Today we’re here to talk about buying a fridge,so let’s get started .
Measure the space in your home where the fridge will live, you need to make sure the fridge you choose will fit with enough space, around the sides and rear for ventilation.
Also take into account the space for the fridge doors to open ,you don’t want it crashing into any benchtops, cupboards or furniture.
2.choose your fridge capacity
400 liters is a good starting point, if you’re a couple bear in mind the types of food you buy and try and accommodate for this, for example,if you’re big on your fruit and veg, you might need a little more space in your crisper ,if you’re a family of four, your fridge will need to be around 520 to 600 liters, again ,this may vary depending on the types of food you buy and how often you shop .
3. fridge and freezer placement
There are four key styles of fridges, choose from a top mount freezer, bottom mount freezer ,side-by-side or French door ,this is based on personal preference but also height consideration, if you’re shorter, a bottom mount freezer might mean you forget about things on the top shelf of a large fridge, if you’re taller ,it might get annoying to always have to crouch to get things out of the crisper, in a top mount freezer fridge. work out which space you would be using most in your fridge and that will help you figure out which type of placement works for you.
Larger fridges tend to consume more energy ,side by side fridges also use more power ,features such as ice dispensers or chilled water dispensers will again increase your energy use ,make sure you think about this when considering the price of the fridge, the price of purchase versus the future cost of running the fridge .
5. choose your style
This is personal preference, your fridge can seamlessly match your kitchen or stand out as a feature, it’s up to you .
6.check if the fridge you want need specialist installation
Choosing the right fridge is important it should be an appliance that will last you for years, so choose one that’s right for you now and also for later in the future .
