It’s December, and although you can find good prices, not everything is going to be a good deal. Online shoppers will spend more money this month than any other. With Black Friday and the start of the holiday shopping season, December is a month when you almost can’t avoid shopping. Everyone is getting ready for the holidays and trying to get some great holiday gifts at the same time. The holiday season is different than other months of the year as you need gifts for loved ones, friends, co-workers and people you barely know.
Lowes will have deals all month long on appliances, tools and Christmas decorations. December bargains from manufacturer websites should also have information about when new models will be released. If you have your eye on an older model and a new model is soon to be released, it may be worth the wait in order to buy it at a lower price. View all of Lowes current promotions for December here.
One item I always wait to buy? Wall Calenders and Planners. If you can, wait until late January to purchase calendars and planners. These items won’t be discounted during December, but they will start dropping soon after. Read More…
Thinking about an electric fireplace or stove? For many years, there was no comparison between electric and gas fireplaces. Both were possible substitutes for wood burning fireplaces and stoves, but gas was considered superior for one: designers did not make electric fireplaces look as realistic as gas. Gas fireplaces were originally created to circumvent all the negative attributes of wood burning fireplaces without sacrificing the benefits.
The technology for electric fireplaces has improved a great deal in recent years and does produce a very realistic flame. Installation for the fireplace is so simple it can be done in five minutes. Just unpack the unit and plug it in. To use it, you simply flip a switch or press the button on a remote. Read More…
Lowes 485310 Duraflame Infrared Quartz Portable Electric Whole-Room Heater with Thermostat and Remote. The Lowes model number is 9HM9000-C240. This heater is made exclusively for Lowes by Duraflame, though it is very similar to models at Home Depot, Walmart and Menards. It also should be alternative to consider for the Eden Pure infrared heaters out there. Great little heater that works exactly as stated. If you’re trying to heat an entire house or have a big drafty room to heat, then it’s not right for you. Duraflame has a nice design, heats a room well, and does a better job than most $60-$100 ceramic heaters with the same BTU output.
Infrared quartz heating elements provide plenty of heat to warm up to 1000 sq. ft., and the unit comes fully-assembled so it’s ready to heat out of the box. Concealed casters are already installed allowing you to take the heat with you wherever you go. The remote control allows you to control settings from your chair or sofa. I was really impressed with the heat output. It uses infrared bulbs to heat with and those bulbs have an average lifespan of 50,000 hours. When it hits 40 degrees at night here it has no trouble keeping the temperature up in the 20 x 22, 450 square foot room I have it in. That’s with it set at 72 degrees and my main furnace thermostat is now turned down to 66. I did have an oil radiator heater before this Duraflame heater, but this unit tops all other heaters I have owned. Wish I had tried this one first. I also had a small ceramic heater and it’s nothing compared to this unit. Duraflame puts off a nice warm heat and warms throughout the area. Read More…

GE 7 cu ft Electric Dryer with Reversible Side Swing Door. Lowes Item #395166 and General Electric model # GTDP490EDWS.
We’ve had two older versions of this GE model so I was excited when I saw it go on sale. Delivery guys were amazing, changing out the dryer cord to a 3 prong as my house is older and did not have a 4 prong cord. I needed to replace my dryer quickly and ordered it online Friday night and it was delivered Sunday at 10am! This is a basic dryer, replacing the ancient one I had – great value for the money! I am very pleased!They also reversed the door for me to make it more convienent to use. Dryer works GREAT! Clothes dry in no time. No wrinkles and I can’t hear it running which is great. The only negative to the entire dryer is the quality of the door; it’s not made as well as my old one, but then again, there’s nothing made as good as the old ones from 15 years ago. Other than that I got every feature I could possibly need without spending a fortune. Read More…
Lowes GE 3.9-cu ft Top-Load Washer. Item # 395165. Model # GTWN4250DWS.
3.9-cu ft Top-Load Washer (White) ENERGY STAR
- ENERGY STAR® qualified – meets or exceeds federal guidelines for energy efficiency and provides year-round energy and money savings
- HydroWave® quiet agitator wash system longer, slower travel provides gentle, thorough cleaning
- Rotary electronic controls with cycle status lights provide accurate cycle times
- 16 wash cycles handle various fabrics and soils
- PreciseFill with the option of 5 water level selections will automatically measure the load size and add just the right amount of water
Front load washers are more energy efficient than top load washers. However, their initial purchase price is significantly higher, and they have a shorter life expectancy than top load washers. Top load washers are relatively more popular in the U.S. while front load washers have become more popular in Europe. Top load washers also have shorter wash cycles than front loaders. This is because front load washers use less detergent and water and to clean more effectively, they usually take somewhat longer (20-110 minutes, depending on the size of the load) to wash a load. Front loaders are also equipped with computer controlled sensors which if set correctly can easily adapt the wash cycle to the needs of each load. Read More…
