Products are ranked according to draft energy index. The order of presentation can be changed by clicking on the rows' headings. Compare models by checking them and clicking on compare.
Brand, Model, Other models
Brand with link to website. All other models (different sizes etc.) that are named meet the Topten technical criteria as well.
Costs for electricity during product's life time. Assumptions:
Typical life time: 8 years
Annual energy consumption: Value from product list in kWh/year
Tariff of electricity: 0.2 €/kWh (there however can be large differences depending on country or electrical utility)
Net volume, Gross volume
Net / gross volume in liters.
Storage temperature range in °C.
Annual energy consumption in kWh/year. Accepted measuring protocols see above.
R600a (isobutane, climate-friendly refrigerant)
R290 (propane, climate-friendly refrigerant)
R744 (CO2, climate-friendly refrigerant)
Inefficient models: R134a, R404A or R507 (fluorinated refrigerants with high global warming potential)
Width x depth x height in cm.
This item displays the availability of models in European countries according to producers’ information. "EU" means that the model is available in all or most European countries. If the model is available in a number of countries only they are indicated by country codes according to ISO. "On demand" means that producers could not indicate the availability and that consumers have to ask in their countries on their own.
