Appliance Tips

Consider the following tips to keep your appliances running, properly, efficiently, and safely.

Refrigerator Tips

Fridge Tips

    • To help with the longevity of your fridge, and to aid with proper cooling, clean your condenser coils twice a year. The coils are usually located at the back or under your fridge. You can purchase a condenser coil brush to aid in cleaning along with a vacuum. Also, clean the vents on the back panel. The coils exhaust the heat allowing for proper cooling. If the coils are plugged, the compressor gets hot, the coils get hot and the fridge won’t cool properly.
    • When choosing a refrigerator, consider your space, the unit’s capacity, and your budget. Stylish variations on top-freezer, bottom-freezer, and side-by-side refrigerators are in the stores, including some refrigerators with French doors as well as refrigerator drawers. Because refrigerators are on 24-7, make sure the one you buy is energy efficient.
    • If you’re looking for information about refrigerators, Consumer Reports is your best resource. Consumer Reports’ refrigerator reviews will give you honest buying advice that you can trust. Use their refrigerator buying guide to discover which features are most important to consider.

 

  • To deal with a smelly fridge, toss in citrus peels instead of using chemical cleaners and disinfectants. The peels absorb strong odours whiles releasing natural fragrances.
Washer Tips

Washer Tips

    • Clean your pockets, money getting into the pump will cause it not to drain, and stink.
    • Front-loaders use less water than top-loaders but typically have longer wash cycles—some take 100 minutes or more. That’s not the end of the world, but it may be the beginning of laundry pile-up. Since front-loaders use less water, the detergent is more concentrated and the machine’s tumbling action can also help boost cleaning. Manufacturers recommend using HE detergent—that’s high efficiency—for front-loaders and HE top-loaders. Regular detergents are too sudsy for these machines.
    • The best front-loaders clean better and use even less water than the best HE top-loaders. Front-loaders spin faster than HE top-loaders so more water is typically extracted, reducing drying time but front-loaders generally have longer wash cycles. HE top-loaders don’t have a center agitator and use a variety of methods to lift and tumble laundry. They’re high-efficiency because they use less water and spin faster than conventional top-loaders, also cutting dryer time.

 

  • Washer odour can be the result of soap scum. Try reducing the amount of soap you use – suds don’t clean your washer, soap and water does.
Dishwasher Tips

Dishwasher Tips

    • Jet dry is very important in a dishwasher. It is a drying agent that also aids in rinsing, especially in cups. Jet dry puts a film on the dishes not allowing food particles to stick to glasses. Tablets may say they have jet dry with them, but you still need to add a rinse agent
      Now you know
    • Tougher new rules have slashed the energy and water dishwashers can use to get the Energy Star seal. But you don’t have to live with dirty dishes or endure even longer cycles to save energy. Look for adjustable racks and lots of flatware slots. Many also have fold-down tines, which let you fit large or odd-shaped dishes and other dinnerware. Stainless-steel tubs resist stains better than white plastic tubs.
    • Match your cleaning habits- if you do pre-rinse, skip extra-cost power-scrubbing modes and sidestep noisy self-cleaning filters. More models now have manual-clean filters.
      Also, look for cycle-time and other visible displays if you opt for controls that are hidden when the door is closed.

 

  • No dishwasher has a garburator in it, contrary to what you may have been told. Scraping dishes is the best policy. If you don’t, rotten food that can’t get out of the dishwasher will build up in the sump. Then you’re washing dishes in unclean water.
Stove Tips

Stove Tips

  • Gas gets hot faster and is a more cost-efficient source of cooking heat. Remember, when converting from an electric cooktop to gas, make sure to upgrade the range hood as well. Look for a hood that exhausts the number of cubic feet of air per minute recommended by the cooktop maker. A hood for an electric cooktop must exhaust only vapors from cooking food. A hood for a gas cooktop must also exhaust burner gases.
Washer and Dryer Tips

Washer Tips

  • Use a cup of bleach with a straight hot wash at least once a month without clothes to clean excess soap residue from the washer. Use no more than 2 tablespoons of soap per full load and reduce from there.

Dryer Tips

    • Plastic venting on a dryer is a fire hazard. Lint sticks to the venting causing airflow restrictions, increasing heat, and creating the potential for fire. Purchase metal flexible venting instead for a much safer alternative.

 

  • It is very important to clean out your dryer once a year. Vacuuming the inside protects the motor, heater, and rollers while reducing fire hazards We also recommend getting a furnace duct cleaner to clean your venting to ensure proper airflow.
Microwave Tips

Microwave Tips

  • Did you know that to aid in cleaning your microwave, you can place water with some lemon slices in a microwave-safe dish and heat up the water and lemon. This will help in wiping down your microwave and give it a nice lemon scent.
