ok, I just bought 6 boxes of vegetables from a local farm and I don’t get to pass them out until 24 hours later. How do kept the stuff fresh? Solution: Radiant Barrier Bubble Foil makes a perfect insulator. I added 3 milk jugs that were filled with water and frozen, and placed on an [...] [...]

Energy Efficient Refrigerator

So far the most energy efficient refrigerator I have found is from Sun Frost . The only exception I know of is the insulated cold box that was home-built by owners. I live in Texas, so harnessing the cold weather only works for about 2 months out of the year. Heat on the other hand [...] [...]
