Refrigerator energy label: how to understand it. From consumption associated with the energy class to useful information for reading the energy label of the refrigerator and freezer.
L'energy label of the refrigeratorcan be described analogously to that of a freezer. L'energy labelin fact, it is common to all devices for thedomestic refrigerationthen:
- vertical freezers
- chest freezers (the classic cockpit)
- single freezer
- wine cellar
- fridge with freezer or freezer
THEconsumptionof thefridgestrongly affect the home's electricity bill: this device remains active 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, non-stop, throughout the year.
The most scrupulous people empty the fridge and freezer and turn it off before leaving for the holidays, disconnecting the general meter of the house but this is not enough if thefridgein question is oneenergy ratinghigh consumption.
Refrigerator energy class
The energy label is governed by the Delegated Regulation 2015/1094 of 5 May 2015. Relatively recent legislation if you consider that the dishwasher's energy label has not seen updates since 2010.
There energy class of the refrigerator it must be at least class A +, according to regulation 643/2009 / EC.
For thefridgethere are two types ofenergy label, a 7 modelconsumption classesand a model with 10 energy consumption classes.
If theenergy labelsee 10 classes of consumption refers torefrigeratorscalled "absorption" which differ from the more common "compression" refrigerators.
If the label provides10 energy classes, from A +++ to G, we talk about an absorption device, a cooling technology capable of guaranteeing maximum silence but with higher power consumption.
Who points to asilent refrigeratortherefore, he will have to buy an absorption appliance and can immediately identify it because on the label he will see 10 energy consumption classes and not 7 as the most economical but also noisier compression refrigerators.
Thereenergy class of a refrigeratorabsorption ranges from A +++ to G. Laenergy class of a refrigeratorcompression ranges from A +++ to D.
Although in the energy label all refrigerators see the list of classes ranging from A +++ to G or A +++ to D, by law, any model offridgeon the market MUST necessarily be at least of ENERGY CLASS A +.
How much does a refrigerator consume
AA +++ class refrigeratorit consumes only 149 kWh per year.
Thereenergy class of the refrigeratoris based on the EEI Energy Efficiency Index and refers to:
- Consumption of electricity
- Energy consumption in relation to volume
- Lower temperature in the different compartments
The energy class does not neglect factors such as the type of product, whether built-in or free-standing. In any case it is advisable to provide a certain thickness from the back of the fridge to the wall.
What is the No Frost function for?
For the energy classification of refrigeratorsthe “No Frost” function must also be evaluated. What is the no frost function used for? This is a system capable of eliminating condensation completely automatically. By eliminating condensation, ice formation is avoided and therefore there will be no need todefrostperiodically the fridge. For more information: how to defrost the freezer.
Fridge and freezer energy label
The first thing you read inenergy label of the refrigeratoror offreezerand theenergy ratingwith respective consumption expressed inkilowatt / hour.
Consumption is reported on an annual basis and accompanied by the abbreviation kWh / annum. AA +++ class refrigeratorit consumes only 149 kWh per year.
In theenergy label of the refrigerator or freezerread other technical details such as:
- Capacity in liters of the cold storage compartments, then of the refrigerator.
- Capacity in liters of the storage compartments for freezing, hence the freezer capacity.
- Sound emission expressed in decibels, dB.
