A fridge’s health shouldn’t be simply determined by how cold and fresh it keeps food - it’s also about how well it holds in the temperature.

If your fridge doesn’t seal properly, your power bills are going to rise and your food inside will spoil faster than they should.


An easy way to check your seals is by taking a $5 note, place it in between the seal and the door, and close. If the note pulls out too easily, you may have to change your door seals or the fridge’s hinge.


Replacing the seals on the fridge is easy. To find out what seal is most appropriate for your fridge, visit liveability.com.au


For a healthy and efficient fridge, don’t forget to check the temperature settings. You should be aiming for 3-4 degrees for fridges, and between -15 and -18 for freezers.
