Having the refridgerator door open for too long would that be wasting electricity?

My teenage kids go to the fridge and open the door and stand there like they don't know what they want or hoping it is going to jump out at them. I usually try to close the door right away bc I know what I want. I mean it's ok to open the door but not too long of a period. Atleast this is how I think :)

  • ya its a waste. for one they are letting cold air out and it has to get itself cold again after they close it, the longer its open the harder it works to be cold. and the light comes on when its open so if theres no need to have it open and the lights on than that is a waste
