    A:  Hi - we're happy to assist with this concern. We do not rate the sound level of our freezers, so we're unable to provide a decibel rating for this unit. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. -- Have a great rest of your week. - Pablo@GEA

            Q:Will it raise my power bill ?
            by|Jul 10, 2022
            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  This uses pretty minimal power, but cost depends where you live. The specs say this should use .75kwh a day. In southern California though power can cost $0.35/kwh, so that would be $.26~/day * 365 days = $97/year. So cost depends on where you live

            by|Feb 14, 2024

              A:  Hello. We appreciate you reaching out with this great question – we know how important keeping your power bill down would be, and we’re glad to advise. All our appliances would meet the energy efficiency standards set by the Department of Energy, and this particular model has an estimated yearly electricity use of only 218 kWh, so we would expect any increase in your bill to be minimal. While costs will vary depending on your utility rates and use, the estimated cost of running the unit for a year would be just $26.00. If it might be useful for you, we have an energy guide for the model available here: https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/9d/9db82467-7257-42b1-a4b7-f494b779b12c.pdf . We hope this information is helpful. If you have any other questions or concerns, we’re glad to help any time, here or over social media. Wishing you all the best! -Sarah@GEA
