Comparison of various brands of Refrigerators on BEE star rating in India

By on April 24, 2016
Hindi Translation: भारत में बीईई स्टार रेटिंग अनुसार रेफ्रिजरेटर के विभिन्न ब्रांडों की तुलना

Most major sporting events like Olympics rate performance of a country based on the medals they get. We at Bijli Bachao thought, why not have a similar ranking of various brands on BEE Star Ratings. To do so we have gathered data for various brands and their models with their star ratings and have ranked various brands based on the same. It is our hope that this will induce some healthy competition amongst the brands and that will help improve the overall energy efficiency in the refrigerators.

To achieve at this ranking, we collected the data from the BEE website www.beeindia.in. The data was collected for both Direct Cool and Frost Free refrigerators. Please note that Direct Cool refrigerators are the ones with single door for both freezer and refrigerator. Frost Free refrigerators have different sections for freezer and refrigerator. The list of various refrigerators and their star ratings is available at the link in the end of this article.

Please note that this ranking is just based on the number of models by a brand in a star rating. This does not represent comparison of models. Individual model of a particular brand may be better than the best brand on this list, but that information is not available in this. We do plan to provide that information in our future evaluations. We also plan to keep updating this data every month so that we provide the latest statistics. So keep reading Bijli Bachao.

  • gaurav gill

    hello

    I am lookimg forward to buy a Whirlpool multidoor FD343 model rerigeator.

    Can you please how is he electrical consumption of it.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Gaurav,

      Data is not available for multi door refrigerators as they are not rated by BEE, so cannot comment.

  • Ashraf

    I am looking for a bottom freezer refrigerator. Zeroed on Haier 345 L. Can you advice alternate options or should I choose a conventional one. Either ways, I am lloking out for a maintanance free fridge.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Ashraf,

      Bottom freezer models are not rated by BEE and manufacturers also do not provide data for electricity consumption (as it is not mandated by the government), so it will be difficult for us to tell you a good model with least energy consumption. All I can say is that Panasonic and Hitachi would have bottom freezer models with inverter technology compressor, which would be good. Or else you can choose one from conventional ones.

  • shashank

    need to buy a refrigrtor between 275- 350 litre, m very much confused, as i need space,instant cooling option, dual fridge option etc. and also had a good quality and after sale support, so suggest please. with specific model in a value for money.

    • shashank

      and as my info, both samsung and also had dual fridge options

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Shashank,

      What do you mean by Dual Fridge option? Are you looking for a fridge where freezer can be converted to refrigerator?

    • shashank

      yes Abhishek, m looking for alike convertible freezer. Suggest me one of both type. if the same is not worthy.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Shashank,

      Samsung is the only brand that I know of that makes convertible freezer model. All their convertible freezer models are BEE 3 star rated as per current standards for refrigerators by BEE. They have 318,321 and 345 lts models with different design variations. Energy efficiency wise, they are all similar. You can look at their models on this link: http://www.samsung.com/in/consumer/home-appliances/refrigerators

      Just filter for 300-350 lts and two door and you will get their models. You can choose the design. All of them are smart convertible models.

  • Pinky Choksi

    I have just bought Whirlpool Pro355 model 340 ltr today. But when I turned it on it’s right side wall is too hot like it’s fuming n back side is more than that. I can say if a toddler is in kitchen she might be get burn scars in hands. Help me please

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      There is certainly something wrong with the model that you have got. It should not burn like that. Somewhere something is wrong. You should call up Whirlpool and get the model checked. It would be consuming a lot of electricity. One reason that could be possible is that you do not have enough space around the refrigerator for heat to dissipate. Try keeping 6 inch space around the refrigerator.

    • Pinky Choksi

      I have done it. But the technician said it will heat as cooling panels are there. It’s normal. Don’t worry. So now what should I do?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      I think you should return the refrigerator if possible. It should not be so hot. If it is that hot then it would be consuming a lot of electricity. Refrigerators are slightly hot on the back but not on the sides.

    • Pinky Choksi

      again called in whirlpool today..N again technician said it will get hot. I’m really not getting than if it’s getting hot by default than y should one have refrigerator cum heater. N yeah sir I was also worrying about my electricity bill now. They are saying it’s Normal..N also said it will get hot by sides also. Hot is ok but terribly hot how? What should I do now? Guide me something

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      If you can return the model then that would be better. It should not be so hot.

