•    The materials they are made of: many times, garbage disposals have to be repaired because the inside or some pieces get corroded after being exposed to food and water for a long period of time. If you would like to reduce the costs of repairs, you might consider acquiring a garbage disposal made of stainless steel parts, which resist corrosion and can last much longer than disposals fabricated with other materials;
•    The level of noise they produce: Garbage disposals can get quite noisy, however the most modern ones have been projected to reduce the noise. A lot of the latest garbage disposals are built with noise-dampening materials which reduce the noise in a great way. Be prepared, if you choose such a garbage disposal for your home in London, to invest an extra amount of money as they tend to be more expensive.
