Refrigerator and Freezer Energy Rating Database

 

Kouba-Cavallo Associates' Homepage


Many people haven't a clue how much energy their refrigerator or freezer is using every hour of every day of every year. Here is a little help.

Below you can discover the energy rating of many refrigerators and freezers produced for the American consumer market. To search this database, choose "Refrigerator" or "Freezer" and a brand name from the pull-down list. Then type in a model number, and click on the "Search" button below. The list will give the matching model numbers, its size, the year of manufacture, and the energy rating. Of course not all models can be included. The database generally includes models that are at least 12 cubic feet but not more than 26 cubic feet in size.

Appliance Brand:

 

When typing in the model number of the refrigerator or freezer, use only capital letters. If you are not sure of a letter or number of the model, use an asterick (*) as a wildcard for the character. If the model number begins with a plus sign (+), leave that character off.

 

Model Number:

How can you tell the model number? Check the nameplate. The nameplate usually is inside the food storage compartment or near the floor on the front frame.

 

  Special thanks go out to the Wisconsin Division of Energy and the U.S. Department of Energy's Weatherization program for making this database possible. Their generousity will enable many people to identify cost-effective actions that will reduce energy use and eliminate unnecessary pollution.
