Reduce kitchen energy consumption with the right fridge

Published on: 08/09/2010Reduce kitchen consumption with the right fridge

Eco-conscious homeowners keen to cut back on energy consumption levels within their kitchens have been advised to look at the power used by their fridges and freezers.

With growing numbers of Britons now looking to reduce their energy usage levels so as to reduce their carbon footprints as well as the size of their utilities bills, Which? has published a report highlighting what it has found to be the most energy-efficient kitchen appliances.

According to the consumer comparison service's own research, while the most-efficient fridge on the market right now costs just £17 a year to run, at the other end of the scale, the most expensive will set a household back £94 a year.

As such, it pays to compare running costs as well as upfront price tags while looking for white goods to incorporate into a kitchen design, Which? notes.

Summing up, the organisation's fridges and freezers expert Carole Shepherdson explained: "About a fifth of the power used by all UK domestic appliances is guzzled by a fridges, freezers or fridge freezers."

Earlier in the year, Which? welcomed the launch of the latest range of freezers and fridge freezers from Lec, all of which boast an A+ rating for energy-efficiency.
