What to Consider When Buying a Refrigerator

Buying a new refrigerator is a big decision. Not only is the refrigerator a centerpiece among your collection of kitchen appliances, it’s a gathering place for preparing family meals. You rely on it to keep your food fresh. Even when it becomes an eye sore (hello, avocado green!), or an energy hog that’s ratcheting up your energy bill, you might be inclined to put off replacing it. Besides, the moment you walk into a store or begin your online shopping, you will encounter seemingly endless decision points – from sizes and configurations to features and more. But the time is now.
