There are a few key factors to consider when determining which refrigerator is right for you. You need to think about how big of a refrigerator you want, where you want to put it, and what type of unit you are looking for. Read on for some insight on how to choose a refrigerator.
When you are choosing a refrigerator, think about the space you want it to occupy. Are you looking for a refrigerator for your kitchen, or do you want it to cool drinks in the garage? Once you know where the refrigerator will go, you will be able to get a better idea of the size. Use a tape measurer to identify the dimensions that you would like your refrigerator to occupy, and then look at the selections and determine how much capacity you need. Then decide whether you want your refrigerator to feature a freezer, and think about whether you would like the freezer positioned above, below, or alongside the refrigerator.

If you are interested in going green and you are not sure how to approach your use of fuel, consider using propane. Although it is a nonrenewable fossil fuel, it is nontoxic and clean burning, which makes it a popular alternative when it comes to fueling vehicles for transportation. Read on to get the facts about going green with propane.
Propane is among the cleanest burning fuels; it produces low levels of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and sulfur, so it does not significantly contribute to acid rain; it also does not produce soot, toxins, or lead. In its gaseous form, propane is not a threat to soil or water, and it instead dissipates into the atmosphere. As a liquid, propane is kept in a pressurized tank with a safety valve.
Propane is a highly efficient gas that does not impact the environment in the same harmful way that many other gases do. Upon combustion, propane does not release as much carbon into the atmosphere as other gases; additionally, propane is naturally oxidized and removed from the air, so it does not negatively impact the climate. Propane emits less greenhouse gas than electric water heaters, charcoal barbecues, and oil furnaces, as well as gas-powered buses, forklifts, and other vehicles and engines.
When it comes to controlling pests, bacteria, and weeds, a chemical solution is usually used. Unfortunately, while chemical solutions eliminate these problems, they create new ones by contaminating soil and water. Propane can be used to effectively eliminate weeds and bed bugs without the use of chemicals. It can also be used to sanitize poultry pens without damaging the birds. Propane heaters are also a safer alternative to diesel heaters, because if there are any accidents in the transportation of diesel fuel, large quantities of soil and water may become contaminated.

While it takes time for the heating element in an electric range to warm up, the flames on a gas-powered stove top are hot from the second they ignite. In addition to serving as a convenience for busy homeowners who like to prepare their own meals, this feature of gas ranges also serves energy. To make your propane-powered grill or gas stove top even more energy-efficient, follow the advice in this article.
style="font-size: 11px;">Efficient Oven Use Tips
When using your gas oven, open it as infrequently as possible. When you do open the oven to check on something that is baking inside, do so as quickly as possible. Never allow your oven to preheat longer than necessary; and, when possible, save some energy by allowing a dish to start warming up during the preheating phase.
style="font-size: 11px;">Efficient Stove Top Use Tips
Always choose the burner that is most appropriate for the pot or pan with which you are cooking, adjusting the flame to create an even better fit. To trap heat and keep liquids from evaporating too rapidly, cover cookware unless otherwise instructed.
style="font-size: 11px;">Complementary Microwave Use
Microwaves are an exceptionally energy-efficient way to heat leftovers and prepare small meals. You can also warm up a meal in the microwave before moving it to the oven or stove for the final few minutes without detracting from its quality. Your current propane supply and gas range will both last longer if you use your microwave at least occasionally.
style="font-size: 11px;">Cleaning and Maintenance
To keep your gas range running efficiently, clean burners weekly and after spills. Refill propane as necessary, and promptly contact a service specialist about any malfunctions or failure you experience when using the range.
Are you an Allentown, PA area homeowner who would like to swap out your old, inefficient stove for a modern, high-performance gas range that makes cutting your kitchen energy use easy?
