Home Appliances : Choosing the Right Washer

If you’re about to purchase a new washing machine, the good news is that you have more models and better features to choose from than ever. But picking the right washer can be confusing. Here’s what you need to know before you reach for your wallet.

Understanding the Basics

 

Comparison shopping is always a good idea. But you’ve got to be clear on what you’re looking for. Here are the issues you need to think about right away, and then we’ll walk you through the more advanced choices and features.

    • Size and Capacity
      Washers have increased in size, making them more efficient by washing more laundry at once. If you’re replacing an older machine, make sure the new one will fit in the space you have available. Next, consider how much laundry you’ll do on a regular basis. A smaller unit is fine for a single person, but a king-size washer like the Samsung WA456DRHDWR may be better for a family. It can manage nearly two-and-a-half laundry baskets worth of clothes with each load.

 

  • Front vs. Top Loading
    Top-loading washers are fast and relatively inexpensive. Newer, front-loading washers often cost more but use less water (which offsets some of the additional expense), clean more effectively, are gentler on clothes, and offer more advanced cleaning and time-saving features.

 

 

    • Wash Cycles and Cleaning Options
      All laundry is not created equal. Denim work jeans should get different treatment than silk lingerie, and the best washing machines have a multitude of cleaning modes designed for nearly every type of garment and fabric. Samsung’s WF456ARGSGR features 21 wash cycle modes, including a mode for bedding and a high-temperature sanitizing mode for infant clothing.

 

  • Color
    You aren’t stuck with just white or lime green any more. Consider whether the machine will fit in with your laundry room’s décor.

 

 

Other Details to Consider

 

    • Control System
      The dial-based control knob remains a standby, but next-generation washers feature touchscreens and even Wi-Fi, letting you control your washing machine and monitor its progress on select mobile devices.

 

  • Noise Level
    Front-loading washers are generally quieter than top-loaders, but check reviews to see how loud your selected washer really is. Samsung’s WF456ARGSGR features Vibration Reduction Technology to keep things quiet.

 

 

  • Special Features
    Advanced washers offer a wide range of additional cleaning features that merit consideration. Samsung’s WF456ARGSGR, for example, includes a PowerFoam system that creates a gentle foam that penetrates thick or multi-layer fabrics like comforters. Features like steam washing and Samsung SpeedSpray, which shoots detergent-infused water directly onto clothes, get your laundry cleaner with less preparation by you.

 

 

  • Energy Efficiency
    Check for the ENERGY STAR logo on your washing machine. Power-saving features can help trim electric bills.

 

 

 

More Questions to Ask

 

You may need to dig into the deeper specs when considering the finer points of one washer versus another. Here are some additional questions to ask yourself or a salesperson while shopping..

    • Is the washer an “HE” model? High-efficiency washers typically hold more and wash better, but they cost more and require special detergent.

 

  • Does the washer feature automatic temperature control to correct for especially hot or cold water in the pipes?
  • Can the washer be programmed to start at a later time?

 

 

  • Is a steam setting available to help clean very dirty laundry?

 

Key Points to Remember

 

Need a quick tutorial? Clip this section and take it with you when you’re shopping for a washer.

 

  • Larger capacity machines are best for bigger families, particularly HE models, but make sure it fits in the laundry room. Hint: Bring a tape measure to the store.

 

 

  • Top-loaders are fast; front-loaders use less water.

 

 

  • Multiple cycle choices give you more flexibility.

 

 

  • Wi-Fi features let you monitor your laundry without listening for “the beep.”

 

 

  • Be sure the control system is simple to use.

Home Appliances : Shopping Guide: How to Buy LED Light Bulbs

Find just the right lighting for your home with our guide to buying new LED light bulbs. Discover the benefits of advanced technology that provides warm, inviting light, plus exceptional value and safety in every room of your home.

First came incandescent bulbs, then compact fluorescents, and now thanks to LED (light-emitting diode) technology, the light bulb has evolved again, and is better than ever. Combining low energy consumption and incredible longevity with the appeal of inviting, natural light—LED light bulbs represent the next generation in lighting.

How does LED work?

The LED light bulb is a small digital light source that is illuminated when electrons move through a semiconductor. A digital chip inside the bulb converts tiny amounts of energy into light that is warm and inviting, while the bulb itself remains safely cool to the touch, uses very little energy and lasts for years—at least 10 years with average use*, meaning LED bulbs will more than pay for themselves over time.

LED bulbs emit no harmful UV or infrared rays and use 85% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs**. In fact, just one LED light bulb lasts as long as 5 CFLs or 40 incandescent bulbs**, which means lower energy bills, fewer light bulbs to buy and change, and a reduced carbon footprint for your entire home.

