You want your cooking space to not only have a consistent and pleasant aesthetic, but you also want to make sure all of your appliances are functioning as efficiently as possible. Many of our customers here at Happys Appliances Outlet ask us if they should buy all of their appliances from the same manufacturer in order to achieve that consistent aesthetic, which is why we decided to write this blog to help you decide whether to stick with one brand or purchase from multiple brands.

Best Back to School College Appliances

If you’re reading this article, you likely have a child heading off to college or are a student heading off to college yourself. This can be an anxiety-inducing process, but as long as you have all your basic appliance needs squared away, it’s usually a breeze! Here are a few of the must-have appliances for college living that we sell here at Happys Appliances Outlet.

Whirlpool Laundry Center
These days, it’s fairly common to find college apartments that are not equipped with a washer and dryer, usually because there’s not enough space. If you’re going to be responsible for your own laundry appliances, we highly recommend looking into a Whirlpool stackable laundry center. These units will save you both space and money, as we’ve got them for $725 (almost exactly 50% off the MSRP!) If you prefer to do your laundry at home rather than a laundromat, these make for a very convenient and affordable option.

Electrolux Beverage Cooler
While they are similar to the mini refrigerators that we sell (which also make for an excellent college appliance to have!), these Electrolux beverage coolers are specifically meant for drinks. We know that college students love to party, and having a sleek looking cooler with lots of capacity is surely appealing to many young adults of drinking age. 

Whirlpool Microwave Oven
The last major necessity we recommend buying from us is a counter top microwave. College students are always on the go, so having a way to quickly prepare meals is something you’re definitely going to want. While you could also opt for an over-the-stove microwave, you would likely need your landlord’s approval to install one. All you have to do with these is place them on your counter and plug them in, which makes it easy to take home with you when you move out as well. Countertop microwaves are also more price-friendly than over-the-ranges. We highly recommend buying a Whirlpool unit, as they are a highly trusted brand with low prices.

The Benefits of Heat-Pump Water Heaters

The cheapest method to heat your home with a water heater is with a natural gas tank, but that’s not always an option.

Fortunately, there’s a new style of water heater that will help you save money on your electricity bill. They’re called Heat-Pump water heaters, and according to pilot studies they have been performing excellently since being introduced to the market.
