Things to consider while buying a Air Purifier | Reviews

12th October 2020
"Buying a air purifier is always worth it; however, don't forget to keep certain things in mind."

Air purifiers are a device that removes the contaminants or allergens from your room promoting an improved indoor air quality. If you are someone who suffers from allergies and is asthmatics, air purifiers will be best for you. Air purifiers remove the harmful allergens, smoke, mold, and particles from your room.

Buying an air purifier is always worth it. With air purifiers, in just 30 mins to 2 hours you can get fresh air in your room. The filter-based air purifiers are best as they won't do any harm to your health rather help you breathe fresh allergen-free air. However, not every air purifier you see is worth it; so, in order to make your purchase worthy, keep the following things in mind while buying an air purifier.

Room size

First of all, you need to know the size of your room prior to the purchase. Measure the area in square feet as the air purifier suitability depends upon the area of the room. Measure the area, then seek out for the air purifiers that apt the size of the room. Besides, allocate the area where you wish to place the air purifier as they are not small devices and will take up a lot of space off your room. If you plan on moving the device more often, go for the portable and light-weighted devices.

Filter type

Do not forget to check the type of the filter as not every filter can filter or get rid of the allergens and other particles. The most reliable and commonly used filter is HEPA aka High-Efficiency Particulate Air. The models with HEPA rated filters can get rid of 99.97% of the airborne particles like allergens, mold, dust, and animal dander.

Technology

Not all technology is healthy for you and your family. So, check out the technology prior to the purchase. Avoid the air purifiers with UV filtration and ionization based purifiers as they emit ozone which is harmful to your health and may lead to respiratory problems.

Portability and weight

If you plan on shifting your air purifiers often, then avoid the struggle of shifting the heavily weighted air purifiers and buy a portable air purifier. Though the portable purifiers are smaller in size, they are as efficient as the bigger ones and will clean the air in your room with the same efficiency. They don't take up much space off your room and are quite cheaper compared to the large ones that take up most space in your room.

Noise and Energy rating

Every air purifiers make noise, but if you do not want a noisy environment then do check the noise levels. The ideal noise level for a fan running at top speed is 35db. So, check the noise level and the reviews of other users on the online sites before the purchase. Many purifiers also come with sleep mode which reduces the noise level to its maximum extent. 

Besides, check the energy rating of the air purifier as well. The models with higher energy star are more efficient and use less amount of electricity. Save energy, save the environment, and go for the higher energy star rated air purifiers.

Maintenance

The filters of the air purifiers must be replaced quite often and the purifier must be maintained quite often; so, don't forget to check the after-sale service of the company. 

Warranty

Check all the terms and conditions in the warranty while buying an air purifier.

Things to consider while buying a refrigerator

21st September 2020
"Buying refrigerators isn't a piece of cake. From storage capacity to other features everything must be considered,"

Refrigerators, one of the essentials for every kitchen, be it for storing your veggies and eggs or for storing your dairy products or any leftovers. As it stores every ingredient in your dish and every food you cook, its purchase should be done considering all the factors. Besides your health, refrigerators are bought to last a longer period; so, several factors should be considered. Here we show you some of the most important things to consider while buying a refrigerator.

Energy star

Who knew you could benefit yourself and the environment at the same time? The refrigerators with ENERGY STAR mean low prices, low energy consumption, and a low hindrance to the environment without having to compromise or reducing your satisfaction. So, try considering the purchase of ENERGY-certified refrigerators.

Storage capacity

First off, know the space available for your refrigerator. Don't forget to measure the dimensions of your old unit, in case of replacement, or the dimensions of the space that you allocate for your refrigerators. Don't forget to measure the counter depth and entry points as well. Besides the space capacity, the storage capacity of the refrigerator itself is also essential. So, know the required storage capacity for your refrigerators.

Style

The refrigerator you buy today lasts for a long time; so, you might not want to get bored and frustrated with the designs and features in the near future. Some refrigerators come with top freezer, some with bottom freezer, side-by-side, and some with french door; so, make your choice considering your requirements.

