Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Mar 13, 2020 10:40 AM 


I wrote the first draft of this blog post during winter - and despite my longing for blue skies and sun, I knew that, come summertime, I'd be knocked flat by the heat and humidity! If you're as heat intolerant as I am, you might be desperately researching air conditioners to get you through the summer months. (Check out our air conditioner buying guide if you want even more information!)

I'm here to help you decide between portable AC vs window AC units. The short answer is: portable ACs don't work as well, but sometimes they're the only option. Now, let's dig into the details...

Choosing an Energy Efficient Air Conditioner

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Mar 10, 2020 1:58 PM 


Is your old air conditioner getting noisy, or are you sick of how much electricity it guzzles down every summer? Today's energy efficient air conditioner options can help cut down on these costs. Once you know what size air conditioner you need, it's not too hard to figure out what models offer the best energy efficiency.

Which model is the most efficient depends greatly on the size of air conditioner you need, so we won't be making product recommendations in this article. We recommend that you use the Energy Star calculators linked below to sort through products that meet your BTU capacity needs and other must-have features.

Samsung Flex Duo - Everything You Need to Know!

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Feb 21, 2020 9:00 AM 


A double oven range can be a great way to boost your cooking options: splitting the oven cavity in two means you can cook two dishes at different temperatures simultaneously. A roast for dinner and cookies for dessert? Yes please!

However, there are a few downsides to the double oven range style: the lower oven is usually the larger one, but it's closer to the floor so you have to bend or squat to get to it. Sometimes the oven space is divided about half and half, while in others there is a smaller upper oven and a larger lower oven. The Samsung Flex Duo system aims to give you the best of both worlds by making it easy to convert your range from a double to a single oven whenever you want.

The GE Top Load Washer Lineup - What's Changing for 2020

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Jan 24, 2020 8:45 AM 


GE Appliances is one of the largest appliance brands in the US and was founded over 100 years ago. Their innovations include inventing the over-the-range microwave in 1978 and the first "smart" dishwasher that used sensors to gauge how dirty your dishes were in 1995. They may not be the first brand people think of when they need washers and dryers, but GE has a small but solid selection of top load and front load washers and dryers.
