You can plug your refrigerator into the Currant Smart Outlet. In fact, tracking the energy consumption of your refrigerator (and other large appliances) with a Currant Smart Outlet is an excellent way to detect if the performance and efficiency of this appliance is deteriorating over time. Refrigerators should be serviced regularly (e.g., vacuuming the coils under or behind your fridge). If they are not serviced, they can become increasingly less efficient over time and consume more electricity in the long run.

However, we do NOT recommend setting any power-saving rules for your refrigerator or other important appliances without carefully considering the safety and health risks of cutting off power to these appliances for any period of time.
