David Ferrero says his Refrigerator Box, an insulation product that affixes to the back of fridges, cuts energy bills. His box vents heat produced from the back of refrigerators, which he says creates “massive amounts of heat,” particularly in summer months when refrigerators work harder.
The only downside: you have to install a duct system to vent the heat outside.
