4 Other reasons to consider the LEC R5511
Running Costs Are Average
This refrigerator is rated A+ for energy efficiency. The R5511 has an average 24 year running cost of £421 based on average usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 25 fridges of a comparable spec and age.
Released Over Three Years Ago

Average Noise Level
At 40 decibels, the LEC R5511 has a pretty average noise level compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to the R5511.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 40dB noise level fridges currently available including the Candy CFLE5485[plb_2962395_price], or the Hoover HFLE54[plb_2962403_price] which has better reviews.
Fridges with a louder noise level that might also be worth considering include the Indesit TFAA 10[plb_2962378_price] (39dB) which is also higher rated.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 113L net capacity fridges currently available including the Hoover HFOE54[plb_2962389_price] which has better reviews.
If this LEC refrigerator fridge net capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Hoover HFLE54[plb_2962403_price] (125L) which is also higher rated.
