Things to consider while buying a freezer- Reviews

17th January 2021
"Keep your food fresh with good freezer. You need to look out for different factors while buying a freezer. "

If you are someone who lives frozen foods or someone too busy to cook the daily meals that they have to store and reheat, then a freezer is a must for you. While buying a freezer, you must have a clear picture of what you want to know what your options are. You need to look out for different factors while buying a freezer. 

 

Size

The idea of how much you want your freezer to hold so you can get one with the proper capacity for your needs. Also, you need to realize the number of users who'll be using it. You should also evaluate how much space it will take up. Where do you plan to keep the freezer, and how much space is available there for it? 

Cost

Know your budget for buying a freezer, but also keep in mind how long-term costs can compare. If you’re trying to decide on an energy-efficient model that costs more upfront than other options, the costs over time of running it will pay off. 

Energy

Freezers need to run most of the time at least when there's food in them. That means they’ll be using energy pretty much 24/7. Choosing an energy-efficient freezer can therefore make a noticeable difference in your overall energy costs and footprint. 

Noise level

Who wants to hear that annoying sound that electronics make, right? Well, the sound is inevitable but some freezers are quieter than others. Manual-defrost freezers are usually quieter than self-defrosting ones. To get an idea of whether a freezer is abnormally loud or has a reputation for being quiet, you should check out user reviews of the different models you consider. 

Usage rate

The amount of usage also affects your preference. From the size and capacity of the freezer to its type. Know how much food is going to be stored in your freezer. How often do you go grocery shopping? Are you planning on storing food for a few months? Questions like these should be answered to know the capacity of the freezer. 

Organization options

You don't want to keep your hands digging through the frozen meats, pizzas, and ice cream in search of some food, do you? To avoid this you need to keep your groceries and foods well-organized. For this, look out for organization options in the freezer. This way you won't have to get through all the troubles of mismanagement. 

Blackout performance

Blackout performance refers to how long a freezer will keep items cold during a power outage. For most consumers, this isn’t a concern that will come up too often, but having the right freezer can make a big difference when it does. 

Features to look out for

Besides these factors, there are a few other features that you can look out for while buying a freezer like freezer locks, soft freeze, dial thermostat, combination refrigerator/freezer.

Things to consider while buying a TV

17th January 2021
"Buying TV is not a piece of cake, from size to contrast, everything should be thoroughly examined."

Do you want to enrich the look of your living room with a beautiful TV? Or, are you in need of one and don't have proper knowledge about TV and how to choose an appropriate one? If you are looking for basic knowledge or tips to consider while buying a TV, then keep on reading. 

The trend of TV has been somehow decreasing due to the advancement of smartphones and the internet for the past decade. However, TV nowadays is as smart as smartphones with a bigger screen and better customer experience. Buying a Television for your home can be stressful with all the budget that one has to pour into it. Here, are few things to consider while buying a TV that'll cool your stress down.

Size

Bigger the size, the fancier the TV, and the better the user experience. However, one must not forget the capacity of the room. Measure the dimensions of the room and thoroughly examine the size of the TV that you require for your room. You might regret buying a 55-inches bigger, fancier TV if you have a small room of just 7-ft height and 8-ft length. So, select the size that is suitable for your room. 

Viewing distance

Viewing distance, when put straightforward, is the distance from the TV that must be kept in order to prevent any kind of stress in your eyes. Normally, a distance of 4-ft is a must if you're buying a 32-inches LED TV. And, for TV with 40-48 inches, a viewing distance of at least 7-ft is a must. Likewise, for 55-inch or 65-inch LED TV, a 9-ft viewing distance is needed.

Resolution

For better viewing experience, the resolution should be considered. If you are looking TV for normal usage like for watching news once or twice a day, and are short on budget, then you can go for a 720p resolution. Nevertheless, if you have enough budget and use the TV for gaming, watching movies, Netflix, etc., then don't settle for less than 1080p i.e. FHD. If possible go for UHD, or else go after FHD.

Audio Output

TV must have a good screen with good visuals, but the audio output of the TV should also be checked. Budget TV may have a pleasing display but the audio output may be a disappointment. So, try to get a soundbar speaker to enrich your experience with better sound quality.

Connectivity Options

The more connectivity options better the experience. If you want to use the TV for other purposes like gaming, watching movies, etc., then look out for other connectivity options like HDMI, USB port, 3.5 mm audio jack, and other AV ports. Also, the presence of Bluetooth connectivity will be an advantage.

Refresh Rate

Refresh rate means the number of times the picture on the screen gets refreshed within a second. The higher the refresh rate is smoother the video appears. Go for TV with a refresh rate between 60Hz to 120Hz.

Contrast

The contrast ratio describes the range of brightness levels your TV can display. Better the contrast, better the brightness levels. There are different ways of measuring the contrast ratio; so, check thoroughly while looking out for contrast.

Smart TV

Not all 'smart TV' is smart. Some smart TV offer variety of apps and features, whereas some lack in such apps. Better go after the Google-certified or android-certified Smart TV that offers a variety of features including play store, voice assistant, etc.

Things to consider while buying a Vacuum Cleaner

16th January 2021
"Are you planning to buy a vacuum cleaner? Don't forget to keep the given things in mind."

Be it for removing dirt and debris from your room or to keep your cars and leathers dust-free, vacuum cleaners are pretty useful and essential for leading a healthy life far from any kind of respiratory problems. The right vacuum cleaner can make a lot of difference. 

Are you planning on buying a new vacuum cleaner? If yes, then do consider the given things while buying if you don't want to regret your decision.

considerations-while-buying-vacuum-cleaner

Place and its area

First and foremost, know the place that you vacuum most often. Whether it is for dusting off the dust in your car, or to vacuum your carpeted or wooden floor, you need to know the kind of place you want to vacuum first. And then, know the area of the place for the capacity of the vacuum

Type of vacuum

For various purposes regarding the place and functionality, there are different types of vacuum cleaners. You need to choose the right type from upright, stick, robotic, handheld, or any other vacuum on the basis of the place, area, and purpose of cleaning. If you want an effortless vacuum cleaner, then go for the recent technology of the robotic vacuum cleaner. Set the sensors and let the vacuum cleaner clean the place by itself effortlessly.

Features

Check the features of the vacuum cleaner as well. A vacuum cleaner with a motorized brush cleans the carpets better than just the suction. And one with the button to deactivate the brush will prevent the floor from scattering the debris everywhere. Likewise, go for the one in which you can choose the suction mode for delicate and harsh carpets.

Bagged or bagless

You can choose either based upon your convenience. With bagged vacuum cleaners, you can easily get rid of the collected debris without having any problem. The bagless vacuums are cheaper compared to the bagged vacuum cleaners. However, one may have to face problems while cleaning the filters and if you are allergic to dust and dirt, DO NOT GO FOR THE BAGLESS VACUUM CLEANERS.

Noise

How much noise can you stand? Every vacuum cleaner makes noise while in use. Bigger and more heavy-duty vacuum cleaners make more noise compared to the smaller ones. For home and office usage, the ones that make less noise with lesser capacity will be best. Many brands nowadays are redesigning their products for quieter operation.

Try it out

The best option is to try the vacuum cleaner before buying it. Then, you can know all their pros and cons/ suitability and unsuitability. Push, pull, turn, and lift the vacuum to make sure it is what you require. Do not settle for less.
