Win a £2,000 Foster fridge

Hydrocarbon refrigerants have gained in popularity in recent years because they can reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions by 15%, providing both cost savings to the customer and environmental benefits. Unlike other standard refrigerants, Hydrocarbons offer zero ozone-depletion potential and very low global-warming potential.

Providing a quicker "pull down time", a lower noise level and a lower compressor operating temperature, hydrocarbons are also less "aggressive", contributing to a longer life expectancy for the compressor.

Buy It! has teamed up with Foster Refrigerator, which introduced hydrocarbon technology into its cabinets 10 years ago, to offer readers the chance to win a Gastro Pro G 600 refrigerator worth £2,000.


By how much can hydrocarbon refrigerants reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions?
a) 5%
b) 10%
c) 15%


One lucky reader who can answer the question above correctly will win this amazing prize. All entries must be submitted on a postcard by 15 November.
