Should I replace my refrigerator?

Question: Should I replace my refrigerator?

Refrigerators have become increasingly efficient in recent years, but at what point does it make sense to trade in your old refrigerator for a new energy-efficient model?

Answer:

Energy Star recommends replacing your refrigerator if it was manufactured before 1993. A new fridge should cost you half as much to operate.