Freezer

The freezer may be at the top, bottom, or at the side. Try to stick with the top-mounted freezer refrigerators as far as possible unless If you essentially need others. Refrigerators with top-mounted freezers comparatively use less energy ( less than a 60-watt light bulb). Also, the refrigerators with top-mounted freezers are cheaper than others. 

Size and Compatibility

The size of refrigerators should be considered while buying a refrigerator. The greater the size, the higher the energy consumption; but you don't want to consume high energy unnecessarily, do you? Normally, 16-20 cubic feet refrigerators are best for your kitchen, there's no need to go higher than that.

Features most essential for you

Most of us, go for the fanciest design and features if we have an abundant budget and compromise in case of a tight budget. Rather than compromising or over fancying, go for the refrigerators that actually fulfill your need and has features that are required. Even the budget refrigerators come in different variants with different specifications; so, examine and ensure the features you require thoroughly before buying.

Essential compartments

Not all refrigerators have the same features and nor do they all have the same compartments. Some refrigerators may not have dedicated compartments for meat or dairy or cheese, and some may not have autofill water pitcher and so on. If you require such dedicated compartments and features, don't forget to look out for them.

Things to consider while buying a washing machine | Reviews Nepal

24th September 2020
"Washing machines come in two different types- semi-automatic and fully-automatic."

Washing machines, the hassle-free equipment to wash your clothes conveniently, has been quite a trend even in Nepal for quite a time now. With busy schedules and people's tendency to seek convenience, the preference for washing machines is growing. However, not everyone can afford it as good washing machines are quite pricy and the ones that are cheaper might not do the work. Well, with depth research, you can surely find the washing machine that will be suitable for you. Here we provide you some ideas on things that should be considered while buying a washing machine.

Washing Machine Capacity

The capacity of the washing machine is measured in kilograms that are directly linked with the weight of clothes you plan to wash. If you have a larger family and wash the clothes once or twice a week then go after a large capacity washing machine. But if you plan on washing the clothes in a portion in a few days interval then you can also go after a medium or even small-capacity washing machine. The only problem will be that it will take more time to do all the laundry.

Type

Washing machines mainly are of two types semi-automatic washing machines which require a lot of human intervention and fully-automatic washing machines which is totally automated and you just have to put clothes for wash and take them out once they are done. Moreover, there are top-loading and front-loading automatic washing machines which differ from each other due to the positioning of the tubes for washing and drying. If you are tight on budget then go after semi-automatic washing machines where you will have to manually take the clothes out from the washing tube and put them into the dryer tube. And, in the case of automatic washing machines, front-loading washing machines are the most expensive that comes with a number of washing programs. Nonetheless, top-loading washing machines are also quite good as they offer decent wash programs at a smaller budget.

The material of Drum/Tub

The drum or Tub of a washing machine is simply the drum where you wash all the clothes and dry them. Being a major part of the washing machine, the buyer must not forget to examine its material. The drum, generally, is made up of stainless steel, plastic, or porcelain-enamel. Plastic tubs last longer than the enamel tubs as they rust pretty fast. Nonetheless, the tubs made up of stainless steel are the best.

Wash Settings

Wash settings are the wash programs that are available in the washing machines. Generally, the top-loading washing machines come with varieties of wash programs. From gentle wash for frail clothes to synthetic wash for cotton clothes, there are a variety of programs that vary in the amount of drum rotation and temperature. If you have such wash program alternatives, you can set the program as per the clothes you wash and can also save your favorite settings.

Spin Cycle

The spin cycle is determined by the revolution per minute that is used for drying your clothes. The higher the spin cycle or revolution per minute, the better the cloth dries. The spin cycle, however, differs among the clothes. For frail clothes, the spin cycle can be 300-500 rpm whereas for thicker clothes like jeans 1000 rpm will be the best.

Temperature control

It's difficult to wash the clothes at the same temperature throughout the year, especially during the winter. With a temperature control feature on your washing machine, you can control the temperature of the water in your washing machine. Besides, we all know that clothes are easier to clean with hot water rather than cold water.