    • abhishek bansal

      Hi can you tell me about haeir SBS HRF 681 (565L) refrigerator.
      Is it a good refrigerator and its energy ratings.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Abhishek,

      Side by Side refrigerator models are not rated by BEE on star rating, so there is no government data on this model. Haier on it’s website says that its power consumption if 0.98 units/day and I assume that it would be in test conditions. A model of that size consuming about 1 unit/day would be rated as BEE 3 star. Which I think is a good energy efficiency. It does not have inverter technology compressor which I think would have been better. But yet from what the manufacturer says, its efficiency looks good and the model also looks good.

  • Monu Singh

    Hello,
    I could not find the ratings for side-by-side Refrigerator models of LG. Specifically, model No. GC-B207GLQS.
    Further, how is electricity consumption (yearly) of a refrigerator defined ? I mean how many hours per year a refrigerator is expected to run for the specified power consumption ?

    Thanks.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Monu,

      BEE or Bureau of Energy Efficiency of India has not yet defined star ratings for multi door and side by side refrigerators. And just because it is not defined or mandatory, manufacturers do not publish power consumption data for them (sad but true). So I cannot comment on the electricity consumption of this model.

      A refrigerator is typically used 24 hours a day and 365 days. So annual electricity consumption of refrigerator assumes 24 hours usage and 365 days a year. However many a times the power consumption also depends on usage patterns (how frequently you open close it, and what kind of things you keep in it). The numbers by BEE are in standard test conditions and what we have observed is that typically in actuals it is 30% more than that number. It can be more that that as well depending on your usage.

  • prasad

    Hi Sir,
    I want to buy a refrigerator, looking copacity 190-200ltr. I selected 1) whirlpool 215 imfresh prm 5s 200ltr 2) Godrej 195 ltr RD Edgezx cts 5.2 both are having 5* rating and cost 13500 at flipcart shopping. Which one is better ? and flipcarts refrigerator products are reliable?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hello Mr Prasad,

      Firstly it is not Flipkart that is selling the product. Flipkart is just a marketplace (like your local mall). There is vendor/seller on flipkart that is selling the actual product (just like your shop in the mall). You need to check the seller rating before buying the product. Avoid buying from an unrated seller. Also the brands you have chosen, both are quite good. Based on my own personal experience I would suggest Whirlpool.

    • Garde Prasad

      Thank you sir

  • mona

    Hi Sir,
    I am looking for double door refrigerator. I have shorlisted videocon 330ltr (latest tech as per store) and LG 308 ltr . pleasec help me choose. both are being offfered to me at 29000. also let me know if rate is good?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      What is the model numbers that you are looking at? The reason I am asking this is because if you just ask a suggestion on a car and say which sedan is better Toyota or Hyundai …. no one can say anything …. but if you ask Toyota Camary is better or Hyundai Accent is better …. then someone can really give inputs….. becaus Toyota has Corolla, Camary, etc etc and Hyundai has Accent, Verna, etc etc ….. if you compare Corrola and Verna … then they are similar models ….. but Accent is entry level sedan while Camary is premium sedan ….. so truly speaking …. in every appliance, you can compare model number … because for the same size….. there are multiple models with different specifications.

  • p raviraju

    Hello sir namastte. please suggest the best double door refrigerator for the price bellow 20k for the house.

  • sangs

    Want to buy a bottom freezer refrigerator. Which one do u recommend? Its available only in Haier, Hitachi and Panasonic. Want to also nuy above 500 litres capacity. Thanks!

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Bottom freezer models are not rated by BEE and even the manufacturers do not provide their energy consumption data. So it is hard to compare. Hitachi and Panasonic are great brands.

  • Mahadev

    Is Viiocon is using invertor technology

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Videocon is not using inverter technology in any of the models currently available in the market.

  • Shan Sharma

    Hello Bijlibachao team,

    I have bought Whirlpool FP 263D PROTTON ROY 240 L Triple Door Refrigerator and would like to know if you are aware about they mean by this unit taking less than CFL power however being triple door one it’s not part of the BEE Star ratings.

    Regards,
    Shan.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Well, it truly depends on what sized CFL are you taking to compare. CFLs come in 5W, 10W, 15W, 21W, 25W, etc variants. Let’s assume you take 15W CFL and you use it for 24 hours in a day. So your total electricity consumption of that CFL would be 15 x 24 = 360 Wh or 0.36 kWh or 0.36 units. If you take the same as 23 W CFL, it would be 23 x 24 = 552 Wh or 0.552 kWh or 0.552 units.

