Most of us have the pleasure of working with modern appliances- they make life so easy! That said, choosing and maintaining appliances can be quite difficult. Why not make life even easier for folks by sharing with them your tips on purchasing, cleaning, and maintaining appliances? As part of this week’s Weekly Topic Inspiration, we’re focusing on non-kitchen appliances (things like washers and dryers, water heaters, lawn mowers, etc.)- later on, we’ll have a whole week dedicated to kitchen appliances.

I have answered the Best Electric Lawn Mower with this hub - http://austinstar.hubpages.com/hub/What … -the-Money
I really enjoy the peace and quiet of mowing days now. The electric mower is so quiet I don't even know when Bob is mowing :-)
A key to saving money is knowing the manufacturer. An example would be whirlpool. Whirlpool price is much higher then say Roper. Both are made by the same company. Why does one cost more then the other? Because Whirlpool as a brand is advertised heavily. Roper however, the exact product, most have never heard of. So you're paying more for the same product to cover the advertising costs.
That's really good to know! You ought to write a Hub on that, screaming. I bet it would be quite useful!
Agree! great to learn this thing. It is really fun to learn things and apply them on our daily lives. My aircon is going to be 4 years old now without any defects. I just call every 6 months for cleaning. And I do not forget the 3 minutes warm up before setting it to a more cooler button.
You are right about branding costs but also know, for example, that a company like Delta will make a faucet (say the model "xyz" and sell it to contractor supply houses and then sell the same model (xyz1) to a Home Depot. The home depot model will be cheaper for 2 reasons...1: They buy in such mass quantity and 2: because where the contractor model will use brass for some parts and have a much more durable finish, the Home Depot model will use nylon and a cheaper finish. To the eye, they look identical, to me, not even close. Much the same for other products and brands.
Honestly I have a gas powered mower but after researching and writing about this topic I am thinking of getting an electric one.
That was FAST! Fantastic Hub! If you end up getting that electric mower, I recommend adding some original photos of it to the Hub, plus a Ratings Capsule! The star rating will show up in search results and give your Hub a boost.
I certainly agree with the information you shared about the differences between gas and electric mowers.
This article is about sharpening your lawn mowers blades. I found out it is actually pretty easy to do and I did not know dull blades rip the grass turning it brown. I will start sharpening my own mower blades from now on.

Wow, this is a good thing to know indeed! I always thought dull blades just meant less effective cutting- not damage! Thanks for making the useful Hub.
Your advice makes a ton of sense. I'm glad I read about sharpening lawn mower blades.
I would like to write on most of these since you've rolled right down my lane with this topic but I don't want to be a hog...I'll be very happy to take the air conditioner parts title though. Thank you again Simone for your help in inspiring new ideas.
Hey, there are plenty of titles available, and not that many Hubbers have been taking them this week, so have at 'em!
Last year my power was out for three LONG days after a wind storm knocked down hundreds and hundreds of trees. It was then that I learned really quickly how much my central air conditioner means to me!
Here is my WTI Hub:
Central Air Conditioning Units: 7 Easy Maintenance Tips
Check it out and see what this pic has to do with air conditioning your home:
Maintenence is key. You pointed out some helpful tips that we can use to keep our air conditioners running efficiently. Oh, by the way, the dog is so adorable.
ktrapp, this Hub is the bees knees. Amazing.
Every kitchen should have a clear sided toaster...I wrote on this appliance because I used to always burn my toast and really wanted a better way to see the bread cooking...
A Clear Sided Toaster: The Best Kitchen Appliance
Here are some good tips on protecting your window air conditioner.

I was surprised to see how much of a difference some of these things can make!
This is my submission for this week. How to Sharpen a Lawn Mower Blade: http://angela-michelle.hubpages.com/t/30a76f
Super helpful, this! I never mow lawns... which is probably a good thing, since I had not known about sharpening the blades until this WTI theme rolled around.
Here are my 2 WTI hubs. I did go ahead and do a second since no one had taken it. Thank you Simone for the work you do to provide us with ideas.

I'm new at this but I wanted to give the weekly topic a try. I wrote about vacuum cleaners.
