With a weight of only 45 kilograms, the Haier BD259RAA is quite light compared to most of the other freezers of this age and spec. Freezers of a comparable type and age to the BD259RAA have weights of between 38kg and 170kg, and the average weight is 72kg.
The BD259RAA is a one freezer number of shelves/baskets freezer.
The smallest freezer gross capacity of freezers of this age and type is 250L and the largest is 610L. The BD259RAA has one of the smaller freezer gross capacitys (only 261 liters) amongst freezers of this age.
This high freezer net capacity freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency, and the BD259RAA is typical compared to the other 111 freezers of a similar spec and age that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the BD259RAA will cost £583 over 24 years to run.
Haier released the BD259RAA over three years ago.
At 35 hours, the Haier BD259RAA has a fairly typical storage time during power failure compared to most of the other freezers of a comparable age and spec to the BD259RAA.
If this high freezer net capacity freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to look at the Logik L300CFW14 (£199.99) (40h).
The BD259RAA has a relatively typical noise level (42 decibels) compared to most of the other high freezer net capacity freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the BD259RAA.
If you would consider a freezer with a higher noise level then you might want to look at the GS51NAW30 (£759.40) (42dB), or the GC34MAW30 (£650.65) (42dB) both from Siemens.

Running this freezer over 10 years will generate 2.9 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO_{2}).  
To offset that much CO_{2} you would need to plant 75 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
