Shopping for a major appliance can be a bit overwhelming as there are so many considerations to take into account. How do you remove and disconnect your old appliance? How do you setup and install your new appliance? How do you even know your new appliance is going to fit? Rather than breaking a sweat trying to figure it all out by yourself, let Future Shop do all the work for you! Our professional installers are always happy to give you a hand and make this process as stress-free as possible. To ensure you’re in the know of what our installation services entail and how to prepare for it, here’s a brief guide to show you the way.



Kitchen Appliances: Cool Technology For The Heart of Your Home

Your kitchen is the heart of your home, so give it (and your family) some love with major appliances that enhance your lifestyle. Take a look at your current appliances, then compare them with the products available on the market today and decide whether or not it’s time to upgrade. With brands like Whirlpool, Samsung, LG, KitchenAid, Frigidaire, GE, Bosch, Danby, MyFine, Haier, Air King, Panasonic, and Sunbeam to choose from, it’ll be easy to find a perfect new addition to your kitchen.


Top-freezer refrigerators are the most common type of fridge, and they generally offer the most storage for their size. Bottom-freezer fridges keep the most commonly-used foods conveniently near eye level, so less stooping and bending is required. Side-by-side refrigerators keep the freezer on one side and the fresh food compartment on the other, and these narrow doors can fit better into tighter spaces. The French door style fridges combine the benefits of side-by-side with bottom-freezer designs, allowing you to open only part of the fridge to get your food and saving you energy in the long run.

Bar Fridges and Wine Coolers

Entertaining at a dinner party, storing a wine collection, or having a cold one on hand during the big game – bar fridges and wine coolers can make a very useful addition to your home. Bar fridges are small enough to fit into your den, so you can have fresh drinks and snacks on hand without making a trip to the kitchen. For wine collectors a wine cooler is crucial for storing, protecting, and displaying your valuable collection.


If you like to get your food in bulk and need to store it over long periods of time, a freezer can be a godsend. Chest freezers are usually smaller and can fit into tighter areas of your home, while an upright freezer basically looks like a full-size refrigerator and stores a lot more.

Ranges and Ovens

The variety of cooking appliances is almost as wide as the ways you can cook with them. Your kitchen might work best with either a gas or electric standalone range, or perhaps your décor fits better with a space-saving cooktop stove. Electric wall ovens are useful for people who like to bake frequently, and a range hood is a great way to reduce unwanted odors and increase kitchen ventilation. 


Think you already know everything there is to know about microwaves? You might be surprised when you look at some of the newer models on the market. Aside from different capacities and power levels, some microwaves are capable of convection cooking, which blows superheated air around your food, cooking it more quickly and evenly. An over-the-range microwave is a great way to save some counter space, or you can add a trim kit to your current microwave and position it into the wall of your kitchen. 


Future Shop carries a wide selection of built-in dishwashers featuring state-of-the-art technology to get your dishes, cookware, and cutlery cleaner than ever before. You can even get a portable dishwasher that’s mounted on wheels so you can maneuver it to different areas of your kitchen.
