What to do/ask before purchasing a new appliance
Here are some questions to consider before making an appliance purchase:
• What appliance features are priorities: energy efficiency; ample storage; bottom freezer; uniform cooking temperatures? These features should reflect your current lifestyle.
• How much space do you have for the appliance?
• How large is the appliance’s interior?
• Will it meet my cooking/refrigeration/dishwashing needs?
• How loud is the appliance?
• Will the doors open properly in the space allotted?
• Is the appliance deeper/shallower than the countertops?
• What else do I need to make this appliance work properly (for example, extended water line for built-in water
dispenser, surge protector, etc.)?
• Who are some reliable service technicians?