      Now most BEE 5 star rated refrigerators of 240L would have annual electricity consumption of about 200 units (or less). Which means their per day electricity consumption is 200/365 = 0.55 …. so if you actually have to compare, you will have to compare it with using a 23W CFL for full 24 hours.

    Hello bijli bacho,

    How would whirlpool fp 263d be in compassion with other lg or Samsung models ? I am basically looking for 240-260 lts. In between 20-30k.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Whirlpool has good models, however I would still recommend inverter technology compressor (whirlpool does not have that). If you are keen on Whirlpool brand then you can go for it as well.

  • SV

    Hi, thanks for the excellent information on various topics. Hats Off….. Kindly answer me two, Recently I have brought a LG GL-M292RPZL and as you may aware its a 4 star rated with Smart Inverter Compressor and also it is designed to work without stabilizer betweeb 100-290V. Recently one of my friend who is an electrical engineer has advised me to use a V-Guard VG50 with it to save any over voltage cut-off upto 320V. In my area we do have some issues with electricity, which will fluctuate soon after a power cut for certain minutes with on and off 3-4 times with little voltage fluctuations soon after a power cut which is 1-2 times in a day in winter and 4-8 times in summers and monsoon. Now, yesterday my another friend who is also an electrical engineer advised me to not use V-Guard VG50 which will damage the fridge/compressor in long run. Now I’m totally confused, kindly answer me two, do my fridge needs a stabilizer or not according to my area power conditions as mentioned above? And, using V-Guard VG50 will effect/damage my fridge in a long run or is it safe? Thanks a bunch in advance.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Although I do not think a stabilizer will damage the compressor, but frankly, you do not need it as your refrigerator is designed to handle input voltage range of 100-290V. On top of it, it is a variable speed compressor, which will just adjust its speed as per incoming voltage. So you really do not need a voltage stabilizer for this refrigerator.

  • sanjay

    videocon vpp60zps side by side refrigerator no star rating how many unit cosume yearly

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Sanjay,

      Firstly BEE has not started rating side by side and multi door models. And because it is not mandatory for manufacturers to declare energy consumption of such refrigerators, it will not be possible for us to provide that data to you. However I would like to recommend that, whatever type of refrigerator you go for, make sure that you go for one with inverter technology. That is the most energy efficient technology available in the market. Hitachi, Panasonic, Haier, LG, Samsung all have models with inverter technology. I would strongly suggest you to go for one of them.

  • ankit dalal

    Dear sir,

    I want to buy five star rated 210 ltr refrigerator.which should I buy and how much power it will consume?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      LG, Samsung and Godrej have good models with 5 star rating and 210 lts. They would consume about 200 units in an year. You can go for anyone of them.

    • ankit dalal

      Thank you for your response sir.i am seen that godrej have 6 star rating direct cool with frost free mode fridge.can it less consume power than 5 star? Also it is effective as lg and Samsung smart convertible/inverter fridge with ever cool power cut technology which is effective with low power and deep freezing.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Ankit,

      Each star rating is a range of power consumption. And there is nothing beyond 5 star as it is the highest level. Brands use 6 or 7 star just to make consumers aware that their models are the most efficient in BEE 5 star rating. This is done because each BEE 5 star rated refrigerator has different power consumption. A consumer should not assume that if two models are BEE 5 star then their power consumption will be same.

      But if you compare them with Inverter Tech refrigerators from LG and Samsung, then I would say that LG and Samsung have far better and efficient technology.

    • ankit dalal

      Ok sir, can you suggest me at least 3 fridge which have a five star rating ,200-230 ltr capacity and frost free/ direct cool but consume less power? If it is frost free my budget is 24000.00.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Ankit,

      Frost Free are mostly above 250 lts. Less than that is Direct Cool. LG and Samsung have good BEE 5 star rated models in this size range (both in FF and DC). You can check the top models on this link: https://www.bijlibachao.com/top-ten-appliances/what-are-best-refrigerator-fridge-lg-samsung-whirlpool-india.html

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi Jyoti,

      Typically fridges consume at least 30% more in real life. If you use it really badly, then it can be more. But in a decent usage, it would be about 30% more than lab numbers. Now if the difference in two models is of 20 units in a year (as per labels), then it would be about 26 units in real life. At Rs 6 a unit, you would save Rs 150 in a year. If the difference is of 60 units in a year, then in real life it would be about 80 units, which would translate to savings of Rs 480-500 in a year. In that case, going for the BEE 4 star rated refrigerators is a better value for money (one of the reasons why we find more BEE 4 star rated models in market than BEE 5 star rated). If I were in your place, I would go for samsung-RT36JSRYESA.

