ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND YOUR NEFF FRIDGE AND FREEZER

Why should you get rid of your refrigerator? It still works okay and it isn’t even that old. That may be true, but even if your refrigerator still works, it isn’t doing your bank account or the environment a lot of good.

By consciously choosing to replace your appliances early on, you can save a lot of money especially when it comes to refrigerators and freezers. A lot of progress has been made over the last 10 to 15 years. For example, if you bought your refrigerator in 1994, you could already benefit by replacing it. And, of course, it will be much more convenient for you in the end! By familiarising yourself with and understanding the new energy label you’ll be able to discover which are the most energy efficient appliances for you to consider.

THE FRIDGE AND FREEZER ENERGY EFFICIENCY LABEL

  1. Supplier’s name or trademark and model identifier
  2. Energy efficiency class
  3. Annual energy consumption in kWh (based on standard test results). The actual energy consumption depends on the use of the appliance
  4. Sum of storage volume of all cooling storage compartments (compartments without a star rating)
  5. Sum of storage volume of all frozen-food storage compartments (compartments with a star rating)
  6. Noise emissions in decibels
  7. Numbering of the regulation

E-Tips

PROPER FOOD STORAGE CAN SAVE ADDITIONAL ENERGY

Store your more sensitive food items in the back of the refrigerator and on the lower shelves where the temperature is coldest. This will allow you to raise the interior temperature slightly and save energy.

Of course, it’s different when the refrigerator has VitaFresh®: in this case you can keep fish, meat, cold cuts and cheese, as well as fruits and vegetables for at least up to three times longer in the VitaFresh® drawers provided.

BEFORE SHOPPING, LOWER THE TEMPERATURE!

Before you go shopping, use the SuperCool function to lower the temperature in your refrigerator. Your food will then get colder faster.

For Neff freezers, the SuperFreeze function is just as convenient. If you activate this before you go shopping, the temperature will be lowered in preparation for fresh food to be added. The function will then automatically revert to the original temperature setting.
