Need a New Refrigerator? Make Sure Yours Has These 3 Important Factors

When looking for a new fridge, whether it’s a brand new installation or replacing an outdated refrigerator, it’s important to look for one that has these three important factors:

  • Good ratings for even temperatures – inconsistent temperatures can spoil your food, costing you money each time you have to replace any food that has gone bad. The ideal temperature internally is 37 degrees. Look for a model that is known for keeping this consistent temperature.
  • Uses energy efficiently – it’s always important to check the energy efficiency of any appliance you purchase for your home, especially one that operates around the clock like your fridge does. The average cost for a solidly energy efficient model should cost no more than $80 per year to run. Any more than that and you may have an energy hog on your hands.
  • Noisy operation – yours shouldn’t be so noisy that you can hear it while working in your kitchen. Check the reviews on the model of your choice to make sure it isn’t making its presence known all the time through noisy operation.

When you work with the experts from Bud Matthews Services, we’ll make sure your fridge meets all your needs, including the ones list above.

Common Refrigerator Repair Issues

If you are experiencing problems with your refrigerator, it’s always best to allow a trained expert to handle the issue. Otherwise, tangling with yours without having the right expertise can mean creating a much bigger issue and potentially rendering it totally inoperable. Here are some of the more common problems our experts see when it comes to refrigerator repair:

  • Problems with the motherboard – if you have a totally electronic version, such as a GE, all of your refrigerator’s operations are controlled by a single motherboard. It’s best to let a trained expert handle any issues pertaining to the motherboard.
  • Problems with proper cooling – there can be a number of reasons why your fridge isn’t cooling properly, ranging from issues with the compressor to problems with the thermostat. Rest assured that our pros will find and fix the problem.
  • Problems with ice maker – it’s great to have easy access to ice, but if the dispenser is malfunctioning, you may not get the ice you need. Ice makers can experience problems for a few reasons, so it’s best to let our specialists determine the cause.

Your refrigerator is a key appliance in your home. Don’t leave it in just anyone’s hands when it comes to installation and service. Instead, call the experts you can count on for all of your needs: Bud Matthews Services.
