Raleigh Old TV Disposal

Tis the season for a new TV. Every year the deals for brand new televisions sets get better and better. Don’t worry if you missed out on the Black Friday door busters. You might be surprised to discover that those very same deals can be yours without camping out on the sidewalk. If this will be your first journey into the wonderful world of HDTV you’ll want to take note of a few things to be on the lookout for.

HDTV stands for High Definition Television. It refers to the picture and sound quality that is going to be delivered to you in this digital age we’re living in. The minimum quality of HDTV to look for is one that has 1280 x 720 pixels. A pixel is a point of light. The more points of light, the sharper the picture. You also want to check the plug-in ports. This is where you’ll be hooking up your DVD and/or Blu-Ray player. The best option is a HDMI connection. This is a simple plug in utilizing a special cable running between the machines and it will afford you the highest quality picture and sound for your playback. Most new HDTVs come with this kind of port as standard but it’s always good to double check.

You’re also going to discover that “slim is in” when it comes to the new design of TVs. Gone are those old tube types. In fact, you might not even be able to find them in the stores! Instead, you can treat your new TV like a painting and hang it on the wall. If you prefer there are plenty of stylish stand options for the TV as well. Your new HDTV might also have to be adjusted for your picture quality preference. There are different settings that adjust the color and brightness depending on the type of program you’re watching. There might be a setting for sports, cinema or natural viewing. Try them all out to see which is going to be the perfect fit. And as long as you’re going HDTV you might as well kick in for surround sound, too! There are plenty of “Home Theater in a Box” type of systems that let you plug and play with very little set up hassle. You’re going to need some external speakers but they should all be part of that kit.

Before you take delivery on that new TV you want to make sure you clear the space by getting rid of the old box. A TV is not something you can sit outside on the curb.

Raleigh Appliance Disposal

You’re favorite shopping partner this holiday season could be a smart phone app. There are dozens of scanner apps that let you wander into a nearby Raleigh store and take a picture of a product’s UPC bar code. The app then shows you if you can get that item at a better price somewhere else. What’s great is that armed with that information, you might be able to convince the store to sell you the item at the discount price. Chances are you’ll get the deal because they want to keep you in the store. This would make you a very smart shopper indeed.

Having an app like that is great but you should also do some other research in advance of shopping especially when you’re looking for big ticket items like major kitchen appliances. One of the most common things that folks forget to do is measure the space. If you’ve got custom cabinets where a fridge slides in for a perfect fit then you want to make sure your new fridge won’t be oversized. That holds true for stoves, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers. Measure twice just to make sure.

You should consider the life of the new appliance you’re getting in terms of how long you’ll be using it. Typically, something like a fridge or stove could last five years and beyond. That’s why you should treat yourself to buy something with a few more bells and whistles. Why scrimp when you can get exactly what you want? And make sure whatever item you get that it will be EnergyStar rated. This will insure your appliance is energy efficient. With a new refrigerator this matters a lot because that’s the single item in your home which uses up the most energy. An EnergyStar ice box can bring your electric bills down significantly.

After picking the perfect new appliance, you’re going to need to get rid of that old one. If you’re not donating it then chances are it’s destined for the trash heap but you just can’t toss it out the door and be done with it.  Instead you should consider hiring Junk King Raleigh for the pickup and removal of any oversized item like a stove, fridge or dishwasher. Junk King Raleigh has the man power and truck space to cart off any large item. You don’t have to hire them for a single pickup. After they load up your old fridge, they can also help you get rid of anything else you want tossed out. This is a golden opportunity to clear out the spare room or clean out the garage to your car can park indoors again. Junk King is fast and affordable and they’re just a phone call away!
