Home Appliances – Cd, DVD Players, Televisions, Camcorders

A home appliance is defined as a machine or a mechanism which accomplishes some routine housekeeping tasks. These tasks include functions such as cooking, food preservation, or cleaning, etc whether in a household, institutional, commercial or industrial setting.

Home appliances are mainly differentiated into the following two types i.e.: Major and small appliances. Major appliances are differentiated from small appliances because they are large, difficult to move, and generally fixed in place to some extent. They are mostly considered fixtures or a part of real estate. Another common characteristic of these major appliances is that they may have substantial electricity requirements. Therefore it is necessary to have special electrical wiring to supply higher current than what the standard electrical outlets can deliver. All these requirements limit their position or placement at home.

Recently with the introduction of the various Energy Labeling rules across the world, the appliances have been forced to become more and more efficient leading to more accurate controllers in order to meet the regulations.

Major appliances may be roughly divided into refrigeration equipment, stoves, washing equipment, and miscellaneous.

Home appliances may be divided into categories called “white goods” and “brown goods” in British English.
