A freezer often forms a part of the fridge and is either small or rather large. For large families or for those who have the opportunity to buy, for example, a side of beef, or those who cultivate a large amount of vegetables, a large freezer can be a great saving opportunity. It is important for the long-time storage of food to keep the freezer at constant -18°C and in order to save energy it is best to open the lid/door of the freezer for as short a time as possible in order not to lower the temperature inside. Freezers opened from the top rather than the side, lose less coolness when opened because cold air is heavier than warm air and thus stays inside. It is very important for the environment and for the energy payments of the home to buy a freezer which uses as little energy as possible.
The Energy Labels Energy Star, GEEA and The European Energy Label indicate how much energy the freezer needs.
