Having a refrigerator at your home can have a lot of benefits for the family in the long run. But having a modern refrigerator can unlock more potential for food and beverage storage, cost efficiency, and more! Here are the top 5 reasons you need to own a modern refrigerator now!
1. Energy Saver
The average lifetime of a refrigerator is said to be around 13 years. Furthermore, suppose your traditional fridge was initially purchased more than 16 years ago. In that case, it may be using twice the amount of energy as most Energy Star refrigerators—and costing you more each year on your electricity bill.
Inverter refrigerators’ compressors can run at a low speed and use the maximum amount of energy to maintain the temperature at an optimal level. Inverter refrigerators reduce wasted energy compared to older refrigerators that don’t have the technology to sustain energy saving.
When shopping for a new refrigerator, keep an eye out for the Energy Star logo since these models come with improved gaskets that seal securely when your refrigerator is not being used.
2. Different Door Configurations
When it comes to selecting the door configuration for your new fridge, there’s more to consider than you’d think. The refrigerator design that works best for you should determine your family size, available kitchen area, and lifestyle.
There are a variety of door configurations to choose from that have their benefits. A few to mention are French doors, side-by-side doors, top or bottom freezers, and more.
3. Maximize Your Storage
Suppose you’re concerned about not having enough storage space for all of your groceries. In that case, a refrigerator with edge-to-edge shelving is a good option. This fridge feature allows you to use the entire width of the appliance by embedding shelves that span the whole length. Most importantly, you won’t have to compromise on what food you store in your refrigerator.
4. Temperature Control
Nothing is more aggravating than having rotten fruits and saggy vegetables just a week after purchasing them. Many refrigerators are designed with preset temperature controls that automatically balance both temperature and humidity, removing the need for guesswork from food storage.
5. WiFi Ready
With a smart refrigerator, you’ll be able to do so much more. At the same time, the functionality of certain smart functions varies by brand and model. Some smart features include remotely monitoring the contents of your fridge, keeping track of expiration dates, quickly creating a shopping list and more.
Most notedly, branded refrigerators come with a touchscreen panel that allows you to create a virtual bulletin board for family memos on the door, from which you can also view recipes, stream music, and browse the web.
