- Appliance repairs cost is much less than new appliance purchases, while adding years of use. Spending a few hundred dollars on appliance repair always beats spending hundreds, if not thousands on new appliances. Let’s say on a new washing machine, if that lower expense also extends the life of your washing machine, dishwasher or refrigerator for additional years then all the better, right?
- Older appliances like washing machines, dishwashers or refrigerators are usually better-made appliances. However this might not be true for maximum energy efficiency appliances in some cases. But the trade-off in a slightly lower efficiency can be more than offset by the quality of the appliance repair parts. Yesterday’s appliances were made with quality metals; today’s appliance parts are often made with cheaper metal composites and plastics. So new appliances are far more prone to breakdowns and paying for new appliance parts over and over is certainly not an efficient use of your time or money.
- Newer appliances often use complicated computer technologies. That is why today’s appliances can often overheat and experience other unexpected problems. (For example, did you know that simply by opening your washer’s door or adjusting its knobs while it’s operating could cause two motors to burn out?) So replacing old reliable appliances before it’s absolutely necessary can introduce a costly old unreliable problem in your home. And repairing complex appliance parts will always cost you more money than it would to fix simpler equipment.
- Motherboards are always at risk. Most consumers don’t realize that today’s more complicated appliance systems are at risk for costly damage even when they are not being used. Especially here in Florida where we have many storms that produce power surges or brown-out’s, these can attack a modern appliance’s computer motherboard, shorting out or eliminating the ability to operate without expensive appliance part replacements.
- Repairing appliances supports the United States of America in more ways than one. Over the past decade or so, more appliance-related jobs have been outsourced overseas. Thousands of American workers have been laid off and neighborhood factories have shut down.
1) Buying new appliances actually rewards corporations for this behavior.
2) A lot of earlier, high-quality appliance parts are still kept in stock by a network of U.S. distributors, many “Mom & Pop” businesses, so ordering these parts can help Americans keep their homes and raise their children.
3) Repairing is a form of recycling, keeping more appliances in our homes and fewer in our landfills and scrap yards.
- Yes, people want new things but is it the best solution? We shouldn’t replace when we can fix. ApplianceQuest remains confident that repair is always the better course of action whenever possible.
