3 Must-Have Home Appliances and Electronics This Summer
Home appliances and electronics such as fridges, TVs and washing machines are essential to keep your house in order and provide needed respite, especially in the long, hot summer months when chores seem more daunting thanks to depleted energy levels. If you are a new homeowner or are looking to replace your old home appliances, there are a few excellent launches you must consider to keep your home running smoothly.
However, the idea of buying home appliances all at once can either lead to delay or compromise as these are big-ticket expenses. There is, however, a smart way in which you can get them home without overshooting your budget.
Simply buy them on sale and on EMI! The Bajaj Finserv EMI Network allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds as it contains deals on the most popular home appliances in the market and also provides customised EMI financing for you on the TV, washing machine or fridge of your choice.
With EMI beginning from Rs.1,599, you can choose models from top brands such as LG, Haier, Godrej, Blue Star, Samsung and more.
Now that you have found the perfect way to make your purchase, take a look at three essential home appliances that you should have this summer and the factors you need to keep in mind before you zero in on the ones that you like.
Entertainment is crucial for a happy household. Watching television together as a family also makes for a great bonding experience. What’s more, TV models have come a long way in the past few decades. Not only has television content grown tremendously, but screen sizes also stop at nothing short of giving you a complete cinematic experience!
While choosing the right TV, you must factor in the size of the model. If you and your family watch television often or entertain guests frequently, a larger television works best with brands offering a screen size of 55 inches and above, as is the case with the LG 4K UHD LED Smart TV. HD TVs are also now a popular choice with innovations such as 4K TVs, which offer unparalleled clarity and resolution.
The Samsung Series 7 4K UHD LED Smart TV, for example, illuminates the darkest of scenes and you can enjoy watching a riot of colours explode on your screen, which makes for a real visual treat for you and your family.
Other specifications you need to look out for include the type of entertainment content you can view on your TV, whether it has internet connectivity and if its design will fit in with the rest of your room furnishings. Try to choose a more popular brand, which has accessible service centres in case your TV needs to be repaired.
Doing laundry daily or at least every alternate day is essential in most homes to prevent a mountain of dirty clothes that can be overwhelming to deal with, to say the least! What you need is a washing machine that is not just efficient, but it also does the job quickly to meet the fast pace of life you are sure to lead nowadays.
The first factor you must determine while choosing a washing machine is the size. A smaller household of say 2 to 3 people or even if you are living alone, will function perfectly with a 6-7kg washing machine.
For a larger family, a washing machine that is 8kg and above would be optimum. Then you decide whether you want a front-loading washing machine or a top-loading one. If you wish to install your washing machine under the kitchen table, for example, a front-loading model will be more convenient. Then there are the semi-automatic and automatic washing machines.
A semi-automatic washing machine usually contains two tubs, one for soaking and one for drying. So, the moment your clothes are washed, you have to manually transfer the wet clothes into the next tub for drying. A fully automatic washing machine does all this for you with the touch of a button!
Also, have a look at the spin speed of the washing machine. For example, the Whirlpool Ace Turbodry 8.0, which is semi-automatic, comes with a maximum spin speed of 1,450 rpm, which is excellent and will wash the toughest of clothes, such as denim, easily. Other factors to consider include wash programs and the warranty period so you can make the best choice.
Choosing the wrong fridge is detrimental to you and your family’s health, so you must choose wisely. The size of your family is of utmost importance. A household with 2-3 members will function perfectly with a 190-litre single-door fridge.
While a household with 6-7 members will need a lot more storage space and would do well with a 700-litre multi-door, double-door or side-by-side door fridge. Since we are dealing with food items, you have to ensure they remain fresh and useable in case of unforeseen circumstances such as a power cut. So, choose a fridge that has features to take such a scenario into account.
For example, the LG 4 Star Direct Cool Single Door Refrigerator comes with Smart Connect Technology, which connects the fridge to a home inverter in case of a power cut and keeps your food from getting spoilt.
The Samsung 2 Star Frost Free Double Door Refrigerator comes with a cool wall inside the fridge that can keep food fresh for up to 12 hours in case you lose power. Inverter technology is also a great innovation that makes fridges, even more, energy efficient and cuts down on your power costs.
Your life will get much easier when your home has the latest models of these appliances and electronics, though you may want to add an AC, a microwave oven, a grill, an additional sound system, and an air purifier to complete the set-up.
