    A Closer Look at the Different Types of Washing Machines

    Last updated 4 days ago

    Due primarily to the size of the average apartment, NYC is one of the few places in the country where washing machines are not found in almost every household. If you are looking to invest in a washing machine for the first time, this helpful guide can provide you with an overview of the different types of washing machines and the benefits and drawbacks of each appliance type.

    Conventional Top-Loading Washing Machine

    The appliance that most likely comes to your mind when you hear “classic washing machine,” top-loading washing machines tend to be the most affordable type of washing machines. They work fine and are the smartest option for homeowners on tight budgets, but they are neither space- nor energy-efficient. This type of appliance tends to be less desirable than other washing machine types.

    High-Efficiency Top-Loading Washing Machine

    A step up from the conventional top-loading washing machine, a high-efficiency model does what a conventional model does but in much less time. High-efficiency top-loaders also tend to vibrate less and are less susceptible to mildew and musty smells.

    Front-Loading Washing Machine

    Elegant and practical, front-loading washers are the preferred choice among many homeowners shopping for washing appliances today. They tend to offer the best performance in terms of cleaning and energy efficiency. Front-loading washing machines are also space-efficient. An acceptable dryer can be stacked on top of a front-loading washing machine to save space in a small apartment or home.

    Retracing the History of Bertazzoni

    Last updated 11 days ago

    For five generations, the family-owned Bertazzoni company has manufactured kitchen appliances with precision, care, and an eye for design. To understand what makes Bertazzoni products noteworthy, one must understand the company’s history and influences.

    During the latter half of the 19th century, Francesco Bertazzoni hatched a plan to make wood-burning stoves fashioned after those he had seen being imported from the north. These stoves were the first appliance the company manufactured, following its founding in 1882. Since that time, Bertazzoni has added built-in ovens, gas ranges, microwaves, and ventilation equipment to its product line.

    Throughout its tenure as a manufacturer of high-quality kitchen appliances, Bertazzoni has been driven by the importance of tasty food and a precise engineering tradition. If you live in NYC or Long Island and would like to take a look at Bertazzoni’s high-end appliances, visit the Gringer & Sons, Inc. store location nearest you.

    The Benefits of Choosing Energy-Efficient Appliances

    Last updated 18 days ago

    Are you looking for ways to live a greener lifestyle? If the appliances in your Brooklyn, Manhattan, or Long Island home are not energy-efficient, it may be time for you to upgrade.

    With energy-efficient appliances in your home, you can:

    Help the Environment

    The most intuitive and well-advertised benefit of energy-efficient appliances is that they use less energy and fewer natural resources than their standard or conventional counterparts. Even though the overall impact that your switch to energy-efficient appliances has on the environment may be small, it is still measurable. It is a change that you can feel good about, and it is part of a growing trend with the capacity to make a huge impact.

    Save Money

    Since running them requires less electricity, gas, and water, energy-efficient appliances cost less to operate than other appliances. This leads to lower electricity bills. Some energy-efficient appliances also qualify for tax credits, which can reduce their initial purchasing cost.

    Enjoy Greater At-Home Comfort

    Since energy-efficient appliances use less energy and cost less to operate, their use is easier to justify. This means that you can experience greater comfort in your home during those muggy New York summers and sometimes brutally cold winters by running your air conditioner or heater without regret.

    Help Boost the Economy

    According to the Alliance to Save Energy, energy-efficient appliances, high-quality insulation, and eco-friendly design yield $500 billion in annual energy savings nationwide. The trend toward energy efficiency has spiked investment in research and development in sustainable appliances and building materials. This creates jobs. Everybody wins.

    Stay ahead of the pack by updating your aging, energy guzzling appliances with refrigerators, washing machines, and dishwashers that will help reduce your carbon footprint.
