As a certified appliance company in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, Rosedale Service knows all about home appliances, and because we want our customers to purchase appliances in the best way possible depending on their taste, we’ve prepared a short list outlining things to consider when purchasing major home appliances. Be sure to get in touch with us if you have any questions.



First of all, you need to determine the size of the refrigerator you are going to purchase. Be sure to take the measurements of the spot where you want to place your fridge, or you might be in for a nasty surprise on delivery day. Keep in mind that the size of your household will matter too. A family of 6 does not have the same needs as a family of 2. If space is an issue, be sure to get a combined refrigerator and freezer to save space.  You first need to think about the size of the unit you want, but also that will fit in the kitchen.



When it comes to stoves, you need to figure out if you want an electric stove, a gas stove or an induction stove. Every one of them has advantages and setbacks. You also need to figure out if you want an oven equipped with it or if a simple cooktop will suffice. If you don’t cook a lot of dishes in the oven, this might be an interesting option, because an oven requires a lot of cleaning.



A dishwasher is a very useful appliance, especially if you have a large household. Plates are bound to stack pretty quickly in the sink, which is an annoying situation to say the least. However, you need to consider the energy costs and go with an Energy Star certified, because this type of appliance will save you money in the long run. Newer models also come equipped with sanitizing options, which can be an interesting option to consider.


These are basic tips, but when you haven’t shopped for appliances in 20 years, it is definitely a great start. If you have any question or are in need of appliance service in Chadds Ford, be sure to get in touch with Rosedale Service today for prompt and affordable service.
