all refrigerator 5 cubic feet

I have always advised and recommended consumers that if they do not require a freezer, then don’t go for it. Every home has it’s own refrigeration requirements, and people living in really cold places actually do not have spend on unnecessary features. Rather than choosing a regular fridge, you should consider other options which saves you money and electricity.

Today we will be covering a few options that are alternatives to regular refrigerators.

After a thorough research, reviews, and testing different types of refrigeration options for homes with variety of requirements, a freezerless refrigerator without a freezer is a perfect match for consumers who do not require a freezing compartment.

As of 2016, consumer electronics manufacturers are making refrigerators without freezers with variety in mind so as to cater to all groups of the consumer society. These varieties in products range from small to full size refrigerators, regular door to drawer type refrigerator, etc.

Unlike yester year, these days we have this option to choose a refrigerator for a specific application, for example, home use only, or for offices, dorm rooms, small hotels, and also for medical use. I personally use haier HC32SA42SB 3.2 cubic feet freezerless fridge at my office.

I thought it would be helpful to share some insights into these freezerless fridges first, here we go.

Types of freezerless refrigerators.

  1. First type we are discussing is the compact fridge, the compact refrigerators are small enough even to be put up as a counter top in your kitchen.There are larger but compact fridges available too, which can be positioned under a counter.Both these small and larger compact refrigerators fit well in your dorm room, in your small office. We do have compact refrigerator to store beverages like beer with suitable temperature for a longer shelf life.
  2. Second in the list is the chest refrigerators, the doors are on the top and helps lose minimal cold air whenever you open the door making it more energy efficient.
  3. The chest refrigerator door is so very well designed keeping in mind the available space for opening and closing without any hinderance.Even a chest fridge like the compact refrigerators come with various sizes and uses for different storage purposes.
  4. Unlike the conventional fridges, the freezerless chest refrigerators are built with baskets which are easily movable and replacable.A regular full sized freezerless refrigerators are the units free standing which are the perfect fit for home use, restaurants.
  5. They come in different door versions, for example, double door and single door, etc.
  6. There is one setback when comparing the chest and the compact refrigerators, the chest refrigerator is a bit lesser on the energy efficiency feature.
  7. An Energy Star Certified fridge is always an optimum choice in the long run in terms of energy and cost savings.
  8. Freezerless drawer refrigerator is the third type with drawer cabinets to pull from the bottom of the cabinet. They come with 2 and 3 doors.
  9. Final type but one of my favorite is the Glass front freezerless fridge which are often installed in the restaurants and provide a clear view of what is inside the refrigerator. A little towards energy efficiency because the doors are not opened as frequently as in with a standard refrigerator.
  10. The glass door freezerless fridge is best suited for places where customers can pick what they want without having to open the doors and also for cooking individuals to pick the ingredients when required.

Do remember that a freezerless refrigerator selection is not difficult if you put some time into picking the right dimension, layout, and the storage capacity required for your kitchen needs. This saves a big deal of shopping confusion for consumers who are looking for a refrigerator without a freezer compartment.

Electric Pressure Washer For Residential Use

Well, we are back with yet another buying guide and this time it is for an electric pressure washer. This is a topic, that I was waiting to write about for a long time now. A friend of mine was curious to know which brand is good and how to choose the right model for his residence.power washer reviews

How to pick a Power Washer for cleaning at your home?

Even before I explain more about the procedures to choose the best pressure washer for home, I recommend you to note down the following tips.

  1. PSI (Pressure Per Square Inch).
  2. Amperage.
  3. CU.
  4. HP.

Usually home use pressure washers serve very well for car washing, cleansing outdoor furniture, the dirt meat grills, concrete decks, and also your patios.

If you are seriously looking for a good power washer for home use then you have to decide whether you need an electric power washer or else a gas powered washer.

So what is the difference between the two?

Electric Power Washers Vs Gas Powered Washers.

Let me explain about the advantages and drawbacks of the models.

Gas-powered power washers.

Best suited for cleaning applications like cleaning the siding,  decks, and removing dirt and tough stains from small to large areas which would normally be time consuming if done manually. These washers pump water pressure from anywhere between the range of 2,000 to 3,000  psi vs. 900 to 1,700 psi for electric power washers, this is what makes the gas washers get rid of dirt 2 to 3 times faster when compared to an electric washer.

The drawbacks do exist and the main point here is to note that anything with a gas powered engine will make more noise but produce more power that one has to keep in control to be safe. On the other had gas power washers are heavy and might damage surfaces if used inappropriately. The sheer pressure is why it is best suited for commercial applications rather than home use.

Electric Power washers

These are best suited for applications involving small work that involves more of cleaning rather than busting out tough stains. The fact that they do not emit any carbon is a good new for eco-friendly consumers. Moreover the electric models are quiet and are not heavy like the gas models. Unlike gas models you don’t have to use any anti-freeze materials to prepare for winter and you can also store inside your home at a safe place.

Drawbacks are considered nominal for home use. Electric washers are slow in cleaning with lower psi compared to gas models and are made of plastic as opposed to the metal material in the gas power washer. These are relatively cheaper and safer than the gas model which makes them a perfect fit for residential use.
