Today, we see many high-tech tools installed in our homes including out kitchens. Garbage disposal in the kitchen has also been a product of technological advancements. Although it may not be the fanciest gadget in your kitchen, but it keeps a big role in keeping your kitchen clean from food odors and bacteria.
Only the rich people home’s were known to have garbage disposal systems before, but now almost every home kitchen has one. These garbage disposal systems can help you dispose of leftover chicken bones, peels, coffee grinds, and other garbage stuff. Thus you don’t have to handle too much garbage in your kitchen.
Below are some considerations to make for choosing a garbage disposal unit that is right for your new home or one to replace your old one.
The fist important thing to consider is that the garbage disposal system should be compatible with your plumbing system. The kind of disposer should be known that is compatible with your plumbing and sewer hookups.
Consider the type of garbage disposal unit. The continuous feed model and the batch feed model are the two common types of garbage disposers. As the name suggest the continuous feed runs continuously as long as the switch is turned on. The batch feed model runs only when the unit cover is in place, allowing you to dispose of a limited amount of food at a time. The most common disposal model is the continuous feed model. If you want something that can dispose waste at one time, then you should take this model. Batch feed models have safety features. Unless the disposer cover has been put in place, the device will not run.
The power to run the disposer should also be considered. The motor range for garbage disposal units can run from one fourth horsepower to one horsepower motors. The high powered unit will definitely be more costly than the low powered one. You should think about the size of your household and how much waste you are disposing before deciding on how much power your model needs.
You should also consider the dishwasher drain connection. This is because if there are food particles in the dishwasher it could be ground and flushed out through the disposal unit.
Stainless steel does not corrode and so is the best material for your garbage disposal unit. The best garbage disposer to install in your new home is a very durable one.
Consider also the noise level of your garbage disposer. Extremely loud noises can be made by these garbage disposal units. If you want something that does not make too much noise then you should be willing to spend more. If you don’t mind the noise, then you can save money on a noisy model.
Choosing the right garbage disposal for your home will help it run more efficiently.
