XO Ventilation - Why Consider This Specialty Brand?

Posted by Bob Allaire on May 7, 2021 9:00 AM 

 

Many consumers focus on ranges, cooktops, or wall ovens when they think about cooking in the kitchen, but the true chef knows that ventilation is an equally important consideration. This is particularly true if you do a lot of cooking and have an open floor plan home or do a lot of entertaining in or near the kitchen. (For more info on choosing a new range hood, check out our ventilation buying guide!)

When looking for your next hood, you may want to consider XO Ventilation. Many appliance companies offer ventilation products, but XO Ventilation is a true specialty manufacturer offering a full suite of products, including under-cabinet hoods, wall mount chimney styles, custom hood inserts, island mounts, glide-outs, and professional models.

XO range hoods tend to be...

  • Quiet, even when running at high speeds

  • Nicely designed for a modern look

  • Innovative in terms of features

XO prides itself on its Italian heritage, which is evident in their designs. Let's take a closer look at the brand and a few of their best sellers across the product line, from undercabinet models to chimney hoods and pro hoods.

10,000 BTU Window Air Conditioner - 4 Top Models

Posted by Jeff Allaire on May 7, 2021 8:00 AM 

 

It's a relief to exchange snow tires for regular tires, boots for sandals, and sweaters for short sleeves, isn't it? And yet... sometimes, no matter how much we appreciate summer, there are a few downsides. If you have a large space to cool down, a 10,000 BTU window air conditioner is a great way to do it. These powerful ACs can handle 350-450 square feet, and many options are still 115/120 volt rather than requiring a 220-volt setup.

We've chosen four popular models from great brands to help you decide. Choosing an air conditioner from an established brand helps ensure that you get a solid warranty and that the unit gives you many seasons of performance.

What No One Will Tell You About Appliance Warranty Service

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on May 6, 2021 11:24 AM 

 

"I called a local repair company about this, and they said they no longer do warranty service for [manufacturer] because they don't pay enough."

I see phrases like this quite often in comments and product reviews. Usually, people are frustrated because they haven't been able to get timely warranty service on an appliance. If your relatively new washing machine has started leaking, or food is spoiling in your 6-month-old refrigerator, finding out that you'll need to wait 2 weeks or more to get it repaired is just adding insult to injury.

But I want to clarify how appliance warranty service actually works, and why it is the way it is.

ADA Compliant Appliances - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on May 6, 2021 10:00 AM 

 

Not everyone knows about the benefits of ADA compliant appliances and how they can make daily life with a physical disability just a little easier. We all depend on kitchen appliances to get a jumpstart on our day. Whether it's opening up the refrigerator for a glass of cold orange juice or using the range to pan-fry an egg, we often turn to our appliances first thing in the morning and throughout the day. One way or another, we rely on these major appliances in our everyday lives to simplify things - but for someone with disabilities, using standard appliances not designed with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accommodations can make appliances a lot less convenient - and, in some cases, dangerous.

Thankfully, there are brands that manufacture products designed for people with physical disabilities. Although they aren't the only factor to consider if you are building or renovating a home for accessibility, they're definitely important. In this article, we'll take a look into a variety of ADA-compliant appliances that can make a difference in the daily lives of so many of us. GE Appliances pops up quite often in this post - their website has a dedicated section for ADA compliant appliances.