    Hi…Please let me know which one is better from the below two
    1. Samsung RT36JSRYESA/TL 345 L Double Door Refrigerator
    2. LG GL-D402JPZL 360 L Double Door Refrigerator

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      If you are looking only from energy (or electricity) consumption perspective then LG GL-D402JPZL has more volume than Samsung RT36JSRYESA/TL but lesser electricity consumption. So the LG model is better from that sense.

    Hi,
    I am planning to buy frost free refrigerator. Could you suggest me the one from these.
    1. Samsung 253 Litres RT 27JARZESP 4STAR RATING
    2. LG 258 Litres GL-M292RPZL 4 Star Rating

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      From energy consumption perspective, both are almost the same. LG model will seamlessly work with inverter in case you have regular power cuts. Most other specs are quite similar so you can go with the brand of your choice.

    • Raaz Mudundi

      Thank You Team..
      Can u get me any other best models in this category of 253 Litres frost free.

  • Anubhav Sinha

    HI
    I wish to buy a refrigerator.My main criterias for a refrigerator are 300-400 ltr capacity, 30-35 thousand rupees, and my nature of job is such that ill have to move every 2 years. So a good service record..I reckon LG or Samsung..I have shortlisted RT36JSRZESP…pls suggest

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi Anubhav,

      If you are a vegetarian and are looking for more refrigerator space then Samsung SMART Convertible refrigerator is a great choice. RT36JSRZESP is a smart convertible BEE 4 star refrigerator. Which is great. If you are looking for BEE 5 star then LG GL-D322RPJZ would fit the criterion. However the difference between the two would be about 60 units of electricity per year. I thinks Samsung Smart Convertible is a great choice.

  • Gayatri

    Hi Please help me to choose between lg gl D372jpzl 335 litres with samsung Rt36jsmfesz 330 litres for 3 member vegetarian family.

    • Gayatri

      I also look at the following. vegetables to stay in good condition for long days , more spacious shelves, cut fruits color should not change, no bad smell, power back up . Kindly help me. Awaiting your reply

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi Gayatri,

      Smart convertible feature from Samsung is a Vegetarian’s delight. It gives extra space to save veggies by converting freezer to refrigerator. So I think samsung Rt36jsmfesz should be better for you.

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi,

      You can look at these refrigerators:

      LG GL-M292RATL
      LG GL-B282RACL

      These are BEE 4 star rated refrigerators that can fit in your budget.

    Hello, we are looking for a frost free, 180-200 litres capacity refrigerator with 10 years compressor warranty. Could you please suggest us if any options are available for this. Thanks.

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi Mr Mehta,
      Frost free refrigerators are not available under 230L.

  • Anand

    Dear Sir, Very good information.Thank you.
    Currently Godrej had come up with a refrigerator which claims 6 star performance.(Godrej 190 Ltr Direct Cool RD EDGE Pro190 CT Single Door)
    Can you advise if such this is better than the 5 star rated LG refrigerators in the same category?
    Thank you.

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi Anand,

      I could not find this model in BEE data (http://220.156.189.29/SearchCompare/Searchandcompare), it may be latest model from Godrej. But certainly it does not appear in BEEs list right now. The 190 lts BEE 5 star rated model from Godrej that is there on BEEs list consumes about 204 units. LG also has similar numbers. However the most efficient models in this range are from Electrolux & Videocon that consume about 170 units of electricity. Which is certainly 15% more efficient than models of same category. I am sure Godrej would have come out with something equivalent (as they also claim 15% more efficient models). But the list from BEE for public is not updated yet.

    • Anand

      Thank you very much for the inputs.
      In the shops, the refrigerator had a stamp which said 169 units of electricity.
      If this being true, would you recommend this as compared to other models? Are there any other better products to look for?
      Please advise.

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      If it is 169 units then you must certainly go for this model. Godrej is certainly one of the popular brands.

  • Pankaj Jaiswal

    Which one is better in LG GL 205KFG5 single door 190 liters direct cool and Samsung RR19J2414SA single door 192 liters direct cool.
    Thanks

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Both are BEE 4 star. It is quite easy to get a BEE 5 star rating in Direct Cool refrigerators. Many models have that. Why don’t you look at any of these from LG:

      GL-205KAG5
      GL-205KMG5
      GL-205KLG5
      GL-201KAG5

    Awaiting your response..

