Energy Star this. Energy Star that. There’s no doubt that modern appliances are made “more eco friendly” than older ones. Supposedly you save on your electric bill. New refrigerant is used–not the harmful stuff that hurts the ozone when released. They sure cost a lot. They sure are pretty. Everyone has heard of going greener, but when should you decide the best for your old appliance ?
One company in Los Angeles, Active Appliance may have some input. “We fix broken appliances so there is less disposed appliances in the landfills.. We implement energy saving methods at houses we service.”
Something to think about…scrap metal, or can you use it for a few more years?
