4. Choose Some Other Features In Guide On Refrigerator
a). Defrosting Type (Direct cool Vs Frost free)
Simple meaning of Frosting is that , A layer of ice becomes inside your refrigerator. Main reason for frost building is that warm humid outside air of the refrigerator combines with the inside cold air of the refrigerator. Most common causes of frost building inside the freezer compartments are the door being left open for too long.
Frosting problem only occurs in mini refrigerator and single door refrigerator and all other refrigerators are frost free means automatic defrosting works. To defrost your freezer you have to just press a single button which remains inside your refrigerator. When you press the button, heating elements behind the wall of the unit heat the cooling element. As a result, any ice formed on the rear wall melts and therefore the water runs within the evaporator tray located on the highest of the compressor.The heat of the compressor evaporates the water into the air.
b). Inverter Or Conventional Compressor????
- In the inverter, the compressor motor works at various speeds and always remains on. It can efficiently work at a low speed and uses the minimum amount of energy that requires cooling the refrigerator to an optimum level.
- Inverter refrigerator saves more energy compared to a conventional refrigerator.
- Many conventional refrigerator models generally produce a loud noise when it restarts. An inverter refrigerator starts its cycles at low speed, therefore emits less sound.
|Inveter compressor||conventional compressor|
|produce Less Noise||produce More Noise|
|More energy efficient||Less energy efficient|
|Motor remains always on with minimal speed||Motor starts when we give power supply|
|More expensive||Less expensive|
c). How much Star Ratings?
Star rating is the most important factor in buying guide on refrigerator. The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) measures a star rating of all electronic gadgets and start rating is defined between 1 to 5. More star rating saves more energy. Moreover, more star ratings are more expensive.
In all homes, according to my opinion, a refrigerator is the gadget that always consumes 24/7 electricity. So, you have to choose a more energy efficient product.A 5 Star refrigerator is costlier so an individual with medium economical condition can purchase a 3 or 4 star refrigerator.
d). Shelves and Drawers
Nowadays, In the refrigerator shelves come with many materials like plastic, glass etc. You should select a shelf of refrigerator based on where and how you want to use it. If you have to put heavy stuff on shelves you should buy Toughened glass shelves. Shelves that slide even have the advantage of holding tall items like juice bottles. Adjustable shelves offer the same advantages because you can remove one to make room for other things.
e). Some Small Factors
- In-Built water and ice dispenser
