Air Conditioner Purchasing Guide

Throughout the past decade, air conditioners have grown in popularity tremendously – mostly due to falling price tags. If we rewind 10-years ago, it’s feasible to assume that the average household could only afford a portable unit, simply because more complex models were just too expensive to own. Now though, it’s more than possible for absolutely anybody to purchase any type of AC – be it a portable one that can be simply carried, or a fixed window air conditioner.

As the prices have come down, funnily enough, the technology has improved. When you buy an air conditioner today, you can expect your appliance to come with either a 1, 2 or 3-year warranty – and that ought to convince you that today’s models are built to last. Still, though, there are dozens of manufacturers producing dozens of different models. So, how exactly do you look out for the perfect unit?


Window Air Conditioners – These models are designed to neatly and snuggly fit onto the exterior part of your window sill. They are installed in such a manner that the air comes flowing back into the room. Because these appliances sit outside the room, you usually get cooler and fresher air – because the air conditioner pulls in the air from outside – thus meaningless filtering is needed. With Window ACs, you’ll also find that they are much easier to install compared to other models.

Split Air Conditioners – Split ACs are effectively two units. One unit will be placed in the internal environment, whereas the other unit will be placed outside the room. The internal unit effectively captures the warm air and transfers it to the external unit. The external unit throws the warm air outside – keeping it from coming back. In the process, the internal unit cools down air and then transfers it into the room environment. Split ACs can be quite expensive, however.

Tower Air Conditioners – Tower ACs are perfect for cooling down one room. They come in different sizes and shapes but are best known for their sleek looks. Unlike other models, some Tower AC systems have rotation functions which help to ensure that the whole room is cooled down.

You will also need to consider the brand(L.G, Hyundai, Voltas, Sansui, Hitachi ). As with any type of appliance, there are industry leaders and manufacturers who produce cheaper models. Good brands to look out for include Frigidaire and Keystone, although all manufacturers build their appliances to certain standards – and all of them ought to last for a year or more without any sort of internal or external damage.



All About L.G Washing Machine

Washing machines may not be the most exciting or glamorous of the different consumer good markets that exist and no doubt there will be a greater degree of interest both from the media and the general public at large about the latest computer release or the newest iPod model. However, this is a niche of the market which has also enjoyed more than its fair share of victories and successes and there have been a number of models that have completely revolutionized the market.

These products have not only radically altered the expectations of the average consumer but have also served as a potent benchmark to which subsequent models of washers can draw inspiration from. One such model is the LG washing machine which has quickly captured the hearts and minds of consumers across the globe thanks to its unique, ergonomic and highly efficient design which has combined quality and precision with low costs and overheads.

Many of us forget when we buy products such as washers that not only are we paying for the capital sum (the initial amount of money we pay over in order to actually purchase the products) but there are also overheads to factor into the equation. For a washing machine, this will include the likes of the cost of water, electricity and even detergent. These may seem fairly trivial but when you consider and weight them up over a prolonged period of time then you will fastly realize that they add up to a fairly significant amount of money.

The LG washing machine is fastly becoming the number one option of washer among savvy consumers for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, is its impressive handling of the rather hefty loads, the LG washing machine can handle an amazing 7kg of washing at any given time. Given that the average machine will struggle around the 3kg mark this is a significant improvement indeed.

As previously touched upon earlier within the article, the running costs associated with laundry machines can quickly prove to be fairly daunting and steep and so if you are energy conscious then the LG washing machine is an excellent choice for the washing machine for you. It has been ranked as a triple A category machine. It stands to reason that the more components and parts that are included within a particular device the higher the likelihood that at least one of those parts will break down and cease to work in the manner it is supposed to.

The producers of the LG washing machine have taken this issue very seriously and so have actively sought to ensure that a bare minimum of parts is included in the model. They achieved this by ensuring that the washing is achieved by virtue of a direct drum spin as opposed to the complex and infinitely archaic system of pulleys and conveyor belts that are the norm for many models of washing machine. How many of us have struggled to put our dirty, dry clothing into a laundry machine only to then realize that the removal of those same clothes (except this time they are now dripping wet) is made all the more difficult by virtue of the small porthole included in the dimensions of the appliance? Again, it may seem like a fairly trivial feature but by extending the size of the porthole in the LG washer this has made the washing process so much easier for the consumer.

One of the most popular models of the LG washer product range is the WE-8015C and this particular model has impressed consumers due to its extremely low noise production which is capped at 58 decibels according to studies that have been conducted on the model.

The producers of the LG washing machine items range have obviously placed the welfare and wellbeing of their customers as a top priority and this is plainly evidenced by virtue of the fact that many of the models include the Allergiene technology in an attempt to reduce the number of allergens present in the machine and on the clothes of the user. Such commitment to the customer is quite frankly, unprecedented within the industry.
