Manage laboratory freezer temperature settings and replacing or eliminate older freezers

A typical ultra-low temperature freezer can use as much electricity as a small house! Managing temperature settings and replacing or eliminating older freezers can save thousands of dollars each year. For example, a recent technical bulletin published by the Labs21 program showed that the use of room temperature sample storage can save $1,320–$3,250 annually for each ultra-low freezer that is replaced.
