Precautions while using Refrigerators

Refrigeration technology

Before the invention of the refrigerator,icehouseswere used to provide cool storage for most of the year. Placed near freshwater lakes or packed with snow and ice during the winter, they were once very common. Natural means are still used to cool foods today. On mountainsides, runoff from melting snow is a convenient way to cool drinks, and during the winter one can keep milk fresh much longer just by keeping it outdoors. The word refrigeratory was used as early at least as the 17th century
