With all the commotion in our daily lives, finding some peace and quiet is an essential part of relaxation. The hustle and bustle can be overwhelming and should only make up a small fraction of our lives. Reducing noise pollution in our homes during relaxation time can be done simply with the right guidance. It can be as simple as turning down the volume on the TV or having Library Quiet appliances.
There’s no doubt that there are several factors that go into making a purchase – especially when it comes to selecting a new appliance for your dream kitchen. Whether it’s a new refrigerator, slide-in range, or a new dishwasher, there are a few things that should always be on your list when appliance shopping. The most important factor to consider is your lifestyle and what you are looking to get out of the appliance. If peace and quiet are your top priorities, you should invest in appliances that complement your lifestyle and don’t contribute much to noise pollution.
Today we will tackle some of the hard-pressing questions surrounding quiet dishwashers so you can make informed decisions when appliance shopping.
A quiet dishwasher provides peace of mind in the kitchen that enables consumers to concentrate on other tasks in the kitchen, and even elsewhere around the house. For those who benefit from a library-like environment when focused on a task, a quiet dishwasher can make a significant impact.
The noise coming from your dishwasher doesn’t clean dishes, so the question is, “What is the benefit of quiet?” You should be able to choose what you listen to. Even if you have the liveliest of families, your home is still your sanctuary. Just because we accumulate helpful machines and appliances to improve our living experience doesn’t mean your home should sound like a factory. Heating, air conditioning, refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, fans, etc. all contribute to the noise pollution in your home. It’s your sanctuary. Listen to family, music, television, movies – not appliances.
What are the potential trade-offs if you choose a quiet dishwasher?
There should be none. A well-built dishwasher like the Sharp SDW6767HS is a quiet 45dBA because it is fortified and insulated. It is a matter of soundproofing, not sacrificing performance, power, or speed.
Does having a quiet dishwasher impact cycle speed?
We can’t speak for every dishwasher in the world, but Sharp dishwashers are quiet because they are well-built, and insulated which contributes to the soundproofing. Sharp dishwashers don’t have a dedicated “quiet” cycle to establish the dBA. Our noise levels are measured using the Auto cycle.
Does the noise level of the dishwasher impact the price?
Noise level is sometimes used by appliance retailers to bump prices up, but it’s important for consumers to understand and be aware of the nuances of noise levels. Anything below 52dBA is already considered very quiet for dishwashers. If you are looking at a 45dBA dishwasher that does everything you want, think long and hard before paying extra for a 40dBA model. Most people wouldn’t notice a 5dBA difference, so be careful you are not overpaying for this feature.
While you will not see a difference in performance, power, or speed, choosing a quiet dishwasher can make all the difference in your home. Focus on the things that matter to you, not the noise coming from your appliances.
