If you have to buy a new appliance you will find yourself inundated with offers to choose from. But investing on the latest pattern, the peak and super technology, is not always the best choice. Knowing the characteristics of what you are going to buy you can take home the object suitable for you, without spending a fortune, also in view of future costs that this purchase implies. So here are some tips on how to save on household products.
First, a valid recommendation for all appliances: Always opt for those efficient, energy-saving; They will allow you to cut your operating costs and then on the bill. The savings, even if minimal, will prove to be significant over the years. When you find a model that will satisfy you, I recommend going on the manufacturer’s website to check the data sheet and the user manual. Usually the best time to shop are the months of September and October, when the stores are to make room for new arrivals. If you are not tax about aesthetics, betting on a display model: a small scratch or a bruise might make you save considerably.
Washing machine: the more efficient are those with front load and a spin speed between 1,100 and 1,200 revolutions per minute, since they allow to shorten the drying cycle. A washing machine consumes less power than a dryer, so even a few minutes more spin will guarantee you to save more energy and thus money compared to a prolonged operation of the dryer.
Kitchen: the induction are appreciated because it efficient and easy to clean, but keep in mind that however you will foul the surface of liquids and fat burning. Also this type of stove is designed to be operated on pans with a flat base and if you do not have a kitchen set of this type, you’ll have to include it in the list of purchases.
Oven: Self-cleaning models boater; not only are more efficient in cooking, thanks to better insulation, but will also allow you to save on chemicals needed to clean them.
Dishwasher: Make sure that the front panel the program includes regular cycle, cheap and heavy, otherwise the state of the art digital control panel is not really necessary.
Refrigerator: a small model costs definitely less, but before you buy you need to be certain not only that offers you enough space to meet your needs, but that there is in abundance. In fact fridge and freezers, when they are overloaded, they work poorly, because the air can not flow properly in them. In short, you can give up the multi-temperature compartments or to the digital control function of the programmable temperature, since it does not serve to cool and very rising prices, but not underestimate the capacity.
Microwave: unless they do not intend to use it in place of the kitchen, even in this case do not need to exaggerate; any basic model heats the food, cooked frozen dishes and makes the popcorn. Appliances such as air purifiers and dehumidifiers: the operating and maintenance costs can be quite high; look for a model with washable filter or permanent, requiring attention to the fact that some models have the CADR certification, HEPA and Energy Star on the package, which confirms their efficiency.
