I think that's why mine came down to the same usage as a bigger but higher rated unit on the extra information available at the shop (which was more numbers that I can't remember what they denote)
I was just converting the figures in a previous post into actual money cost per year to run. I will have to look in the shops for more info tomorrow or Fridsy as Mrs Big Al is off for a week and we need to look at fridges and freezers.
Will report back soon.
Been into town today with the snow falling to 5" at least and saw some fridge freezers classed as A rated but with large costs.

Has a rating of A and a cost of 325 kwh per year so i don't know how they work it out. Thisff would cost on my eleccy plan £48 to run for a year on average etc.
Still this is better than the current undercounter ones that cost me 3.7 units a day to run or £202.58 per year. As my current leccy bill is only £450 ish a year buying this FF would bring my annual bill down to around £290 so I could buy this knowing it would pay for itself in a year.
Quick calcls look as it the figures are per cubic ft. The example above is 9.2 cubic ft and so it works out ar 35kwh per ft which is about £48 per year.
Edited for more info.
