Lusting longer is good but here's a caution - see that it meets your cuming and future needs.

But the savings on your monthly elect bill would be better, the cost of the fridge is a one time cost which you control. The cost of elect is a monthly cost, which is only going to go up.

This is the reaason why i got an F & P instead of normal fridge, my bills are lower. And when elect increase comes in (April), it affects me less.

i dunno abt the cooling load. rotary basically works like the invertor. so when enuff cooling, it run slower. becos it is consistently working along the parabolic power curve, this does not add surge/ spikes and drains the electricity.

water dispenser... i recommend u give it a go. esp now with HFMD, chill water r condusive to bacteria.

size of fridge should suit ur need. dun get bigger fridge as u r paying for unnecce cooling load.

in fact, if not needed, dun put stuff inside. chill meat for 1-2 days is ok, beyond tat, it's as bad as buying frozen food.

so plan ur need, not wat u greed.

simple.. 2-3 person in house = small fridge is more then enuff

stuff like canned food do not need to b in the fridge. some stuff need to hv cool storing places not means store in chilled environment.

chilling -- cheese, meat and vegetables (but becos it is very convinient now to buy them, there is really no reason to store a week's supplies)

cold storage -- i recommend u spend more time making ice. if there r odd days when u need more ice, get ice boxes and buy ready ice fr places like wet market or even 7-11. it will still cost u less time and electricity to produce them and store them.

Maybe I don't know how to maintain my F&P fridge but I'm not getting ROI as it's almost coming to 5 years and its seems to be dying. The auto defrost doesn't seem to work sometimes and the technician recommend me to turn it off to defrost it! thumbsdown.gif

For fridges, these are what I look out for

a) SAFETY MARK
- The 2-digit year will indicate how old is the model.

b) ENERGY SAVING LABEL
- The no. of ticks might not be that relevant. IIRC, there is a total KwH rating.
