KNOW YOUR APPLIANCE’S LIFE EXPECTANCY
Your household appliances represent a significant investment in your home or business. We understand that appliances can typically add up to thousands of dollarsÂ spent. Appliances don’t just cost money to buy, it can also cost a fair amount of money to run these machinesÂ day after day. Far too often home and business owners forget that just like any other machinery, your appliances need regular inspection and maintenance. Even with proper care, the unfortunate time WILL come when your appliance will not perform when you need it to. In the event that you are experiencing a broken appliance, wether that be a refrigerator, washing machine, dishwasher, etc you will have to make a decision. Â Do you Buy New, or do you replace your broken appliance?Â
At A-Appliance Xperts Inc. we understand the frustration that can come from a malfunctioning appliance. That is why, when you call us, our friendly technicans are happy to go over all of your repair options, and will help you in deciding to go ahead with a repair, or if a replacement is your best option.
A good rule of thumb that we stand by is considering the age of your appliance. Generally, if a repair costs close to the price of a new appliance and the unit is more than ten years old, it might be time to buy new.
