What to Look for When Buying Cheap Fridges?
As you won’t want to be buying a new fridge year on year, it’s important to buy a high quality but low cost fridge. It’s a large amount of money to shell out, even for the cheapest ones, so it’s a good idea to make sure that you set a budget for a cheap fridge and stick to it. If you find that there is a more efficient and greener fridge that is a little more expensive, think about the running costs and your electricity bill before buying as you could end up saving more money if you spend a little more on the outright purchase of a fridge.
Your fridge is not just somewhere to keep your food. You need to control the temperature of your food and drinks so that they don’t become contaminated or allow bacteria to grow. Staying safe is very important and that’s why you need a good quality fridge that has good seals as well as maintains its temperature well. If you scrimp on the cheapest fridge then it might not have as good as seals as one that is a few pounds more, so bear this in mind when you’re buying a cheap fridge.
Don’t forget to measure the fridge that you intend on buying. Measure your worktops and space in your kitchen so you have plenty of room. You don’t want to have to return your cheap fridge if it’s too wide to fit in the gap left by the old fridge. Make allowances and make sure there is sufficient gap at the back of the fridge so it can ‘breathe’. The rear of the fridge heats up as the motor runs and if there isn’t enough space to let the warm air float away. With the measurements in mind, remember that you don’t really want to have to buy another fridge for a few years yet, so try and buy the biggest possible. If you buy a fridge that is too small, then you run the risk of needing to upgrade at a later date. Larger fridges usually have more powerful motors that can control the temperature well, rather than smaller fridges with smaller motors need to run at full speed at day and night. This again will have an effect on your electricity bill so bear that in mind when you’re buying cheap fridges.
As you will already know, buying cheap fridges usually means that they will be white. You can however find a good array of cheap fridges that are different colours, or if your kitchen allows, you could cover the door so it fits with the rest of the kitchen’s cabinets. Fridge-freezers are common as many people do not have the space to have two separate appliances. This is great for combining the space of two units but it also has an effect on the cost. If you’re looking for cheap fridges, then the possibility of buying a fridge-freezer might make it cheap than buying two units – but weigh up your options and available space before doing so.
Usually cheap fridges do not have a great deal of features available whereas more high-end, luxury ones will have built-in ice machines, defrosters, salad crispers and drink dispensers. Now that those functions and features have been around for a while, even cheap fridges sometimes have these available now so it’s a good idea to set an expectation for your budget whether you want these items included on your fridge as you might need to up your budget slightly.
