Should you buy a new fridge this EOFY sales time?
If your current fridge just isn’t meeting your needs – for example, your family has grown and you need more capacity, or possibly the kids have moved out and a smaller fridge might help reduce your electricity costs – then you might like to consider looking out for a bargain at this time of year. When you’re shopping around, it’s important to consider energy efficiency star ratings, as well as fridge capacity, to ensure you’re buying the right fridge to suit your household. There’s plenty of choices, so shop around before you settle on one.
