Environmental technologies are making remarkable progress. But their effects of decreasing environmental burdens are influenced by the way of using. It is important to approach ecological indicator that induces users to ecological using of devices. The aim of this study is revealing effective contents of display or the methods of indication showed on devices that encourage users ecological using. We chose the refrigerator as a sample. After installing the device that measures how long users open the doors and how much electric fee they cost, we carried out the user survey. The result shows displaying the data amount of change for user’s activity immediately is important and motivate users eco-
logical using. As for displayed contents, “IN PUT display” that visualizes users’ activity is preferable. And user-frien-
dly interface that use numerical number and graphic representation is desired. Also, users’ interests wane off if they don’t know what they should do for energy saving.
