  1. I’m sure our fridge/freezer is an energy hog but when we talk about replacing it the environmental cost of manufacturing a new one stops us. Better would be a way to upgrade or replace the motor, compressor, etc. It’s a shame to trash an expensive, high quality product that is still functioning perfectly. I know, this is a hard sell but isn’t everything?

    Keep up the good work, nothing is more important.
