&gt;     Dunno if anyone&#39;s thought of this, but hacking a chest freezer&#39;s<br>
&gt;     temperature control makes for a very cost efficient fridge.  Every<br>
&gt;     time you open the door on a regular vertical fridge all the cold air<br>
&gt;     basically falls out, because it&#39;s heavier than the hotter air<br>
&gt;     outside the fridge, and then the fridge has to work harder (meaning<br>
&gt;     use more power [ power == dollars]) to replace all the cold air that<br>
&gt;     just went poof.  Chest units don&#39;t have this problem, because, well,<br>
&gt;     they&#39;re horizontal, cold air stays where it is when you open the<br>
&gt;     top.  I saw a hacked unit like this at PS:1 in Chicago.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;     Half assed googling gets me this article:<br>
&gt;      <a href="http://hackaday.com/2009/08/27/energy-efficient-fridge-hack/" target="_blank">http://hackaday.com/2009/08/27/energy-efficient-fridge-hack/</a>  &gt; &quot;In<br>
&gt;     the end, his fridge only used 103 Wh of electricity on the first day<br>
&gt;     to reach and maintain between 4° and 7° C (39° to 45° F), and he<br>
&gt;     noted that 30% of that was just getting it up to temperature. After<br>
&gt;     that, the fridge only turned on for roughly 90 seconds an hour,<br>
&gt;     making it a very quiet fridge as well.&quot;  There&#39;s also a link to a<br>
&gt;     pdf with a somewhat vague (to me who is not overly familiar with<br>
&gt;     appliance circuits) set of instructions on how to screw with the<br>
&gt;     thermostat.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt;     Less power + greater efficiency per dollar == fewer dollars per<br>
&gt;     month to have cold things<br>
