How to dispose of your whitegoods responsibly in Geelong and surrounding areas
You know that saying, “You can’t judge a book by its cover”? Well, it applies to your refrigerator, too! Now, we are not just talking about what’s in your fridge. We are talking about your fridge from a recycling, energy efficient and disposable point of view.
You realize your old fridge is on the blink and you need a new one, here are a few handy tips and information when buying;
Buy a fridge that suits your needs. No need to have a huge fridge when there is just one or two living at home. So much energy and expense are wasted.
Put your fridge in the coolest part of your kitchen and make sure it has ventilation around it.
Think sustainability and maintain your appliances. Proper and consistent care will help in the shelf life of your product and ensure proper efficiencies are maximised.
Buy products that have good warranties. This will indicate the approximate lifespan of the appliance.
Make sure the retailer has a good service system that you can use if anything goes wrong.
Don’t use a second fridge or freezer that you don’t really need anymore. Get rid of it, and your electricity bill will be reduced.
Be conscious of energy efficiency in your new refrigerator. The star ratings are there to guide you and your retailer should be able to help you considerably in your choice. The higher the star rating the better efficiencies the appliance will have. They may be slightly more expensive, but in the long run, it will work both to your benefit and the environment.
