Hire & Rental Appliances for Christmas

Are you ready for Christmas? Got all those last minute pressies and done your big Christmas shop? Some people might be feeling the need for more food (and drinks) storage space right now. Actually that's easily fixed via fridge hire but there are a few other ways we can help you this Christmas. Such as .... you could rent a drinks fridge or a second fridge for all your parties, hire an LCD or plasma TV and a PS3 or Nintendo Wii gaming console to keep the "kids" entertained (not all of us are lucky enough to be getting one for Christmas - so hiring is certainly an option!), rent to buy that new fridge, television or laptop computer ... there are a few ideas to get you thinking ... it's not too late for delivery before Christmas.

Seasons greetings from all of us at Home Appliance Rentals!
May 2010 bring everything you hope for.
Enjoy yourself and stay safe.

Why Rent a Washing Machine

Renting has a great deal of benefits that people often over look, generally because they are not aware of what is available and how it works. These are two great examples of how renting a washing machine can work for you.

Lets take Sam and Julie, they have recently set up house for the first time, they have paid the bond, first months rent and all the cost to set up the utilities. They manage to get a few essentials from friends and family however they are not able to find a washing machine. They could buy a new one, yet they have just used all their money getting into the new place, another option is to buy one second hand for a few hundred dollars, this may last or may cost them even more money.

Another option is to rent a washing machine, they could rent a washing machine from Home Appliance Rentals for less than a cup of coffee per day, it would be delivered and installed for free and better still if anything went wrong with the washing machine, Home Appliance Rentals would fix it or replace it at no charge.

That way Sam and Julie could move on with there lives and not have to worry about where to get the money from to buy such a large appliance like a washing machine as renting makes it so much easier.

Then we have Amanda and Simon, they are both busy people working long hours trying to get ahead. They have moved into a new home and are sticking to a budget, all of a sudden the washing machine blows up. They could buy a new one yet the budget does not allow for such expenses even for emergencies, another option is to use the laundry, yet that will cost a lot of money and require them to spend even more time out of home.

Another option would be to rent a washing machine, Home Appliance Rentals could rent them one for a couple of dollars per week and deliver and install it for free. By doing this they would not have to worry about the cost of unplanned repairs if required, Home Appliance Rentals will take care of this as they will fix it or replace it free of charge.

This way Simon and Amanda can get on with there lives and enjoy the new washing machine without breaking their budget or effecting their lifestyle.

As you can see renting a washing machine has a number of advantages for anyone in any circumstance. If you would like to get more details on renting a washing machine contact us at Home Appliance Rentals as we would be more than happy to help you.

Clothes Dryer Service Alert

As part of regular maintenance and care of your clothes dryer, cleaning the lint filter after you have used it is an important habit to get into. Not only will it ensure the dryer works to its optimum at all times, it will reduce the risk of a fire in your home due to an overloaded lint filter.

When your dryer’s lint filter becomes plugged or blocked, it limits the ability of the dryer to exhaust hot air. This can cause the dryer to become over heated and increases the risk of a fire.

Most dryers are fitted with a overload switch however this should not be relied upon, as a clogged lint filter will also result in increased power usage due to the longer period of time it will take to dry your clothes.

The best approach is to carry out preventative action by ensuring the dryer filter is cleaned after ever use of the dryer which will allow the hot air can exhaust for the clothes dryer unrestricted.

Damaged dryer lint filters should be replaced, so if it has a hole in it or is just worn out, purchase a new clothes dryer filter from Mr Appliance.

Frost Free & Cyclic Defrost Refrigerators

'Frost Free' is the latest technology for fridges, what it means is that the refrigerator or fridge will maintain a constant temperature in the freezer compartment and this ensures that the freezer will not build up to with ice.

'Cyclic Defrost' refrigerators are older technology, they do not have a regulated temperature control, therefore frost builds up in the freezer section. They also lack the ability to defrost themselves in these situations. With the build up of ice in the freezer, ice will build up in the freezer section of the fridge.

When this occurs in the Fridge Freezer section you then have to defrost the freezer manually every couple of months. This has disadvantages, as the ice builds up in the freezer it decreases the freezer compartment capacity meaning less storage space.

Refrigerator Power Usage

The ratings of the newer fridges are 4 star. This standard was introduced several years ago. There are still a large number of fridges in operation that have ahigher power usage however over time they will be replaced.
To ensure the lowest level of poewer is used in the fridge you can follow some basic steps. Only opent the door when you know what it is you require. Never leave the door open, have the temperature adjusted so the products are cool in the fridge no frozen and thisame for the freezer, ice cream should be soft not rock hard..

Refrigerator Installation

It is always a good idea to have at least 50mm gap around your refrigerator. We recommend that before you purchase or hire a fridge that you measure the available space. Then when you contact our customer service representative you can advise them of the dimensions, that way they can be sure to offer only refrigerators that will suit the space available for rent. This space allows for air to circulate around your fridge and ensure continual and trouble free operation.

Safe Fridge Disposal

A lot of people are unsure how to dispose of a fridge. Councils in most cities will collect them if you ask them or we can remove it when we provide you with your new fridge for a small fee. It is critical that when storing an unused fridge outside of your home that you place it with the door against a wall making it impossible to open.
In addition to this if you are placing the fridge on the road side for council collection you must remove the doors. These measures are required as there has been some terrible accidents with children playing in fridges and getting locked in them, resulting in their deaths.
