Sundern, September 2016 – Those planning on purchasing a new refrigerator are well-advised to be mindful of the model's energy efficiency class: fridges and freezers are responsible for between ten and 20 per cent of a household's power consumption. Even devices which are already several years old are some of the greatest energy guzzlers. The EU Energy Label provides information on the power consumption of electric appliances, ranging, in the case of refrigerators, from A+++ for particularly efficient to D for highly energy-inefficient. The KS 9869 fridge-freezer from SEVERIN boasts an A+++ energy class rating, equating to an annual saving of around 100 euros in power costs in comparison with a 10 year-old appliance. The stainless steel KS 9869 also features other benefits, including a 4-star freezer and LED interior lighting, which contribute to both energy saving and convenient use.
Fridge-freezers are one of the few household electrical appliances to operate around the clock. To save costs, an energy-efficient model should be used as a result. A device with an A+++ energy class rating consumes approx. 60 per cent less electricity each year than a class A device. Awarded the A+++ energy label, the KS 9869 model from traditional German company SEVERIN is particularly energy-efficient and consumes, on average, 142 kWh/year. The LED interior lighting also contributes to this power saving.
The KS 9869 is also extremely powerful. It runs in climate classes N-T, and thus boasts an ambient temperature operating range of 16 - 43 degrees Celsius. The 4-star freezer enables temperatures of below -18 degrees Celsius, making freezing food and long-term storage of frozen goods no trouble at all. The fridge-freezer's freezing capacity is 4 kg in 24 hours, and it is also equipped with a freezing tray, a fast-freeze drawer and two additional freezer drawers. The refrigerator boasts a net capacity of 191 litres. Three of the four safety glass shelves are height-adjustable. Two crisper compartments keep fruit and vegetables crunchy and fresh, and the space-saving bottle rack also accommodates 1.5 litre bottles. The door additionally features two universal racks and a dairy compartment with cover, ensuring that these products can be stored within an optimum temperature zone.
The KS 9869 fridge-freezer from SEVERIN, featuring a stainless steel housing, is available for a RRP of 779.00 euros.
