How much energy does a fridge consume?
Annual energy costs
The energy label indicates the average energy consumption of a fridge in kilowatt hour (kWh). This wattage refers to the average energy consumption of the fridge per year. If you multiply this number by € 0.23, you get the annual energy costs. The energy consumption depends on the energy label of the fridge, among other things. The higher the energy label, the less energy the fridge uses.
Fridge freezer combination: savings C vs F energy label
With an energy-efficient C fridge freezer combination, you save € 281 on energy costs throughout its life span and the CO2 emissions of a 12.500-kilometer car ride. That makes a C fridge freezer combination better for your wallet and for the environment.
Compact fridge: savings D vs F energy label
Thanks to the low energy consumption, you pay less energy costs for a D compact fridge compared to an F compact fridge. This saves you € 77 on energy costs and the CO2 emission of a flight to Lisbon.
Single-door: savings D vs F energy label
With a D single-door fridge, you save € 135 on energy costs compared to an F single-door fridge. You also save the CO2 emission of a car ride from Amsterdam to Ankara and back again. That makes a D model an energy-efficient choice.
