Posted by Bob Allaire on Aug 2, 2021 10:00 AM

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jul 22, 2021 9:00 AM

Garage Ready Freezer - Best Chest Freezer Models

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jul 8, 2021 9:30 AM 

So you're looking for a garage ready chest freezer. Options are limited, and it can get confusing when you're trying to research your options online - a freezer may get tagged as a "garage ready" model by a website simply because people have left reviews stating that they have installed it in a garage. In mild climates where the temperature never gets much below 40 degrees, you don't technically need a garage ready model, although installing a freezer that way could void the warranty.

If you live in the northeast US or other areas with freezing winters, you'll need to check that the freezer you choose can handle below-freezing temperatures.

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jun 30, 2021 12:00 PM

Heat pump dryers are a newer type of ventless dryer. In general, ventless dryers are more expensive than vented options. The two major types are condensation and heat pump dryers, and heat pump dryers are more costly up-front than condensation dryers. However, the operating costs are lower - half or more the cost per load of a traditional vented dryer in gas or electric

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jun 30, 2021 9:15 AM 

 

If you think of your clothes dryer as being one of the simplest appliances in your home, think again. Most people think that it just turns a drum and blows heat, but there's quite a bit going on inside that big metal box! If you are in the process of researching a new dryer, you know there are many brands, models, and features to consider (you can check out our dryer buyer's guide for more info). We'll compare LG and Maytag to help you determine the best clothes dryer brand for you.

In order to compare the two models, we need to first look at some of the technology behind drying clothes. Clothes dryers have a variety of safety features to not only go easy on your clothes by preventing over-drying, but also keep your home safe if something malfunctions. The average system will have a temperature range of 80 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on selected cycles and settings. There are two main ways for a dryer to keep track of the drying progress: moisture sensors and thermistors.
