How to install an HDTV in your house
A new home appliance could mean the difference between a luxurious life and a cramped one.
A new Home Depot survey found that a home fridge can be the key to a comfortable, quiet life for a family.
The survey of over 4,000 Americans found that home fridge owners had a 50% reduction in the cost of energy when compared to their non-home fridge owners.
It found that the cost savings were more than twice as great as savings on energy bills.
A large part of the savings comes from reducing the amount of water that is used to keep the fridge warm.
“For example, a refrigerator has no moving parts and is therefore very lightweight.
It is also not subject to refrigerant flow,” said David Cairns, director of marketing and sales at Home Depot.
The survey found there was a clear correlation between energy efficiency and saving energy.
The survey found those who bought an appliance with a high energy efficiency rating (LED) were saving more than those who only bought a standard fridge.
The results were the same when it came to water usage.
LED refrigerators were also saving more energy, while standard refrigerators had a lower water consumption rate.
For some consumers, the cost benefits of an HDHomeGard is clear.
“If I could do it over again, I would buy a second fridge,” said Kati S. “You know, it’s not just about cost, it really comes down to how much space you need to fit in and how many items you need.
I think the savings will be a lot more.”
“I love it.
I like it when I have my food in my fridge, and I’m going to get more for it,” said Megan C. “The convenience and the price, it makes me feel good.”
There is still much to learn from the survey and Home Depot is working with appliance manufacturers to make sure that HDHomegard will be available in every home within the next two years.
