What is the Weight of a Chest Freezer?
The average weight of a chest freezer in the UK is 38.3kg. That is across all sizes. Here is a breakdown of the weights of freezers in different size categories - small, medium, large and extra large.
We were asked the other day about the weight of a particular chest freezer which got us wondering as to how heavy they actually are.
Why would you need to know the weight of a freezer? Maybe you are planning to collect one yourself, or perhaps the delivery company won't take the freezer upstairs if you live in a flat.
When new, they are mostly empty of course and mechanically they are relatively simple so how much can they weigh?
It seems that the insulation used is surprisingly heavy, although that is a good thing because better insulation can give better efficiency as well a better protection to the contents in the event of a powercut.
Here are some average weights of chest freezers on sale in the UK during 2021. Remember to add a few kilos for packaging material if you are dealing with a brand new freezer - thick cardboard and styrofoam can be quite heavy in bulk!
SMALL Chest Freezers - up to 150 litres
MEDIUM Chest Freezers - 151 to 250 litres
LARGE Chest Freezers - 251 to 350 litres
