The definition of “consumer durable products” is changing drastically. Now, people are more concerned with things like energy consumption etc. Technologies are getting obsolete faster. Companies are not interested in the “Long Product Life Cycles”; they are instead improving the products and coming up with their new variants. However, we cannot deny the fact that we are old-fashioned customers, and we know how to get the worth of our each penny spent. This blog is an attempt to make you familiar with the conditions of certain kitchen appliances. We will tell you that how you can maintain your kitchen appliances for best performance and when to retire them for better energy saving.
It Is Not a “Broken Arrow” – It Can Be Restored!
Refrigerators, microwave oven, induction cook top, electrical pressure cooker, juicer etc., all these appliances function on 2 levels; first, the basic electrical circle; and second, the active machinery! Now, we can understand it with the help of a simple example of a mixer juicer. If it is not moving, and you find that something is wrong with its plugging mechanism, then there is nothing wrong; a repair job is a feasible option, because the core machinery is still working, and it can serve you for a good period.
The Same Machine Can Become a Broken Arrow As Well
If there is something wrong with the copper binding part of the motor, then it is a fault in an internal part, and it is an indication that you should start in terms of killing your appliance. With each of such binding, the efficiency of the machine will come down drastically, and it will kill its efficiency gradually. Now, this is a potential sign; it is an indication that now you need to test the machine with the help of a power meter. Fix its energy consumption; if it is more than average, then it clearly means that time has come when you need to rethink about the vitality of that electrical appliance, which you have been using.
Repaired Appliances Are Voracious to Power
Sometimes, a repaired appliance can bring you in this zone of double jeopardy, where you might end up paying extra, as you will pay in terms of poor performance of the appliances too. Here, you need to understand the concept of “factory settings” to its core. You might have seen it in your mobile phones. It is a kind of troubleshooting button there. However, when we check it out with the kitchen home appliances, then it is an altogether different story to tell you. If they are not working on factory settings, then there are full chances that they are consuming more power, and you are paying more electricity bills.
Company Settings Make Sure an Optimum Output
Every kitchen appliance should always work on its company settings; if it is not working like that, then it is a trouble. Suppose, if a microwave oven or a toaster is overheating, then it can spoil the food, and it is a kind of double loss for you. Consider your kitchen as an industrial unit, think power expenditures as overheads and this will make you realize that what exactly you are losing in the game. It is better to pay some extra attention; make sure that you are taking care of their lubrication needs, and also make sure that you are dusting them from time to time. Dust particles can compel them to work hard and you might end up losing more energy. Dust particles can also invite excessive friction and this friction may lead them towards untimely decommissioning.
It is important to make sure that you are keeping your appliances well-maintained, and in case they are prone to repairs too often; then, you can be happy to kill them or replace them as well. This simple mantra will help you in keeping all the ends well tied for you.
