4 Signs You Should Consider Getting a New Refrigerator

Friedmans Showroom

A new refrigerator can speed up meal preparation, keep your foods and beverages neatly stored, and cut down on energy waste. Don’t waste your money by maintaining an out-of-date fridge if you notice any of the following signs. Instead, consider upgrading your fridge with a new energy-efficient model.

Excess Heat: A properly performing fridge distributes heat evenly from its rear coils as it dissipates. However, old fridges will emit large amounts of radiant heat from their backs or sides. Unfortunately, this uncontrolled heat emission is a huge waste of energy. You should replace an old fridge with a new, better-insulated model if you notice excess heat.

Stale Food: A working refrigerator keeps your food fresh, crisp, and tasty. That’s why you should start shopping for a new appliance when the quality of your food begins to decrease. Noticeable drops in your refrigerator’s performance are indicative of problems that may cost more to repair than the price of a new fridge. Start looking for a new refrigerator as soon as produce begins to wilt and other foods spoil prematurely.

Inefficient Performance: Old refrigerator models spend large amounts of energy on a daily basis. If your power bill has recently spiked, an aging appliance may be to blame. Newer models, especially models with the Energy Star label, are guaranteed to reduce energy use. In fact, a new refrigerator could lower your energy bill after a single month of use.

Great Offers on New Fridges: Refrigerators are a smart long-term investment. This appliance can travel with you from home to home and perform efficiently for over a decade. You could also package your fridge with your home to bump up the sales price. That’s why you should take advantage of a great deal on a fridge whenever you see one.
