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?
