Harvey Norman – Free Wall Mount Offer This Weekend

Our sponsors are running a promotion this weekend, offering free wall mounted installation for TV purchases. Wall mounting is not an easy thing to do and to have a professional installer take care of this process, at no charge is a great feature. 

Just remember to check with the store for terms and conditions, and to confirm if its ALL TVs or just selected TVs. They can help you at the store when you talk to them. 

Enjoy the Grand Final(s) this weekend!! 

Buying the right fridge (2023 appliance guide)

The single most important tool for buying the right fridge

A tape measure is the most important tool in buying the right fridge. Measure your space – height, width, depth; note where the power point is and if you want a left or right opening door.

Once you have the measurements, add at least 50mm on each side and 100mm at the top for ventilation (more if you can). Most new fridges have a blank rear (hidden condenser coils), but you must leave room for the power plug and plumbing.

Hint: Some doors open to 90° within the fridge measurements, but many need extra width if you want to open past that. This may affect the cavity width and depth, and doors may need to be clear of the cavity.

Next is delivery access. Measure the front/rear door or elevator door that it will come through, as well as any choke points like hallways, stairs (and stair returns), etc. There is no point in buying a fridge you can’t get inside your home.

We tested out a new hydrosteam vacuum range recently and was amazed by how it worked well. And decided to share that with you. Brad Duence Brand Ambassador Bissell Australia graced us on the show and discussed about Bissell’s latest Hydrosteam Range.  
Earlier in the week we also spoke with Aaron McNamara Head of Product – AV fromSamsung Australia and talked about their massive 98-inch Q80C QLED TV and you should be buying big TVs.  ­
