The WVA 31612 NF W has one of the larger freezing capacities (32 kilograms per 24 hours) amongst high net capacity freezers of this age. The freezing capacities of freezers of this spec and age range from 12kg/24h to 38kg/24h.
The WVA 31612 NF W is a seven shelve/basket freezer. Most of the other comparable spec freezers that have been around for around the same time as the WVA 31612 NF W have between one and seven shelves/baskets.
The lowest connected load of freezers of a similar type and age to the WVA 31612 NF W is 80W and the highest is 600W. The Whirlpool WVA 31612 NF W has one of the higher connected loads (150 Watts) amongst high net capacity freezers of this age.
This high net capacity freezer has an efficiency rating of A++, and the WVA 31612 NF W is typical compared to the other 107 freezers of a similar age and type that we have assessed for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the WVA 31612 NF W will cost £642 over 24 years to run.
Whirlpool released the WVA 31612 NF W over three years ago.
The Whirlpool WVA 31612 NF W has a pretty typical depth (750 millimeters) compared to most of the other freezers of this age and spec.
If you are not worried about having a deeper depth then you might want to look at the Siemens GC34MAW30[plb_1715938_price] (740mm), the Bosch GCM33AW40[plb_1715940_price] (740mm), or the Bauknecht GKN 3283 A3+ Shock[plb_1728837_price] (750mm).
With a storage time during power failure of 40 hours, the Whirlpool WVA 31612 NF W has a fairly standard storage time during power failure compared to most of the other freezers of this type and age.
If you are looking for a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the Liebherr GNP 3056 Premium[plb_1852120_price] (43h), or the Bauknecht GT 400 A2+[plb_1728835_price] (45h).
The Whirlpool WVA 31612 NF W has a relatively standard width (710 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the WVA 31612 NF W.
If you would consider a freezer with a wider width then you might want to look at the GSN58AW30[pl_1649034_price] (700mm), or the GSN54AW40[pl_1650544_price] (700mm) both from Bosch or the Siemens GS51NAW40[plb_1649213_price] (700mm).
The WVA 31612 NF W has a fairly typical height (1,750 millimeter) compared to most of the other freezers of a comparable age and type to the WVA 31612 NF W.
Alternative freezers with a taller height that you might want to look at include the Siemens GS54NAW30[plb_1649214_price] (1,760mm), or the Bosch GSN54AW40[plb_1650544_price] (1,760mm).
At 41 decibels, the WVA 31612 NF W has a fairly typical noise level compared to most of the other high net capacity freezers that were launched around the same time as the WVA 31612 NF W.
If you would consider a freezer with a higher noise level then you might want to look at the GS51NAW40[pl_1649213_price] (41dB), or the GS58NAW40[pl_1649216_price] (41dB) both from Siemens or the Bosch GSN54AW40[plb_1650544_price] (41dB).
