    Keeping Your Refrigerator Clean

    Last updated 23 hours ago

    Your refrigerator works hard every day to keep the foods you love fresh and safe for consumption. Keeping this appliance clean will increase its efficiency and reduce the likelihood of bacteria or mold affecting your food.

    This video offers step-by-step instructions for cleaning your refrigerator. Start by removing all the food items, then clean all the surfaces in your fridge with hot, soapy water and a scrubbing sponge. Dry each surface after washing it to prevent mildew growth inside the appliance.

    How a Sub-Zero Wine Storage System Can Improve Your Wine Cellar

    Last updated 3 days ago

    Do you love enjoying a delicious bottle of wine with family and friends? Wine’s taste can be adversely affected by even small environmental changes over time, diminishing the quality of your investment. Sub-Zero wine storage options, available at AUTCOhome Appliances and Construction Appliance by AUTCOhome, incorporate a variety of features designed to maintain the taste of each bottle so you can enjoy the perfect glass of wine every time.

    Temperature Control

    The ideal storage temperature for red wines is 65 degrees Fahrenheit. This is much cooler than the typical room temperature of 70 degrees, but much warmer than the temperature inside your refrigerator. However, storing your wine at the ideal temperature meets only half the requirements to maintain its taste. In addition to storage at a cooler temperature, wine also needs to be kept at a consistent temperature. Sub-Zero wine storage appliances are designed to minimize temperature variations, keeping your wines at the correct temperature regardless of sunlight and other factors in your home.

    Light Control

    Ultraviolet radiation from sunlight—even indirect sunlight—can prematurely age your wine, affecting its quality. Premature aging affects every aspect of wine, including color, taste, and bouquet. Sub-Zero appliances feature UV-resistant glass with a bronze tint that not only protects your wine from harmful radiation and premature aging, it adds cosmetic appeal to your wine storage solution as well.

    Humidity Control

    Too little or too much humidity can affect the corks in your wine bottles, breaking their seal or causing cork to crumble into the liquid. High humidity can also affect the labels on your bottles, making it difficult to keep inventory. Sub-Zero’s line of wine storage solution regulates internal humidity as well as temperature to keep your bottles at their best, both inside and out.

    A Look at the Most Popular Types of Refrigerators

    Last updated 7 days ago

    Your refrigerator is one of the most important appliances in your kitchen. These appliances typically last 15-20 years before requiring replacement, making your choice of refrigerator an important one for the style and efficiency of your kitchen for years to come. There are many popular styles of refrigerators available, each with features that offer various benefits.

    All Refrigerator

    One of the most cost-effective and energy-efficient refrigerator options is one that does not feature an attached freezer. These appliances can be ideal for your needs if you have limited kitchen space, don’t need to store frozen goods, or prefer to utilize a stand-alone freezer for frozen items. A refrigerator without a freezer offers the greatest storage capacity inside because the appliance’s entire volume is dedicated to refrigeration space.

    Top- and Bottom-Mount Refrigerators

    Top-mount and bottom-mount refrigerators include a refrigerator with a separate freezer section above (top-mount) or below (bottom-mount) the refrigerated space. Although these appliances have more limited space for refrigerated food storage, they put frozen items within easy reach. Top-mount refrigerators use slightly less energy, while bottom-mount refrigerators put more frequently-used foods at eye level by storing frozen items used less often at ground level. Bottom-mount refrigerators often feature larger freezer compartments with drawers or racks for easy storage and access.

    French Door Refrigerator

    French door refrigerators are similar to bottom-mount refrigerators but feature a double door design for easier access to refrigerated goods. The freezer section below is still closed off by a single door. By opening only one of the refrigerator’s double doors, you can reduce the escape of cold air from the interior for superior temperature control. French door refrigerators typically represent the higher end of refrigerator models, offering convenience, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal.
