Buying a Fridge on Curacao

18 juli 2020

The refrigerator is indispensable in the kitchen on Curacao! It is therefore important to purchase one that perfectly suits your needs. There are a number of points to consider when buying a new refrigerator. Ask yourself the following questions to make a good choice:
 
110 OR 220 VOLTS?
 
On Curacao people use 110 and 220 volts. In the somewhat older homes it sometimes happens that there is only 110 volts present, but in general most houses are equipped with 110 and 220 volts, so check in advance what applies to you
 
WHERE WILL THE FRIDGE be IN THE KITCHEN?
 
To begin, you need to determine where it will be placed. Is it just a replacement for the old one or is the whole kitchen getting a new layout? And if you choose a different place, will the space still be easily accessible? These are all things to take into account.
 
HOW LARGE SHOULD / CAN THE FRIDGE BE?
 
If you know exactly where it should be, you can measure the space. These sizes are of course very important. It would be a shame if the new refrigerator is too big and does not fit in the kitchen. Don’t just think about the width, but also the height. Try to make the best use of space!
 
DO I WANT A DETACHED OR BUILT-IN?
 
A built-in refrigerator goes completely into the kitchen and ensures a quiet whole. Often the same front is used for this as on the other kitchen cabinets. With a detached you can make a statement. There are very cool designs available! Both options have advantages and disadvantages. So the choice is entirely up to you.
 
WHICH REFRIGERATOR DO I LIKE?
There is not one type of refrigerator. There are many different models available. For example, you can choose an American fridge with a separate door for the fridge and freezer, a compact table model for the small kitchens or a classic fridge. When in doubt, it is best to ask for advice at a good store, showroom.
 
HOW ENERGY EFFICIENT SHOULD THE FRIDGE BE?
 
Old refrigerators can consume a lot of energy and make noise. This is not nice for your wallet, but also very bad for the environment. Therefore, when buying a new one, also pay attention to the energy label. The most economical devices have the energy label A +++. You can also pay attention to the power consumption in kWh.
 
WHAT IS THE BUDGET?
 
After determining the model, the size and the desired energy label, you can start thinking about the budget. Now you can figure out exactly how much your perfect fridge will cost. Does the price scare you quite a bit? Then you should consider which points are really necessary for you or wait a while for a good offer. We do recommend investing in a quality and economical refrigerator.
