It is true that in some cases, you may know without a doubt that your old appliances are headed for the landfill and there is no way around it. However, at American Appliance Repair we find that many people get rid of appliances that could have been repaired. Keep reading to find six reasons that your appliance may not need to be replaced at all, then contact your local appliance repairperson.
- It is a Lot Cheaper to Have Your Appliance Repaired Than Replaced
- Today’s Appliances May Be More Than You Expect
- Your Current Appliances May Be Higher Quality Than Those on the Market
- You Don’t Want to Take on the Expense of a New Appliance
- The Appliance May Have Features You Can’t Find Elsewhere
- The Design of the Appliance May Be Important
The first reason is the most obvious: It is so much cheaper to repair an appliance than to have it replaced. Note that there is an equation to be used here. If it is going to cost a significant amount for repairs, and it is already an older unit, then it may make more sense to skip costly repairs and use that money toward a new unit.
If your appliance has been in your possession for a number of years, then you may not realize just how much the cost of appliances have gone up. If you assume that buying a new refrigerator will only cost a few hundred dollars and isn’t worth the cost, you may be surprised to earn that it could actually cost several thousand dollars.
The truth is simple: Appliances aren’t built the way they used to be. While it may seem that repairing doesn’t make sense financially, consider that with an appropriate repair, an older appliance may outlast a brand new appliance. This is because older appliances are often not made as cheaply as today’s appliances are.
Why pay for a new appliance if your old one can simply be repaired and used again? At American Appliance Repair we can help you know what your real options are. We will carefully assess your appliance and if there is a reasonable way to fix it, we will go over the options.
It may be that you love the features you have on your appliance. If those features don’t exist as options on new appliances, or if you cannot afford the type of appliance that has them on today’s appliances, then it may be worth it to keep the older appliance and have it repaired.
It may be that you simply like the design of the appliance. This can be especially true if you have built your entire décor around the refrigerator. In this case, it may be worth it to contact American Appliance Repair at 800-640-9934 to find out if we can have it repaired for you.
