Energy Star refrigerators are more efficient than the standard ones of the past and present. They will cut your energy bills over time. You will not have to sacrifice feratures or style. They come with ice makers, fresh food shelving, and ice makers. I have owned an Energy Star refrigerator for a year now, and I don’t think I could ever live without one. I will list my top 5 favorites, and explain why they would make a good choice.
The Whirlpool Gold 24.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Mount comes in stainless steel and stainless look, and is priced around $1899. It comes with a one year warranty. It contains 5 fresh food shelves, and 2 freezer baskets/bins. Its features include: ice maker, water dispenser, water filtration, and dual cooling. It is also frost free. I have this unit. It is a nice size, and can hold all my refrigerated and freezer needs quite nicely. I never hear the icemaker, because it is a very quiet appliance.
The KitchenAid 25.3 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side comes in stainless look and white. It runs between $1399.-$1499. depending on color choice. My in-laws have this model, and it is very roomy. It comes with such features as: ice maker, water dispenser, water filtration, and is frost free. It has 5 door shelves on both sides, and 4 freezer shelves. There as 1 freezer bin.
Next, there is the Maytag 21.7 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side, which comes in black or white. This unit is very reasonably priced at just under $1000, which makes it a great buy for an Energy Star model. It has a one year warranty. It comes with 9 door shelves, 3 freezer shelves, and one freezer bin. Its features include: ice maker, water dispenser, and water filtration. It too is frost free. This model makes a great purchase for the young couple just starting out, due to its affordability.
The Hotpoint 15.5 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer makes an excellent choice for that family needing a second refrigerator, but still wants to go “green.” It is affordably priced at $639, and comes in the color bisque. This is a great deal. Although it is a basic model, it comes with 2 door shelves, and 2 freezer bins.
Finally, there is the KitchenAid 29.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Built-In. It is priced high, at $8499. and comes in stainless steel. This is my favorite unit, because it is loaded with features. It comes with: ice maker, water dispenser, water filtration, dual cooling, and 4 fresh food shelves. It has 4 door shelves, 6 freezer shelves, and 2 freezer baskets. This was made for a big family.
