1 Reason For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the HVBS 5174 is one of the cheaper to run fridge freezers of a comparable type and age that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the HVBS 5174 is £426.

11 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than a year, the HVBS 5174 does not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with a water filter and we think the Whirlpool ART 872[plb_2889877_price] is also worth considering.
