Weather in your area may not be as good as it was in the late nineties. Severe climate conditions are because of the global warming crisis. Inclement weather can have adverse effects on your health. It also makes your food prone to many bacterial and fungal infections. Scientists believe that food exposed to air can become a home for many bacteria that may cause dysentery, diarrhea, and other illnesses. To keep your food safe and fresh, you should use a refrigerator.

There are two major types of refrigerators available in the markets i.e. single and multi-door. The 1st class is suitable for small kitchens and clinics. They’re cheap. The 2nd type (multi-door) are expensive, and they’re more stylish than single door refrigerators.

Many people believe that refrigerators are power-hungry electronic appliances. Thus, they are afraid to buy them. This is not the fact. Cooling technology has become much better than it used to be before in the early nineties and before the year 2000. When refrigerators were 1st invented, only rich people could have afforded them because the fridges of that era consumed a lot of power.

GL-B205KMLN - Best refrigerators in India 2015

After 2005, many manufacturers started to publish refrigerator ratings so that a user can buy their products without worrying much about electricity bills. BEE provides the score of the best refrigerators. BEE is the abbreviation of the Bureau of energy-efficient. It is a government organization that rates electronic appliances by their electricity consumption. The product with maximum rating will use less power as compared to devices with lower ratings. Power companies charge for every unit of electricity you waste. Thus, choosing a refrigerator brand wisely will help you in saving 1000s of Rupees every year. Indian manufacturers, Godrej, and Videocon have also launched some fridges and BEE has rewarded them with 5-star ratings. This proves that some Indian brands are good.