    Thanks & Regards

    • Bijli Bachao Team

      Hi Abhishek,

      You can go for Hitachi or Panasonic refrigerator with inverter technology. They would be great for you.

  • Murali

    Hi Abhishesk.

    Can you pls help me with the below info?

    What is the energy consumption of Samsung side-by-side door refrigerator? Model RS21HSTPN? I tried searching everywhere, but couldn’t find the average consumption for this refrigerator.

    Thanks!
    Murali

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Murali,

      Side by Side refrigerators are not rated by BEE on star rating and manufacturers unfortunately do not publish the energy consumption of types that are not rated by BEE. I would suggest that you look for a refrigerator with inverter technology compressor as a refrigerator with this technology will at least have electricity consumption equivalent to a BEE 3 star rated refrigerator.

    • Murali

      Thanks Abhishek for the suggestion. I think the model I mentioned has got the Digital Inverter technology. Will choose for the refrigerator in the same lines.

  • Nilesh

    Hi,

    I am looking for a Direct Cool Refrigerator(210L), and short Listed the following models of LG.
    1- GL-D225BSLZ
    2- GL-225BNDE5
    3- GL-D225BMPZ

    can you please let me know the per year electricity consumption by these models so that I can make my decision.

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Nilesh,

      I could not find data for GL-D225BSLZ. GL-225BNDE5 has yearly consumption of 250 units and GL-D225BMPZ has yearly consumption of 199 units.

  • Parag

    Hi Abhishek,

    I was thinking to buy frost-free refrigerator with 238 ltr model (LG provides one). I have Kelvinator with capacity of 210 ltr (10 years old). But then viewed my requirement and 210-220 ltr capacity is sufficient for me as I am using it comfortably last 10 years. So now would like to know good models of Direct Cool refrigerators. Can you please list some of those (preferably most energy savings)?

    I also have a question about Direct Cool: Most of the refrigerators in this category have a button to defrost manually, which when pressed ice melts and goes into the background tray at bottom after 15-20 minutes. Sales representative say that it takes 15-20 minutes for manual defrost. My old refrigerator doesn’t have this button. So I need to switch the unit for at least 8 hours and then entire ice melts up. So does pressing a button in new models actually melt ice in 15-20 minutes?

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Parag,

      Time for defrosting depends on how much ice is accumulated in the freezer. If it is not much then it can even melt in 10 mins or it can take hours. If done on a regular basis it should not take more than 15 mins. But if you do it after long periods then it may take hours. Here are some refrigerators between 210-220 lts that you can look at:

      LG GL-221BNDE5
      LG GL-D225BGPZ
      LG GL-D225BMPZ
      LG GL-D225BSPZ
      SAMSUNG RR21J2415SA/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2725VL/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2725RY/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2835PX/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2835LX/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2835RX/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2835RZ/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2835SZ/TL
      SAMSUNG RR21J2835UZ/TL

    • Parag

      Thanks Abhishek,

      Actually, from the above list none of these models from Samsung are available on Samsung website. And I have sort of made a mind not to buy LG because of pathetic service they provide. Unfortunately, I have got LG semi-automatic washing machine and some months back its dryer section’s door needed to be replaced and they don’t have part available. I had purchased the model only few years back (may be just 4 years back) and still the parts cannot be made available. More than that their customer care executives behave rudely.

      Do you have any idea about how are the Haier refrigerators? I could not find any on BEE website but on their website they say that they are 5-star rated. But they don’t know the actual details (date of approval, consumption in number of units per year, etc.). If you do know about any models from Haier please guide.

    • Abhishek Jain
    • Parag

      Hi Abhishek,

      Thanks for reply.

      I have shortlisted two models: SAMSUNG RR21J2725VL/TL and Haier HRD2405PGC. Samsung model is 5 star rated and it consumes 208 units per year as per BEE specification. Whereas Haier model is 4 star rated on BEE website and consumes 248 units per year. I have following question before making final decision. Would be great if you can answer:

      1. Though Haier model is 4 star rated on BEE webiste, retailers label this model as 5 star. That is confusing. Are retailer wooing the customers by changing the labels?
      2. Haier model shows 43db noise level. No other manufacturer shows this info. Is value 43db low/normal/high for noise measurement?
      3. Smasung model is available at Rs. 18500/- after discount and Haier model is available at Rs. 14400/- after discount. So that is difference of Rs. 4100/-. Which one would be cost effective? Although BEE specifies the consumption units per year, what are the variations in actual usage? After how many years upfront cost for Samsung model be recovered? If we simply take data from BEE there is a difference of 40 units per year. And if cost of electricity in Pune is Rs. 5/- per unit then it would be 5*40=Rs. 200/- per year saving. So Samsung model becomes cost efficient after 4100/200 = 20.5 years. This turns out to be a bad decision. But again, I am not sure what are the actual costs of electricity in Pune. I am using MSEB prepaid meter so their tariff is also not transparent. Besides how much units are consumed on actual basis?

