Is my food safe if I connect my fridge/freezer to equiwatt?

Yes, your food is safe.

Guidelines from UK Power Networks state that food is safe in your fridge for 4-6 hours with the door closed and a full freezer can last up to 24 hours when they have been turned off if the door isn't opened.

As equivents only last 1 hour, there is no reason that anything should happen to your food whilst your fridge/freezer is switched off.

We also send notifications at the beginning and end of every equivent to make sure that you are always aware when your appliance has been switched off.
