-70° Is the New -80°
Ultra low temperature freezers are now set to -80°C by default, but there is little evidence to suggest that this is a better temperature than -70°C, where they were previously set.
Changing your freezer’s temperature to -70°C rather than -80°C can save 30% of a freezer’s energy consumption every day! Hear more in this video from My Green Lab about why setting your freezer to -70°C will have a lower environmental impact.
