Tips for Selecting Appliances

Appliance Help for New Homebuyers

Arizona Wholesale Supply is Arizona's Leading Builder Distributor


New homebuyers have to make a lot of choices when selecting all the finishes, and products that go into their dream home. Fortunately, production home builders preselect options and upgrades that are suitable for their homes. Even so, making appliance selections can be very challenging. Here are a few tips in choosing appliances:

  1. Narrow the field. If your builder has a list of models and packages that are available to you, part of your work is already done. Don't waste time looking at brands or models that aren't available for the home you are purchasing. Even If you are building a custom home, there will still be some constraints based on the size of your kitchen, location of gas, water, and electric lines, etc.

  2. Budget and plan accordingly. If it's been a number of years since you purchased major appliances, get prepared for some sticker shock. Today's appliances will save money on energy usage, and still are a very good buy when factoring inflation over the years. However, when you want a built-in refrigerator, combo ovens, and other premium appliances such as wine storage units, built-in warming drawers, steam ovens and coffee makers, you're going well into 5 figures ($XX,XXX.XX).

  3. Consider brands. At Arizona Wholesale Supply, we carry the popular priced major production brands GE, Whirlpool, and Frigidaire (Electrolux). We also are your supplier for upscale brands, such as GE Profile, Electrolux, KitchenAid, and Bosch, as well as a host of luxury brands such as Jenn-Air, Monogram, Viking, SubZero-Wolf, Thermador, Miele and many more. Most production home builders offer selections from only a single brand or two, and even semi-custom builders usually stick with a few preferred brands. For that matter, new home buyers tend to pick most or all their appliances from a single brand that they prefer. It not only narrows choices to products that the buyer is going to be comfortable with, appliance brands tend to have matching handles, knobs, etc.

  4. Work with a professional. Arizona Wholesale Supply consultants have many years experience with home builders, designers, and new home buyers. If your builder or design professional is one of the many that we supply, you can make an appointment at one of our locations to select your appliances.

Arizona Wholesale Supply is a family owned company, based right here in Arizona, and we've been at this for over 70 years.

BUT, very few people know that Arizona Wholesale Supply operates an offsite design studio for one of Arizona's leading homebuilders.

Shopping for appliances, floor coverings, or window treatments

The best way to shop for your dream kitchen

Internet, phone, email, or in person?

Dream Kitchen

Shopping on the internet.

If you're just getting started and are in the information gathering phase, the internet can be an excellent place to begin. There is a need to be cautious, however. First, make sure that you are looking at current data. When information is posted on the internet it stays there until removed. You may be looking at appliance reviews, model numbers and prices that were posted years ago. In addition, there are unscrupulous, fly-by-night operators on-line that will try to suck you in with unbelievable deals. Beware! Independently confirm with a reliable source what you find on the internet from unfamiliar or suspicious sources. If you deal with Arizona Wholesale Supply Company (AWS), you're working with a company that has been in business since 1944. On the Arizona Wholesale Supply website, you can get information about the best quality product lines and brands that are available, at the lowest possible prices. And you can research specific appliance models using the convenient AWS online catalog.

Working by telephone.

If you have a question about availability of a product or need to check dimensions, a phone call is often the quickest and best way to get an answer. If you live far away from a showroom, sometimes a sales associate can walk you through parts of the selection process by using a combination of phone appointments, and emails.

Exchanging emails.

E-mail is now being used extensively to send information back and forth such as: spec sheets, photos, illustrations, drawings, links to material, and anything that needs to be accessed either visually or written out. E-mail is a great tool to share information quickly.

In-person visits.

If you're outfitting your dream kitchen, at some point you'll want to see and touch the product. Appliance and flooring suppliers have upgraded their showrooms over the years, and will welcome your visit. When you get to the point where you need to sit down with a consultant for some professional help, you should call for an appointment. Make a list of all your questions, gather all your clippings, photos, dimensions, and diagrams, and try to provide your sales consultant with the information that she will need to help you choose well.

ENJOY the process. Creating a new kitchen can be an exciting and fulfilling experience – make the most of it. Call the experts at Arizona Wholesale Supply to begin the journey.
