    The Steps of Purchasing Green Appliances

    Last updated 1 day 10 hours ago

    Buying energy-efficient appliances is the first step towards cutting down your energy bills each month. But with so many different features and models to choose from, how do you know which green appliances are the best? For starters, look for appliances with the Energy Star logo, as these appliances far exceed federal minimum requirements for energy efficiency. Next, compare the Energy Guide for multiple appliances to see the average operating cost for each model. 

    Watch this video for more tips on purchasing an energy-efficient appliance. And for the best selection of green appliances in Manhattan, NY, come to Gringer and Sons.

    Deciding When It's Time for a New Refrigerator

    Last updated 8 days ago

    A good refrigerator can last for years, but at some point even the best refrigerators begin to break down. While you can certainly repair a broken fridge, there comes a point when it makes more sense to replace your old refrigerator. Before you start shopping for a new fridge at your local kitchen appliances store, read this article to make sure it’s time to replace your refrigerator.

    Consider Your Fridge’s Age

    Typical refrigerators have a lifespan between 10 and 20 years. The longer you have had your fridge, the greater the potential repair cost and the less energy efficient it will be. If your refrigerator is nearing the end of its lifespan, investing in a new refrigerator could end up saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the long run.

    Examine Your Energy Bills

    Speaking of energy efficiency, old refrigerators can cost you money in more ways than just repair costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a 10-year-old fridge uses twice the energy of a new, Energy Star-certified model. Energy-efficient refrigerators make use of high-tech features and energy-saving design to cut back on electricity usage and costs.

    Look at Your Food

    Your groceries can clue you in as to the overall condition of your refrigerator. For example, if refrigerated items are not cold to touch even after days inside the fridge, it may be time to buy a new ice box. A new refrigerator can also keep your fruits, vegetables, and meats fresher, longer. This means you will have more time to enjoy your groceries and might even cut back on your grocery bills each month.

    If you want to cut back on repair costs, save energy, and keep your food fresh, come to Gringer & Sons, Inc. and look at our huge inventory of new refrigerators. We are proud to operate one of the oldest family-owned appliance stores in NYC. Visit our website or call us at (646) 679-3971 to learn more about the kitchen appliances we sell. 

    Tips for Choosing New Kitchen Appliances

    Last updated 8 days ago

    Buying kitchen appliances is one of the largest investments you will make in your home. It is also one of the largest investments of your time, as shopping for new kitchen appliances often takes as much time and research as buying a new car. There’s also no shortage of options to choose from when shopping for new kitchen appliances, which can make the entire process all the more daunting. So how do you know which appliances to choose? For starters, here are some shopping tips for a few major kitchen appliances.


    Before you get enamored with all of the bells and whistles of a new refrigerator, take some time to assess your lifestyle to make sure you get the right fridge for your needs. Consider how often you cook, how often you go grocery shopping, and the types of foods you stock in the fridge.


    Similar to buying a new refrigerator, buying a new dishwasher is largely determined by your family’s lifestyle. If you do lots of cooking and have lots of dishes to wash, a large-capacity, energy-efficient dishwasher might suit you better than a smaller, lower-end model.


    When choosing a new oven and stove, your cooking style (and how often you cook) will determine which setup is best for you. The oven or stove you choose will have a big impact on how you cook. Induction, gas, and electric stoves and cooktops all have their pros and cons, so visit your local appliance store today to learn which one is best for you.

    For help choosing the perfect new kitchen appliances come to Gringer & Sons in Manhattan, NY. We offer the best selection of name brand kitchen appliances in the Big Apple. Browse our inventory online, or call us at (646) 679-3917 to speak with one of our appliance experts. 

    Energy Efficiency Tips for Summer Appliance Usage

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Using your home appliances efficiently over the summer will reduce your energy and water bills during these months. The best way to increase your appliances’ energy efficiency is to use them only when necessary—for example, wash only full loads of dishes or laundry, rather than partial loads. Cooking meals in your microwave will save energy, cook meals faster, and prevent the production of excess heat that must be offset by your air conditioning. Keeping your refrigerator stocked will improve its ability to stay cold when the door is open, so avoid letting the fridge get too empty. Set your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher to reduce the workload on your air conditioner and enjoy energy savings all summer long.

    Older appliances use more energy and perform their functions less efficiently than newer ones. Are you ready to upgrade your home’s appliances in NYC?

    What Size Air Conditioner Do You Need?

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Summer temperatures in NYC often top 80 degrees Fahrenheit, making air conditioning necessary for comfort. If you’re looking for a new air conditioner, choosing the right size appliance for your home will provide energy efficiency and appliance longevity.

    In this video, you will learn that an air conditioner that is too small or too large won’t provide the cooling you want or the efficiency you expect. In order to determine how large your new air conditioner must be, you’ll need to take into account many factors about your home.
