In this article we’re going to be discussing how much electricity a typical uses.
A common question we get is, are wine coolers expensive to run? And so we’ll be addressing the specific amounts of energy that wine fridges use in this article.
We’re going to be measuring this by the wattage, since this is by definition, energy usage over time.
Since there are many different types and sizes of , we’re going to be splitting this article into different sections, to accommodate for each type/size.
Therefore, without further ado, let’s talk about the typical energy consumption of a :
As we briefly mentioned, we’ve split the content below into sections, so that you can find the precise energy consumption for your particular type of .
Small (6-15 Bottles)
The average wattage consumption of a small is approximately 75 watts.
Medium (18-35 Bottles)
The average wattage consumption of a medium is approximately 125 watts.
Large (36-600+ Bottles)
The average wattage consumption of a large is approximately 200 watts.
A utilises the Peltier effect to cool bottles, and therefore it has no moving parts, and therefore requires less energy than a .
A uses liquid refrigerant which circulates the system, and therefore it requires more energy as the system has physically moving parts.
A has one .
A has two cooling zones, which have seperate controls. Because of this, they require more electricity than a single-zone unit.
