As a general rule you want to (a) gather information about refrigerators, (b) identify the criteria you will use to make your decision (such as cost, capacity, efficiency, safety), and (c) delay making your purchase until you have evaluated several possibilities and are in a position to make a rational (and non-impulsive) decision.
A good starting point is to look at consumer reviews.
In order to ensure you have information necessary to identify energy efficient models you may want to search Google or a comparable search tool for the following searches:
efficiency refrigerators site:.org
efficiency refrigerators site:.gov
These searches should locate information such as the California Energy Commission’s Consumer Energy Commission Refrigerators and Freezers page and the federal government’s Energy Star program page for Refrigerators.
