It seems that more recently, people lived without refrigerators. Some products were salted or soaked, some were stored in cellars. Modern man can no longer imagine his life without this miracle machine, specially created to keep products fresh as long as possible.
How to choose?
Today, in the home appliance stores you can choose a refrigerator that will not only perform the main function (to cool), but also be able to become part of the sophisticated design. True, exclusive design does not always indicate the quality of the goods. Therefore, the buyer must take into account the main components of such a purchase - quality, price and size. The most important is quality.
Domestic manufacturers today produce models of refrigerators that are not inferior in their characteristics to their European counterparts. You can safely choose Russian brands and be confident in their quality and reliability. In addition, they are quite affordable. Top selling models in Russia - "Atlant".
If you want to buy a good refrigeration unit and do not think about the cost, you can give preference to the company. "North". The second thing to pay close attention to - This is a universal class of energy saving. There are nine of them today, ranging from G (lowest) and up A ++ (highest). It is better to choose the class technique A + or A ++. If you plan to purchase a two-chamber refrigerator, then from an energy point of view it is better to choose the one in which the freezer is located at the bottom - the same place as the compressor.
Criterias of choice
It is necessary to protect the equipment during use. Voltage drops are quite common. They lead to the combustion of the compressor - the heart of the refrigerator. To secure equipment, it is desirable that among the technical characteristics was a system "Volt Control". Today, it produces a manufacturer such as "Atlant".
Experts say that it is also important to pay attention to the service life and the warranty period. The higher both indicators, the more the manufacturer is confident in the quality of their products. The market of household appliances in Russia offers such models with a long warranty. For example, Veko refrigerators have good reviews and serve more than one year.
Another significant characteristic of the refrigeration unit is the number of its compressors. There may be one or two. In two-compressor refrigerators, two fully independent refrigeration systems operate. The first is responsible for cooling the refrigerating chamber, and the second - the freezer. A two-compressor refrigerator is more economical in terms of electricity consumption, although its cost is quite high. Domestic refrigerators have all kinds of compressors.
When choosing a refrigerator, it is important to pay attention to the cooling method. Now popular manufacturers offer 3 ways:
- "No Frost" (dry freeze), does not need defrosting of the refrigerating and freezing chambers;
- manual defrosting (drip system);
- mixed defrosting (the refrigerating chamber operates under the drip system, and the freezer operates according to the “No Frost” system).
As for the “No Frost” system, it performs the forced circulation of cold air, while the products are cooled quickly and evenly. The only drawback of such cooling is the drying of the products, so it is desirable to pack the products well.
Drip cooling system is designed for a temperate climate, in recent years absent in our territory. Especially in hot weather, models with such a cooling system simply cannot cope with their functions. Refrigerators with a drip system need to be defrosted periodically. Their only advantage is reasonable price.
Recently, many refrigerators with a system "No Frost" Equipped with inverter compressors that work depending on how loaded the refrigerator. In general, there are 5 levels of loading. The smaller the refrigerator, the less electricity it uses.
It is worth noting how reliable the “No Frost” system is compared to the drop cooling system.
Most often fails refrigerators that work it through the drip system. The most common problem in this case is the rotting of the pipeline, which, as a rule, deteriorates after 3-5 years of operation.
Here is a basic list of tips that you should pay attention to:
- Choose an option which provides the possibility of hanging the door. It does not drive you into a certain frame arrangement of technology in the room.
- Built-in fridge no different from its "open" fellow, and therefore its acquisition makes sense only if you have all the appliances in the kitchen built-in.
- Do not install refrigerator near heating appliances.
- Pay attention also to the material manufacturing shelves. This is plastic or the most ordinary glass. Prefer glass. The strength is not worse than plastic, but it has an elegant look, does not absorb the smell of products and does not deform.
- Seal at the bottom should not sag, there should be no breaks in its corners, otherwise very soon you will have to replace it.
Sometimes manufacturers put a sticker on the door. "Ag +" or "Microbes Stop". This means that the material from which the technique is made has antibacterial properties. The cost of this option is much higher than the “anti-bacterial” counterpart, and the functionality remains the same. Antibacterial properties, as a rule, are different treated shelves and walls of the refrigerator. It is enough to wash the refrigerator several times, and there will be no trace of silver.
More recently, domestic technology was considered simply excellent, because getting at least some kind of a refrigerator was just a miracle. Forty years ago, it was exactly that. Such refrigerators can still be found in some homes. Modern quality standards are completely different. Freon refrigerators are long gone. Of course, they are now functioning, but they are not at all safe.
Modern Russian-made refrigerators are not inferior to their imported counterparts. First of all it is necessary to note the equipment of the company. "Atlant". She is the first in Russia. The manufacturing plant has been operating for over 40 years and is constantly improving its production. At the moment, the plant produces refrigerators according to European standards. Due to the fact that refrigerators "Atlant" produced in Russia, they differ in price quite affordable for buyers.
Another domestic refrigerator - Veko. Initially, these devices were made in Turkey, but today they are only manufactured under the supervision of the Turks. Since 2006, a plant has been opened in Russia. It immediately began the production of refrigerators Veko, and today in our country they are represented quite widely. Veko models are distinguished by their functionality, excellent quality and ergonomics. The plant for the production of refrigerators is constantly creating new models according to European standards.
Truly Russian Refrigerator - Smolensk. The plant operates since 1965 and produces high-end refrigeration equipment. Production technologies are constantly being improved, and today you can buy refrigerators Smolensk third generation. The main direction in the work of the plant - refrigerated display cases and freezers.
Choose models of domestic production and enjoy their quality work for many years.
