What does the Holiday Button on my fridge freezer do?

Ever wondered what the holiday button on your fridge freezer does? This helpful guide will explain how the clever setting works and how it can help to reduce your energy usage

Give your fridge freezer a break

When you’re about to jet off on your holidays, why not give your fridge freezer a little vacation as well? When activated, the holiday button will stop cooling your fridge and will use a minimal amount of power in the freezer. It’s a really handy way of reducing energy consumption and keeping those household bills low while you’re not at home.

Things you need to know

Before you put your fridge freezer in holiday mode, there are a few things you need to consider:

  • Make sure there’s no food in the fridge or the freezer as it won’t be kept cool
  • To keep energy usage really low, make sure the doors are completely shut
  • Only use the holiday setting if you’re going to be away for more than a few days
  • When you’re back from your jollies, turn the holiday function off again, let the appliance run for at least an hour before you add fresh food