      Can you please help?

    • Parag

      Hi Abhishek,

      Can you please help with below questions? It would be a great help to take me a final decision.

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Parag,

      Here is my response:

      1) In Refrigerator best strategy is to compare units consumed. Star labels keep changing periodically. The model may have been BEE 5 star as per previous standard.
      2) 43db sound level is fine. You can check this: http://fenestra.do/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/Noise_HR_EN.jpg
      3) Cost in Maharashtra varies from Rs 5 to Rs 10 per unit based on consumption. Assuming you are at around Rs 7 and also in ideal conditions the refrigerators consume about 30% more than the BEE star rating, the savings will be of about 52 units a year, so Rs 364 per year. In that comparison the energy saving will not justify the cost of buying a samsung. You can go for the Haier model if you like it.

    • Parag

      Thank you very much for your view Abhishek.

  • Shobha

    hi

    I would like to Buy frost free refridgerator of below mensioned brand and model no. Could yu please let me know the electricity consumption and other pros and cons.

    I would be happy if you could suggest me any good refridgerator with in 22K -23K.

    LG GL-M292RLTL
    LG 255 LITRES GL-B282SMCL

    Thank you.

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi,

      GL-M292RLTL is a BEE 4 star rated model with energy consumption of 238 units a year. GL-B282SMCL is a BEE 3 star rated model with electricity consumption of 294 units a year. If you liked GL-M292RLTL then I would strongly recommend you to go for it as it is one of the most energy efficient refrigerator in its range. It has inverter technology compressor that can not only save electricity but will also keep food fresh for a longer time. It also has a voltage stabilizer free operations so you would not need a voltage stabilizer with it.

    • Shobha

      Thank you so much Abhishek

  • Jayesh

    Hi,

    I want to buy three door refrigerator of APPX. 300L capacity.
    We have seen Hitachi ( R-SG31BPND) & Whirlpool ( FP313D ROY) models.

    Please suggest which brand should i select by keeping in mind technology and energy consumption.

    • Abhishek Jain

      I would suggest Hitachi R-SG31BPND. It has inverter technology compressor which is good for keeping food fresh for long and for energy consumption as well.

  • Srividya

    Hi,

    I need your help in swtiching over to a more spacious refridgerator. I currently have a Samsung double door(side by side) RS20NCMS 580ltr fridge. I find the capacilty low for my family and am looking for a bigger fridge. Do suggest the ones I can consider.
    Also, how do i sell my current fridge which is in excellent working condition. It is approx 9years old.

    Thanks

    • Abhishek Jain

      You can look at these:

      Hitachi R-V720PND1KX 655 lts model
      Hitachi R-M700GPND2 651 lts model
      Panasonic NR-BS63XNX 630 lts model
      Panasonic NR-BS63VSX1 630 lts model
      You can also look at LGs side by side linear inverter models on this link: http://www.lg.com/in/side-by-side-refrigerators
      Samsung also has inverter compressor models: RS844CRPC5H, RS21HZLMR, RS21HSTPN, RS21HUTPN (if you had good experience with brand Samsung, then you can go with any of these).

  • Abhishek

    Hi,
    Plz tell me right choice between samsung rt36hdryesa and whirlpool 343d royal triple door refrigerator.Also I would like to know the comparison of their compressors.
    Regards,
    Abhishek

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Abhishek,

      samsung rt36hdryesa is a BEE 4 star rated refrigerator with inverter technology compressor. It will be energy efficient as well as good for keeping food fresh for long. whirlpool 343d royal triple door refrigerator is not rated on BEE star rating as it is a 3 door refrigerator and BEE has not started rating 3 door refrigerators yet. Whirlpool refrigerators have regular fixed speed refrigerators. Their 6th sense technology sensors are quite good in controlling energy use. In fact many of their models are BEE 4 star rated. But some are also BEE 3 star. For this one the data of energy consumption is not available. Also I think it is better to buy refrigerator with inverter technology compressor.

