Just like a chest freezer on an external thermostat has proven to be more efficient than a refrigerator for me.Why do you think that is? After my chest freezer dies, which may be a while, I plan to switch to a fridge conversion. No external temperature control needed, freezer for hops; it's a multi-purpose kegerator.
Another part of it could be that most chest freezer do not have a defrost cycle or any de-humidifying, while most uprights do.
