Buying a fridge freezer is quite a big investment; they can be a quite costly appliance not only to purchase but to keeping running on a daily basis. Being an essential corner stone of every household it is important to evaluate how much it is going to cost overall and you can do so by monitoring the EU energy rating and comparing it to like for like models.
When you’re looking at purchasing a new fridge freezer then one of the main factors you have to take in to consideration is the energy rating as this in the long run can save you a lot of money. Energy ratings on appliances such as the fridge freezer go from A to G with A being the best and of course G being the lowest.
Now a day most if not all fridge freezers achieve at least an A rating so in order to differentiate between high performance appliances some manufacturers will label their product as A+ or A++ which means that it is 10% more energy efficient than that of an A rated model and even further so there is now A++ labelled products which are 20% more efficient than A models.
On average the estimated costs of running per year for the A++ rated fridge freezers is £25, in comparison to £32 for A+ rated models and £44 for A rated models. The calculations on energy rating take into account that your fridge freezer will be working 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and the average energy cost is based at being 11p per kilowatt per hour, however it can cost less or more depending on how often you use your fridge freezer.
