How to Select the Best Energy Efficient Appliances for Your Kitchen

Probably the most used items in your home are your kitchen appliances, and with that being said it would make sense that you would want to not only find the ones that you can afford but ones that are the most energy efficient as well. Besides the energy efficiency you are looking for you more than likely want them to look good in your kitchen and not cause you to go into debt. Below are a few tips you can use to help you select the best appliances for your needs.

Probably the most important thing to do is to take a look at your budget and what your requirements are for your kitchen appliances. You may want all the features you can get on your dishwasher, stove and refrigerator or you may not. This depends on your personal preferences as well as your budget. The more features something has the more you are going to have to pay. So make sure that you really need the features and you are going to use them. Otherwise you are just wasting money.

You should also do your research and read all the current articles written about different appliances by the major consumer organizations as well as check out what their ratings are for the appliances you might be considering buying. These organizations are objective and will review these products with an open mind and give honest reviews on the performance and their efficiency. Some of these places will charge money online to read their full reviews so you might want to then go and get their magazines from the library. Some of the best are Consumer Reports, This Old House and JD Power.

When looking at the different appliances you want to make sure that you look at all of the rating labels that are on the appliances as well. It's required by law that all appliances up for sale have to have energy ratings on them. Remember that the higher the rating that it has the less energy the appliance uses. So, if saving energy is your top priority then you need to make sure that the energy rating is high on the appliance you buy.

If you own your own home and you are wanting to increase the value of your home then you might want to consider buying an appliance that has a lot of “bells and whistles” because this is a quick way to add some value. By upgrading your kitchen with top notch appliances is more than likely going to give you an edge when it comes to selling your home.

When shopping for appliances make sure to talk with sales people that are very knowledgeable about all of the different features the appliances have. It is part of their job to try and educate the public and guide them in making an informed choice and not just going for the sale.