A Better Bulb for Better Light

LED light bulbs provide an enhanced lighting experience, generating true-to-nature tones and warm light that brings out the best in your home. Whether you need clear, radiant light in the kitchen, soft illumination in the bedroom, or cozy, inviting light in the family room, providing just the light you need. Unlike compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) LED bulbs reach full brightness instantly, and are dimmable to the softest levels with absolutely no flickering or annoying buzz. Plus, they fit all of the lamps and fixtures you already have in your home, so you can switch over to LED bulbs right away.

The Right Light for You

Here are a few things to keep in mind while you’re shopping for LED light bulbs:

    • Lumens: You’re probably used to choosing light bulbs based on watts, but lumens measure the amount of light emitted from the light bulb. A traditional 60-watt incandescent produces about 800 lumens, while a 100-watt generates approximately 1,600 lumens of brightness, so those are the numbers you’ll want to look for. With the highest lumen output of any LED bulb, Samsung LEDs provide about 10% more brightness than other LED bulbs**.

 

  • Color: Color is another important factor in choosing the right light. A light bulb’s CRI (Color Rendering Index) gives you an idea of how accurate a light source renders color. Natural sun light has a CRI of 100, while a CRI around 80 is best for indoor lighting in a wide variety of applications. Another measurement of color is correlated color temperature (CCT) and is measure in degrees Kelvin (K). 2700K is a warm color temperature and matches what you are used to with an incandescent bulb. Look for color temperatures in the 4000K– 5000K range in rooms where you want the clearest, whitest light; while a CCT of 2700K will produce a softer, more yellow glow.

Home Appliances : Tips for Organizing Your Refrigerator

Why buy a brand-new appliance and then spend more money on special refrigerator-organizing gadgets and accessories? Maintaining a well-organized refrigerator begins with purchasing the right appliance with the right features for your family’s needs.

Organizing Your Refrigerator

The Internet is chock-full of tips for organizing your refrigerator—everything from labels and baskets to pricey containers and customized shelving systems. But the most important organizing decision you can make comes into play before you’ve ever purchased a single grocery item: buying the right refrigerator.

Start by assessing your needs before you commit to a purchase. Don’t base your decision solely on the outside design of a refrigerator; consider your family’s shopping, eating and cleaning habits to make sure you get the best appliance for your needs.

    • MAXIMIZE YOUR SPACE
      Measure the space you have available for a refrigerator, and make sure you take advantage of every millimeter your kitchen layout affords you. Make maximum use of all dimensions: height, width and even depth. Choose a counter-depth model to gain a few more precious millimeters of storage space.

 

  • INTELLIGENT DESIGN
    Seek out smart design features like high-efficiency LED lighting, which lights up everything inside the refrigerator so you can quickly spot what you want.* Its sleek design also saves more space than the traditional incandescent bulb.

 

An intelligently designed interior will not only look good, it will increase usable shelf space. With an expansive 32 cu. ft.** inside, the Samsung RF323 is our largest French Door refrigerator with enough room to fit up to 32 bags of groceries.***

    • STOCK UP
      Now that you’ve chosen the right refrigerator for your needs, consider a few quick tips to keep your groceries fresh and well organized:
    • CUSTOMIZE YOUR STORAGE
      Look for built-in modular storage features like adjustable dividers, shelves and rails that you can easily rearrange to fit your particular needs. The RF323 provides all of those features:

        • It’s all too easy for a refrigerator door to become a jumble of condiments and other small jars and containers. Adjustable Guard features four easy-to-move guards on the door that help you to organize and secure items of any size.
        • Gallon Door Bins offer a special door shelf with the vertical clearance and depth to fit bulk-size beverage containers or even a whole gallon of milk.
        • Don’t give up an entire shelf of storage space just because you have one unusually tall item. A Foldable Shelf folds in on itself to offer you a variety of configuration options. Fold it back once to accommodate a tall bottle, or twice to fit a particularly bulky dish—the sturdy folded segments will still be usable for storage. Or fold the shelf back completely to accommodate oversized items like tiered cakes or stacked trays.

       

    • Don’t forget the freezer. You need flexible storage for your frozen items as well. A convenient slide-out drawer offers an extra-deep storage compartment with adjustable rails to maintain separate compartments for meat, fish, vegetables, or whatever you’re storing.
      • If you choose (like most people) to store condiments in the door, don’t feel like you have to keep all of them there. Designate a back corner of a regular shelf to house some of your less frequently used accompaniments. Your fridge will not only look more organized without so many small jars and bottles right out front, you’ll also gain some prime real estate to store other, more frequently used items.
      • Group like items together, and always keep them in the same designated area to help your family find them quickly and cut down on energy-wasting open-door time. (“Like items” can mean similar things like dairy products or functionally related items like sandwich ingredients.) Consider your family’s unique needs to decide how best to group your groceries, and then stick to your system.
      • Keep it clean. Even the best-organized refrigerator requires a periodic purge. Do a quick once-a-week clean-out on garbage day to get rid of any questionable leftovers or produce. Sending it straight from the fridge to the garbage bin to the trash truck will keep it from stinking up your kitchen.

