About this fridge energy efficiency calculator:

The problem:

Your kitchen appliances are likely to be wasting much more unnecessary energy than you realise. Therefore, it is key for you to understand how much extra energy your fridges and freezers use by being colder than they should. In fact, research suggests that on average, fridges and freezers are about 2.2ºC too cold. Did you know that for every 1°C colder that your appliance temperature is, it increases your energy consumption by 5-10%? That’s a lot of excess energy and unwanted energy costs, right?

How to use this fridge energy efficiency calculator:

Fill in the total annual kWh consumption of your fridges and freezers. You can find this on the energy performance certificate of your appliances. Alternatively, you can use our chosen averages:

  • A single door upright fridge consumes about 632 kWh per annum
  • A 400L chest freezer consumes about 1,168 kWh per annum

This tool will automatically calculate the extra cost on your energy bill that is generated by fridges and freezers being too cold.
