Refrigerator – An introduction
- Years back refrigerators were seen as a necessity for storing milk based products, eggs, butter vegetables and so on.
Today this hasn’t changed much in Indian market, but there is an awareness about options. For those who are looking to buy a new refrigerator, here is an article which hopes to introduce the miracle gadget which is probably the next most wanted on every homemaker’s list after television.
Typically a refrigerator is a cooling device and offered in many flavors. Each has a unique advantage and a disadvantage associated to it. Lets try and analyze the types out there.
- Single door , normal refrigerator
- Double door, normal refrigerator
- Single door, frost free refrigerator
- Double door, frost free refrigerator
In the above classification the single door predominantly has another smaller door inside for the deep freeze section.
Similarly, the double door is a stacked option. There exists two doors one on top of another each opening the normal and freezer sections respectively.
Apart from these categories there are also more expensive 2 door refrigerators which are placed adjacent to each other. Here even advanced features such as cold water/ice dispenser are present in the refrigerator.
The frost free refrigerator is definitely superior as it requires no periodic maintenance. The regular refrigerator however requires periodic defrosting otherwise the freezer portion becomes highly crowded and inaccessible.
Some refrigerator types have water collecting trays located at the bottom. You may want to avoid these as they can be good spots for mosquitoes to breed.
You may also want to buy a plastic stand on which your whole refrigerator rests. This is just a trick to cause more space under the refrigerator for cleaning the home.
We highly recommend that you use a 15A socket and plug point, 3 pin of-course to avoid nasty shocks while operating the refrigerator.
Depending on the voltage fluctuations we would also advise usage of a stabilizer with some kind of an auto timer which only resumes power to the refrigerator after 3 minutes or so.
Periodic cleaning of the refrigerator inside and outside ensures odor free operation.
