This is a great starting point, but what if you’re not quite sure which appliance options are best for your household? We have the answer! Below is a list of the practical considerations that should be taken into account prior to purchasing an appliance.
You can save money with an energy efficient appliance. It’s not a bargain if it’s going to cost a small fortune to run, so it’s important to be aware of the Energy Star Logo that is shown on appliances such as fridges, freezers and dishwashers.
This government energy star rating can be used to determine how your energy and water bills will be effected based on average household use. Choosing an energy efficient model will reduce energy use thus saving you money on bills.
This is a cost that adds up over time so comparing cost in conjunction with energy efficiency not only makes good financial sense but it also much less impact on the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions over the lifetime of the appliance.
A dishwasher uses much less water than washing up in a sink, however, just as an energy efficient rating is important, when it comes to Dishwashers so is the water efficiency rating.
Dishwashers with a 5 star energy efficiency rating can you save up 50-75% on water consumption, while a 4 star will save between 40 – 65% and a 3 star 30 – 50%.
Water is a precious commodity, especially in Australia and with the average life span of a dishwasher being 16 years, its well worth considering the level of efficiency before purchasing one.
This is one aspect you can’t afford to get wrong. Be sure to measure the width, depth and height of the area where the appliance will be placed to determine what size you need. This will help you greatly narrow down your search also.
While some appliances may look similar, they may have additional features which will affect the price point. Determine what these features are and if you think you need them. This could include fancy additional functions may not be utilised or child safety features that are a must. Establishing what features you need will help to narrow down your options.
Compare product warranties. Be aware that different appliance brands will offer different warranties. Most appliances stores will offer extensions on warranties for an additional fee. Depending on the appliance warranty periods begin at 12 months and range from 24 months
Last but not least, it’s worth checking with the sales consultant what the appliance finish is like and how easy it will be to keep clean and maintain. Anything that makes like a little easier is a big plus!
Looking to purchase all of your appliances in a hurry and with ease? You can take the guess work out of coordinating styles, colours, and brands etc. by buying an appliance kitchen package. This is a cost effective way to save time as it allows you to place an order for everything you need in an instant.
