The difference of one-star can be huge

2-star vs 3-star refrigerator: Which one should you buy?

There is a long list of things to consider when buying a new refrigerator. This includes the colour that will complement your kitchen décor, the feature set, and the star rating to name a few. The latter tells you how efficient your refrigerator is. It may seem like nothing, but a star rating can make a lot of difference. For instance, a 3-star refrigerator will be more expensive to buy than a 2-star, but the latter will use more electricity in the long run. Here’s how to choose between a 2-star and a 3-star refrigerator.

2-star vs 3-star refrigerator: The difference

A 2-star refrigerator consumes around 15% more energy than a 3-star refrigerator, which will reflect on your electricity bill. A 3-star refrigerator is more expensive, but in the long run, it will prove more economical since the electricity bill will be much lower.

Since a refrigerator runs 24×7, one needs to take into account the running costs, and not just the initial price tag. Hence, going for a higher star-rated refrigerator is always the best choice. Not only does it consume less energy, but it also lasts longer.

This makes a 3-star refrigerator a better investment than a 2-star refrigerator. Budget is an important factor to be considered while making a purchase. However, the price difference between the two is almost negligible, and a 3-star refrigerator saves money in the long run by lowering electricity bills.

We hope this blog made your refrigerator-buying decision easier. Remember, when buying a new refrigerator, it is also a good idea to consider buying an extended warranty plan like the Croma ZipCare Protect plans to protect your new appliance against manufacturing defects and for long-term peace-of-mind.