  • Akash

    Hello Sir,

    I want to buy a new double door refrigerator between capacity 300 to 350 ltrs and also confused between Samsung and Whirlpool.

    Please suggest best buy in above mentioned capacity.

    Regards
    Akash

    • Abhishek Jain

      You will get more options in Samsung with high energy efficiency and better technology than Whirlpool. You can look at these Samsung models:

      SAMSUNG RT33HDJFELX/TL
      SAMSUNG RT33HDJFERX/TL
      SAMSUNG RT33HDRYESA/TL
      SAMSUNG RT33HDRZESP/TL
      SAMSUNG RT36HDJFELX/TL
      SAMSUNG RT36HDRYESA/TL
      SAMSUNG RT36HDRZESP/TL
      SAMSUNG RT36HDRZESL/TL
      SAMSUNG RT33HDRZESL/TL

      Or if you are keen on whirlpool then you can look at WHIRLPOOL NEO IC355 Royal. However Samsung models listed above have inverter technology compressor which will be good not only to save electricity but also to keep food fresh for longer time.

  • pratik

    Hi
    I want to buy medium capacity fridge with 5 star energy. Which one is best?

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Pratik,

      What volume of fridge are you looking for? Models are available from 90 lts to 650 lts.

  • Krishna S L

    Sir,
    pls suggest me to buy a Frost Free Refrigerator. it should be 4 or 5 star Bee rated and cost should be around 15000 to 25000.

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Krishna,

      You may look at these. However some of the may cost a bit more than your budget:

      Brand Name Model Number Gross Volume(Litres) Electricity consumption (unit per year) Star Rating Market Price
      WHIRLPOOL NEO IC275 Royal 262 253 4 26322
      SAMSUNG RT27HDRZESA/TL 253 244 4 26800
      LG GL-M302RLTL 285 242 4 26600
      LG GL-M292RLTL 258 238 4 23500
      LG GL-P292RPJL 258 238 4 27000

  • arvind kumar

    I am planning to buy whirlpool neo ic305 royal – 4 star (292ltr. gross vol.). Please advice whether it is good or not?

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Arvind,

      Whirlpool Neo IC range is quite good. You can certainly go for it.

  • sam

    hi abhishek sir, I want to buy a refrigerator around 240 ltr with good BEE rating . I am planning to buy Whirlpool 260 ICEMAGIC PRM 5S 245 L Single Door Refrigeraor . Is it a good choice? what is the main difference between direct cool & frost free variant? Is single door refrigerators have any demerits in comparison to double door
    refrigerators?

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Sam,

      The difference between single door and double door models is their defrost capability. Single door models have manual defrost, which means ice accumulates around the freezer and you need to switch it off periodically to remove it. Whereas in double door models the ice does not accumulate around the freezer. Another major difference these days is that inverter technology which is most electricity saving is available only in double door and not in single door. However if you are going for sub 250 lts refrigerator it is better to go for single door model and if you are going for over 250 lts model then it is better to go for double door. The smallest inverter tech refrigerator is 253 lts model (from LG & Samsung). If you want energy efficient refrigerator around 240 lts then I would suggest that you go for a 253 lts inverter tech BEE 4/5 star rated model.

    • sam

      whether whirlpool 260 ice magic PRM 5s 245 ltr is good choice or not ? Thanks in advance .

    • Abhishek Jain

      It is a BEE 5 star rated refrigerator from a good brand. So certainly a good choice.

  • pinal

    I want to buy refrigerator double door I little confused which one best for me pls suggest me ?

    • Abhishek Jain

      What sized refrigerator are you looking to buy?

  • Ramesh

    Hi Abhishek, I am looking to buy a refrigerator under 10k. Please suggest any models. Me just a bachelor, hence a low capacity one would do.. Thanks

    • Abhishek Jain

      You may look at any of these:

      HAIER HRD-2015
      HAIER HRD-1905
      PANASONIC NR-A190S
      SAMSUNG RA19ADES1/XTL

  • subrata saha

    I have bought an inverter tech fridge from samsung.If there is no power cut for many days then can it be run continuously or should i stop it for some time.

    • Abhishek Jain

      You need not stop it. It can run continuously.