 

Don’t let clumsy DIY solutions complicate your life and clutter your refrigerator. Spend the time up front to consider your family’s needs to make sure you purchase a refrigerator purpose-built for smart organization.

Home Appliances : Choosing the Right Dryer

The era of dryers with one setting (hot) is long gone. Now there are nearly as many ways to dry your clothes as there are to wash them. Here are the key elements to think about when it’s time to buy your first dryer or replace an old one.

Understanding the Basics

 Today’s dryers don’t just blast hot air on your clothes as they tumble round and round. Advanced options and myriad settings now let you customize the drying cycle to match the type of garment you’re cleaning. While the basic design of the latest generation of dryers remains much the same, what’s under the hood is far more advanced.

Start by assessing your needs before you commit to a purchase. Don’t base your decision solely on the outside design of a refrigerator; consider your family’s shopping, eating and cleaning habits to make sure you get the best appliance for your needs.

    • Size and Capacity
      As washers have increased in size, dryers have naturally followed suit. Space can be an issue for some shoppers, especially if you’re replacing both a washer and dryer at the same time. Make sure you’ve measured your laundry room and bring a tape measure to the appliance store. Capacity is key, as well. Be sure your new dryer can handle all of the clothes from a single load of washing. If your washer is very large, a 7.5-cubic foot model like the Samsung DV457 dryer can handle all your laundry with ease.

 

  • Front vs. Top Loading
    Like washers, dryers come in both front- and top-loading designs. Both types of dryers tend to perform equally well, but front-load dryers that pair with front-load washers are more energy efficient, have front controls for ease of use, and have more feature availability and cycle options.

 

 

    • Cleaning Cycles and Options
      Advanced dryers feature special cycles including heavy duty drying modes for thicker fabrics like bedding and more gentle modes for permanent press and delicate items. The Samsung DV456 dryer features 11 drying modes, including a “Wrinkle Release” system that helps get the kinks out of your clothes without ironing.

 

  • Controls
    Simple knobs and buttons remain common on dryers, but advanced models like the Samsung DV457 dryer include a touchscreen to control every detail of your clothes drying operation. The digital display lets you see at a glance how close to dry your clothing is, so you don’t over-dry.

 

 

Other Details to Consider

 Once you’ve settled on the basic features for a dryer, it’s time to move on to some additional details.
    • Wireless Connectivity
      Want to check and see if the laundry is done? Some next-generation dryers like the Samsung DV457 connect to your Wi-Fi® network and can let your Samsung Galaxy device know if the cycle is done, even if you aren’t home.

 

  • Steam Drying
    This mode, available on some high-end dryers, helps to remove odors and reduce wrinkles and the need for ironing.

 

 

  • Moisture Sensor
    A moisture sensor takes the guesswork out of how long you need to dry your clothes, shutting the dryer off automatically when clothes are no longer damp.

 

 

  • Noise Level
    Consider where your dryer will sit when selecting a unit. Louder models won’t be as welcome near living areas.

 

 

    • Color
      You aren’t stuck with vanilla white and hot pink any more. Choose a machine that complements your décor.

More Questions to Ask

 You may need to dig into the deeper specs when debating the finer points of one dryer vs. another. Here are some key additional questions to ask yourself or a salesperson while shopping.
    • Gas or electric? Electric dryers are more popular and less expensive, but you’ll save money in the long run if you have gas hookups available.

 

  • Can the dryer be checked easily for trouble? Samsung’s DV457 lets you run a quick diagnostic test and look up fixes on your mobile phone.
  • Is a system available to remind you when to clean the dryer vent? Samsung’s VentSensor lets you know when lint is blocking the filter.

 

 

  • Can the dryer be programmed to start at a later time?

 

Key Points to Remember

Need a quick tutorial? Here are a few quick points for you to keep in mind when you are shopping for a dryer.

 

  • Size your dryer to ensure that it is large enough to handle a full load from your washer. And be sure it fits in your laundry room.

 

 

  • Multiple mode availability—including steam drying, delicate, and special fabric modes—means you won’t have to drip-dry as much of your laundry.

 

 

  • Consider gas models if you have gas hookups.

 

 

  • Check the noise level. You don’t want a noisy dryer near living areas.
