What capacity and how large?

 

There are two components to consider in space – the space inside your kitchen and the space inside your refrigerator. You don’t want your fridge to be so large that it leaves no space free in your kitchen. You need to measure the available space inside your kitchen so that there is some extra space around your refrigerator for ventilation. You also don’t want to compromise on the space inside the fridge because you know there are plenty of things that you need to store inside it. For a family of two, a capacity between 250 and 300 litres is enough. If you have a larger family, you should opt for a fridge with at least 400 litres capacity.

While the size of a refrigerator is important, the arrangement of the inside is perhaps more important. Some of the refrigerator models have more ergonomic designs that create more space inside. They contain adjustable shelves, salad crispers, separate dairy compartments, deep door storage option and lighter shelves made of plastic. A combination of these features allows you to increase or decrease the space inside your fridge as per your requirement. This is why this option is so important.

 

How energy efficient is the fridge?

 

Energy efficiency is a component that you should look at from the long-term perspective. More the energy efficiency of your fridge, more you save on your energy bill. ENERGY STAR marks the energy efficient fridges in Canada. In any other country, you can browse the reviews and the constructors' info about the product before making your choice.
