New Hisense fridge launches with highest Energy Rating in Australia

7-star Energy Rating Hisense fridge

Hisense Australia announced that its latest refrigerator to hit Australian retailers earned a 7-star Energy Rating from the national energy efficiency regulator, making the Hisense fridge the most energy efficient in the country.

To achieve the rating, the Taupe Steel 417L Bottom Mount Refrigerator uses a blend of technologies to reduce energy use and cut running costs. Its Inverter Motor Technology provides a stable internal temperature by measuring conditions and managing the output required. Additionally, Hisense’s Metal-Tech Cooling helps keep energy consumption lower than other fridges, while a discrete fan and in-built compressor system reduce operating noise. Figures provided by Hisense indicate the new 7-star fridge saves 44.8% on energy use compared to one of the company’s 4-star fridges.

As is standard with Hisense’s PureFlat Bottom Mount fridges, the latest entry keeps food at optimal temperatures via separate independently-controlled refrigerator and freezer compartments. Several cooling features include Super Cool and Super Freeze, letting you quickly reduce temperatures as needed. Activated by a button press, Super Cool chills food and drinks swiftly, while Super Freeze helps to quickly store frozen food.

Alongside the sustainability focus, Hisense placed an emphasis on style, the new fridge’s PureFlat design means it easily fits into new or existing kitchens. Depending on your home’s layout, you can even take advantage of the reversible door; you can adapt it to open from left or right based on what fits best. The Taupe Steel is also an entirely new colour option for Hisense appliances.

Available now from major retailers, the Hisense Taupe Steel 417L Bottom Mount Refrigerator has a recommended retail price of $1,699.

Being the first 7-star Energy Rating fridge in Australia is an impressive achievement. Needless to say, it will encourage other manufacturers to follow suit as consumer demand for sustainable appliances continues to grow.
