What You Should Look For in a New Refrigerator | A-Tech Appliance Parts & Service

Before going out and buying a new refrigerator, it’s important to know what you’re looking for and ensure that it meets your needs. At A-Tech Appliance, we’re here to help in any way possible. Here are our top tips for what to look for when buying a new fridge.

Measure Your Space

Do you have a set amount of space for the fridge? Maybe it slides in between the range and a side wall. Make sure to measure the amount of space you have available. The last thing you want is to bring a new fridge home and discover it doesn’t fit.

Opening Doors

Another element you need to double check is which way the doors open. If your fridge is pressed against certain walls and fixtures, you need to make sure the refrigerator doors can open up all the way. Jot all of these things down before heading out to the store, so you know right away which appliances won’t work for your given space.

Freezer Location

Freezers come either side-by-side, on top or at the bottom. Freezers on the top are good for larger plates and storing items (like cakes), but you’ll need to bend over for produce. This is best if you use a lot of frozen food. A freezer on the bottom reduces bending for produce and is best if you don’t use many frozen foods. Side-by-side refrigerators are excellent if you have a wheelchair or want equal space, but the shelves are narrower.

No matter the size of your home, the size of your appliance or what kind of budget you have, A-Tech Appliance is here to help you every step of the way. From installing new appliances to repairing what you already have, give our team a call whenever you’re in need of assistance.
