Therefore, the old one must be changed to the new one, the outdated one to the modern one.
It's time to figure out which parameters to choose a refrigerator in order to acquire a silent, energy-efficient and smart-functions.
First of all, you need to focus on the size of the kitchen and the rest of the furniture. There is a standard parameter for the width and depth of kitchen appliances and furniture - it is 60 cm. If you choose a deeper model, it can stand out from the overall picture, "stick out" forward. If you choose a wider one, there may not be enough room for the rest.
Its useful volume depends on the size of the refrigerator. For the correct storage of food, a free arrangement in the refrigerator compartment is necessary. A two-compartment refrigerator with a volume of up to 250 liters is suitable for one or two people, 250-300 liters - for three, 300-350 - for 4-5 people (for example, the LG GA-B459SLCM refrigerator with a total useful volume of 341 liters), 500 liters and more - for a large number of people. The fridge / freezer ratio should be 3: 1 or 2: 1.
• manual defrosting;
• No Frost system, as in the SAMSUNG RB37J5220SA / UA refrigerator;
• drip defrosting system.
The most modern is the inverter compressor. It works without pauses, reducing power to a minimum when the desired temperature is reached. This keeps the refrigerator quiet and saves energy.
A refrigerator with a conventional compressor works according to the principle: turned on, cooled to the desired temperature, turned off. At the same time, each switching on and off is accompanied by noise.
For a standard apartment, a comfortable noise level is 40 dB (as an option, the HISENSE RT 267D4AW1 refrigerator).
Depending on the class of energy consumption, modern refrigerators are marked with the letters A, B and C. More and more often there are refrigerators with increased energy efficiency, which are marked with classes A + (GORENJE NRK 621 PS4 refrigerator), A ++ and A +++, the more plus signs, the more profitability.
Until recently, few people understood the need for Wi-Fi in the refrigerator. But fans of "smart home" are sure that the wireless module in the refrigerator is a necessary and useful thing, because it provides remote control of equipment and a number of auxiliary features. For example, the two-compartment refrigerator LG GW-B509SBDZ, which is controlled by touch buttons, and thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi module and the SmartThinQ application, you can set the necessary parameters from your smartphone.
