While the fridge is one of the greatest inventions ever made, it is a huge energy vacuum. Our suggestion is that we combat the worst and most energy inefficient fridges by subsidising a fridge seal upgrade on all fridges greater than 5 years old.

We can also have the government offer free removal of all fridges over 15 years where staff will come into the house/apartment and remove. This would particularly target 2nd fridges kept in garages etc.
