn't chilly enough, meaning if you don’t set it in the right temperature, harmful germs may grow quicker, perhaps causing disease if consumed.

This is why keeping your freezer or fridge’s thermostat at the right temperature will keep your food fresh for a longer time.

What’s the right temperature for a fridge?

The FDA recommends keeping your refrigerator at 4.5°C or below and your freezer at -17°C or lower. The ideal fridge temperature, however, is slightly lower, ideally between 1.6°C and 3.3°C. 

This temperature range keeps food from freezing while also preventing bacterial development, which increases considerably beyond 4.5°C. 

Temperatures above 3.3°C may speed food spoiling, potentially resulting in bacterial concerns such as Salmonella or E. coli, especially if your refrigerator's temperature sensor is inaccurate.

This is why when you’re looking for a refrigerator, look for the one that is equipped with modern technologies and keeps your food fresh for a longer time. If you look at Haier’s 630 Liter Convertible Side By Side Refrigerator, it does more than the ordinary. From expert inverter technology for saving the energy bills to deo fresh technology. It’s simply magical, nothing else!

What’s the right temperature for a freezer?

Generally, keep your freezer at roughly -17°C, however this may need to be adjusted when adding warmer things. Some refrigerators have a flash-freeze feature that lowers temperatures momentarily to prevent freezer burn. 

You may reduce the temperature manually for a few hours, but remember to readjust afterwards. Excessively frigid temperatures can raise electricity bills and dry up food, reducing its flavor. Accumulated ice indicates an excessively chilly freezer temperature.

For instance, Haier's Chest Freezer 200L Model HCF-230 SG can freeze up to -30°C and features a high efficiency compressor, which means the refrigeration pace is quicker and more energy efficient than other freezers on the market. It's long-lasting and gets the job done well.

Should you change the temperature in your fridge?

Once you've set your fridge to the proper temperature, there's typically no need to regularly modify it. Turning your fridge cooler when you load it with goods will not speed up cooling; it will merely make the food colder. 

Well, if you’re thinking on how to optimize the efficiency of your refrigerator to save money on electricity costs!

Look no further than Haier's 439L No Frost Refrigerator Model HRF-460WDBG, which has dual inverter technology. It's just the most incredible refrigerator you'll ever own. Its technique ensures more stable working constitutions in terms of voltage supply, allowing for longer food preservation and a longer lifespan.

Simple to-do’s to keep your fridge working just fine!

a. Allow hot foods to cool a bit before storing them

Placing hot leftovers directly in the fridge or freezer can quickly elevate internal temperatures, posing a bacterial development danger. Allow the meal to cool for a few minutes before covering and storing, but do not allow it to reach room temperature.

b. Check the seals, close the door properly

The gaskets surrounding your refrigerator door keep the temperature inside cool. If there is a leak, cold air may escape, making it more difficult for your refrigerator to chill properly and perhaps raising your power use and cost.

c. Avoid frequently opening the door

Limit the number of times you open the fridge door to keep cold air out and warm air in. When you're hungry, get what you need fast rather than waiting and searching.

d. Avoid overcrowding the space, more than it can take

Maintain a reasonably stocked fridge and freezer while avoiding overcrowding. A full fridge holds cold temperatures better while avoiding airflow obstruction. 

Leaving around 20% of the room open promotes air circulation. Organize your refrigerator to save space. If store-bought ice takes up too much freezer space, consider investing in an ice maker.

If you need to keep a large number of food products, consider purchasing a Haier’s refrigerator or freezer, which can hold a week's worth of food. This works perfectly with a larger family!
