Introducing Frigidaire OrbitClean Technology


Are you tired of running your dishwasher only to find your dishes still have particles on them, and you have to run them through another cycle? How would you like a dishwasher that gets it right the first time?

Frigidaire dishwashers with OrbitClean offer superior washing performance, thoroughly cleaning everything from the dirtiest pots and pans to your china and stemware. Designed from the inside out, Frigidaire has created an ingenious new wash and rinse process to ensure all your dishes get a clean that‘s right the first time. The new satellite-action system has a lower spray arm that operates independently from the middle and upper spray arms. This inclusive OrbitClean wash arm provides 4x better water coverage. While traditional spray arms distribute water in a simple circular pattern, the new OrbitClean wash arm rotates throughout the tub distributing water to the toughest spots on your dishes to achieve a more thorough clean and rinse.



To see the new OrbitClean technology in action, watch the video below. If you would like to learn more about Frigidaire dishwashers with OrbitClean, stop into any one of our P.C. Richard & Son superstores and one of our expert sales representatives can help you find exactly what you’re looking for!

Happy Earth Day! P.C. Richard & Son Green Initiatives and How You Can Help

Happy Earth Day! Earth Day is a celebration of environmental protection and inspires awareness to our planet’s health every April 22. Did you know that P.C. Richard & Son promotes recycling, energy-saving appliances and green initiatives all year round? Here are a few ways we help protect the environment and some suggestions on great green products for your home.

What We Do
We here at P.C. Richard & Son deal with a lot of plastic, cardboard and Styrofoam with product packaging. We break down all cardboard boxes that hold all orders we receive and separate it from any plastic and Styrofoam that is also included in the packaging. The plastic and Styrofoam is collected and cardboard grouped into bails to be sent to a recycling plant where it is reused and repurposed. Our Deer Park Clearance Center alone sees four to five hundred boxes ever week and a half or so, so that’s tens of thousands of pounds of cardboard, plastic and Styrofoam recycled every year from our 65 locations.

In addition to hauling away all of our packaging material to recycling plants, we often offer free haul aways of your old appliances when you purchase new ones. Haul-awayed appliances are always recycled and are never brought to a landfill. Freon and other harmful substances are disposed of in OSHCA-complaint ways.

We recycle on a much smaller scale, too. Our break rooms have recycling receptacles that are clearly marked for things like aluminum cans and plastic bottles. We also have recycling bins for white paper in our corporate office headquarters.

How You Can Help
Energy Star products are a cost-effective and convenient way to reduce energy use and promote environmental protection. Energy Star is a government-backed program and has also been adopted in countries like Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan and the European Union. We carry many Energy Star-approved appliances and electronics that are worth looking into for your own green initiatives. We offer:

  • Energy Star Refrigerators: Energy Star-qualified refrigerators require about half as much energy s models manufactured before 1993.
  • Energy Star Washers and Dryers: Energy Star washers can save you $550 in operating costs over a regular clothes washer. Less energy and water use means less air pollution from power plants and less water going to waste.
  • Energy Star Air Conditioners: If every room AC sold in the US were Energy Star qualified, it would prevent 1.3 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions- the equivalent emissions of 115,000 cars.
  • Energy Star Dishwashers: Energy Star-qualified dishwashers use at least 41% less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption and can save you more than $30 a year in utility costs.
  • Energy Star HDTVs: There are 275 million TVs currently in use in the US, consuming over 50 billion kilowatts of energy each year, That’s 4% of all household’s electricity use! This is enough electricity to power all the homes in New York State for an entire year. Energy Star-qualified TVs use about 30% less energy than standard units.
  • And more! Check out our Energy Star Products page.

These products will pay for themselves over time with the minimal energy they use, and Mother Nature will be protected! This Earth Day, please look into planet-protecting green initiatives and consider Energy Star products. For more information on Earth Day, visit the Earth Day Network website.

Must-Haves for Apartment Dwellers: Portable Appliances

Do you use portable appliances? When you’re renting an apartment, portable appliances can be your best friend. They don’t take up much space, use few resources, can be moved from room to room, and are easy to store. Plus, they more than pay for themselves in time you can save by using them!

Here is a list of portable appliances available at P.C. Richard:

Portable Air Conditioners
Portable A/Cs are convenient because they can be transferred from one room to another and do not require any permanent installation. A venting outlet is required to let the exhaust hose out of the room to let out hot air, but most portable ACs come with a window venting kit that is easy to set up and transfer around. These A/Cs are usually vented through a window, wall or drop ceiling. You can shop for portable air conditioners on our site to see what is currently available.

Portable Washing Machines
A big issue with apartment renters is the usual lack of a washer and dryer in their unit/complex, and who wants to spend hours in a laundromat? A portable washing machine can finally save you from wearing the last torn t-shirt you managed to find to postpone going to clean your clothes. These washers are quiet, don’t take up a lot of space, and use very little water. They’re easy to set up and take down, too! Just plug them into the wall, hook it up to the sink, and you’re good to go. We have a few portable washers available on our website, and they all have excellent reviews!

Portable Dryers
Portable clothes dryers work exactly like their larger counterparts. Most have multiple cycle and heat choices and require 115 to 240 volts depending on the model. Setup is similar to a portable air conditioner in that they need a vent and usually come with a vent plate to mount on your window. We have a few portable dryers available that list the voltage requirements and what cycles they include.

Portable Dishwashers
For many, not having a dishwasher means piles of dirty dishes in the sink that you wash as you need them. Like a portable washing machine, portable dishwashers hook right up to your sink with a garden hose-like connection. It’s a lot easier to load up a small appliance with dishes than it is to wash them all by hand! Our portable dishwasher page is located here.