  • kemy

    I am planning to buy 250-300 ltr capicity Refrigerator with Bee 5 star rating & frost free.i also want 3 door or bottom freezer(2 door) concept so i want your sugestion that i go for which brand ? please guide me

    • Abhishek Jain

      Hi Kemy,

      Only 2 door models are rated on BEE star rating. 3 door and bottom freezer models are not rated on BEE star rating yet. In case you want to go for 3 door or bottom freezer model, then I would suggest that you go for one with inverter technology compressor. Hitachi/Panasonic would have some models like that. In case you want to go for regular 2 door models, then you can look at these models:

      Brand Name Model Number Gross Volume(Litres) Electricity consumption (unit per year) Market Price
      WHIRLPOOL NEO IC305 Royal 292 259 30305
      WHIRLPOOL NEO IC275 Royal 262 253 26322
      SAMSUNG RT29HDRZESA/TL 275 248 30200
      SAMSUNG RT27HDRZESA/TL 253 244 26800
      LG GL-D302RPJL 285 242 28900
      LG GL-E302RPTL 285 242 32490
      LG GL-M302RATL 285 242 32490
      LG GL-M302RLTL 285 242 26600
      LG GL-P302RPJL 285 242 29400
      LG GL-D292RPJL 258 238 27400
      LG GL-E292RPTL 258 238 29990
      LG GL-M292RATL 258 238 28500
      LG GL-M292RLTL 258 238 23500
      LG GL-P292RPJL 258 238 27000

      Please note that there are no BEE 5 star rated models yet in this size range as per new BEE star ratings. All the above are BEE 4 star rated.

    • kemy

      Hi Abhishek
      If i go for bottom freezer concept which model would you sugesst in panasonic brand.(ltr capicity 300 to 350
      whith BEE 4 OR 5 STAR RATING) PLS SUGGEST

    • Abhishek Jain

      Bottom freezer models are not rated on BEE star rating. Also the smallest size bottom freezer refrigerator with inverter technology in panasonic are Panasonic NR-BW415XS and NR-BW415BN, both 407 lts model.

  • Vipul

    Hi Abhishek

    I m looking to buy 5 star rating refrigerator with capacity of 450-500 litre. I will be replacing my old Whirlpool 350L which is 12+ years old.

    Please suggest.

    Thanks
    Vipul

    • Abhishek Jain

      You can look at these models from LG: GL-M542GPHM or GL-M522GSHM

  • Ana

    Hi Abhisek, I am confused to buy between LG and Samsung for cap. 500-700L with side by side door/4 doors, with small freezer, without water dispenser, what the best model and brand for this category. Many thanks and highly appreciate for your advice.

    • Abhishek Jain

      I would suggest that you look at Hitachi or Panasonic for this size range. Look for refrigerator with inverter technology compressor.

  • Vaishali

    Hi Abhishek, first a big Thank You for this great effort and expert advice which makes our life so much easier to buy the correct thing. I am debating to buy between a lg and samsung above 500 litres with a water dispenser. Ideally I would like to have a spacious, neat compartments double door fridge. What would be the best model in this category?

    • Abhishek Jain

      You can look at these two models: SAMSUNG RT56H6679SL or SAMSUNG RT54H6679SL. These should fit into your requirements. These are the most energy efficient models with water dispenser.

  • bastianvs

    I am planning to buy a whirlpool FP 263D ROYAL(240 Ltr) in the fridge they rated 5 star and says it consumes less than a cfl ? how can we belive them ? they are not saying the watts and amount of electricity consumed ? Can we belive there own 5 star rating ? pls advice

    • Abhishek Jain

      :) What is interesting is that they do not state what wattage CFL will it consume less than and also how many hours of CFL usage do they equate to. Are they comparing to 100 watts CFL, 50 watts CFL, 23 watts CFL or 10 watts CFL? So it surely is a marketing thing. Now coming back to numbers, brand and this model:

      1) It’s a 3 door model and thus it is not rated on BEE star rating, so 5 star rating is not true.
      2) A frost free model from Whirlpool (double door) of similar size (260 lts) and similar price range consumes about 253 units a year (in test conditions as per BEE rating). And it is a BEE 4 star rated model. Now 253 units is equivalent to using 29 watts for all 24 hours and all 365 days. So you can actually compare it to using 29 watts CFL for 24 hours and 365 days.
      3) Now whirlpool is a decent brand with most of their double door refrigerators lying in a high efficiency range. So assuming that the compressors of these models are similar, one can assume that the power consumption would be close to 250 units a year. However please note that the BEE numbers are in test conditions, in actual, the numbers turn out to be about 30% higher (depending on your usage of refrigerator).

      I hope this helps you in making a decision.

  • Raj

    Hi Abhi…

      If you were happy with Whirlpool, you should go for Whirlpool NEO IC355 or NEO IC375 models.
