Different types of Fridge in the market

This is one of the important home appliances in this modern world. The average life of a refrigerator is between 14-17 years. It lets you store food at a lower temperature to lower the reproduction rate of bacteria which directly lowers the chance of food spoilage. A refrigerator has components like a thermally insulated compartment and mechanical or electronic or chemical components which are used to transfer the heat inside the fridge to the external environment.

Refrigerators are designed specially for commercial and home use. Commercial refrigerators have a larger cooling system compared to the ones designed for household purposes.

Things to consider while buying a Refrigerator:

  • Type of Freezer-

    Four designs are available in the market when it comes to the positioning of the freezer. Each has its pros and cons. The four types are top freezer, bottom freezer, side-by-side and French door. Pick one based on your comfortability.

  • External size-

    Most refrigerators have two sizes, i.e standard and counter depth size. One should also consider the area it consumes and the size of the kitchen.

  • Family size-

    Each refrigerator has a specific capacity that it can hold. Adding too much can damage the refrigerator. Buy a fridge with a capacity of 50-200 litres if your household has less than two members, 250-350 litres for a family with 2-5 members and if it is more, go for one with a capacity of 400-500 litres.

  • Energy star-

    Refrigerators usually show this on a scale of 5. The more the number of stars, the higher the energy saving.

  • Other features-

    Most of the newest ones in the market have additional smart features like energy monitoring, built-in camera, temperature and humidity controls, and connectivity. Ensure that the fridge also has basic features.

  • Time and Price-

    Due to the festival season, it is usually during September, October and December that companies bring new models into the market. As a new model comes out, the price of the previous models decreases.
