Keystone Homes design studioWith the holidays quickly approaching, now is the time to upgrade the appliances in your Augusta new home. Whether your home is new to you or you’re comfortably settled in, making sure your appliances are in perfect condition to help you prepare scrumptious meals or get your clothes clean is important.

Here are a few tips for helping you through the appliance buying process:

  • It might be time to replace your microwave oven if it makes loud noises during cooking or is taking longer to cook something than it used to. Test it out by heating an eight ounce glass of water for two minutes; if the water is not piping out, it may be time to say hello to a new microwave.
  • If you can’t remember how old your washing machine or dryer are, there’s a good chance they are nearing the end of their life cycle. According to the Department of Energy, a washer usually last about 11 years and a dryer lasts 12. These machines are the second and third biggest energy eaters in your home, so consider upgrading to more energy efficient models.
  • While you may think automatic dishwashers waste tons of energy, they don’t have to. Upgrading to an Energy Star rated dishwasher, like the ones in a Keystone Home, is a smart idea because the annual savings on your utility bill will offset the initial price.

The Keystone Homes Design Studio only uses the best brand name products for outfitting our Augusta new homes. You’ll find a wide selection of appliances from Whirlpool, Rheem and Ruud.
