Appliance Repair or Replacement?

To repair or replace your appliance is a question most homeowners ask at some point during ownership. You do not want to waste money on an appliance repair service knowing that you might need a new appliance anyways, but you also do not want to spend money on a brand new appliance. It is a question asked by thousands of people every day. We have put together these helpful tips to help you decide whether to repair or replace.

Reasons to buy a new appliance:

  1. Your appliance is over 10 years old, rusted, too loud, or just plain ugly and embarrassing
  2. You are remodeling your home and investing in new appliances anyways
  3. You don't currently have the appliance you need or you need a bigger appliance (washer, fridget, etc.)
  4. The cost to replace the appliance is more than 1/3 of the cost of a new appliance

Reasons to decide to repair your appliance rather than purchase a new one:

  1. You spent a lot of money on a top of the line appliance and brand name
  2. The cost to repair it is less than the cost of a new one
  3. The appliance was working totally fine before it broke

The best way to determine the cost of repairing your appliance is to have a professional repair person analyze the situation. They will be able to tell you the cost to fix the appliance right there on the spot. If the cost is too expensive then consider buying a new appliance. In addition, you can also find great deals on used appliances.
