I remember as a child when we got our first electric kettle to replace the one that used to whistle on the hob when it was boiling. That was followed shortly thereafter by the toaster, that popped the toast up when it was done. No more pulling the tray out from under the grill to find the toast on fire! Other things followed like the Sandwich Toaster, the blender and Hallelujah! The microwave. I didn’t realize it at the time, but these small steps forward with each new appliance made life easier. It would be very difficult today to take these things away, we have become used to having them there and now, so many more that help improve our lives. With so many appliances available, which then in this day and age are the ones we really should have in our homes?
The Water Filter
Water is probably the most basic thing we need to survive, yet it can also be our downfall. Pollutants, toxins and contaminants in water can be deadly. For children especially it is essential that they are drinking, clean, pure water. Once installed, a filter provides better tasting and better smelling water by removing the chlorine and bacterial contaminants. Water filters greatly reduce the risk of rectal cancer, colon cancer, and bladder cancer by removing chlorine and chlorine by-products from drinking water. It arrives with the same convenience as turning on the tap, costs less to operate than buying bottled water, in an endless supply, and with bacteria removed, leads to overall greater health.
The Air Purifier
Clean air is essential for all of us, though with the amount of pollutants in our atmosphere, it is becoming increasingly hard to find. No matter how clean our house is, there are still particles of dust and dirt in the air we breathe, which can cause or exaggerate health issues. Air purifiers are great, because they dramatically reduce the particulate matter and the concentration of pollutants. They also get rid of smells and odours, especially helpful if you have a pet or a smoker in the house. It is important to get the right purifier for your home and with the right capacity to deal with the size of your interior. Currently the water and air purifiers may not be the number one selling item on the list of popular home appliances though their popularity is rising quickly.
The important thing when choosing one of these appliances is to make sure we are getting the quality product that we need to do the job properly. There are many household appliance manufacturers, and even more options on where to make the purchases. It can be tempting to use the little store round the corner, hoping for more personal service, and who may also be quite competitively priced. When making important decisions that affect our personal well-being, I prefer to use a company that has as its mission, the objective of improving lives by meeting and exceeding the standards of its many customers and raising the bar on providing the highest possible advances in its product range. Because all appliance companies are not the same and you deserve the best.
