In many cases, when an appliance requires fixing, homeowners will quickly assume that they need to replace it. That’s why they panic. But before you go shopping for a new one, ask our technician first if it’s broken. Some homeowners forgot to plug in their appliances. It’s a common issue. You may think that it sounds silly. Unfortunately, it happens all the time. Hence, before you deduce that it’s broken, make sure that it’s plugged in first. If it is and you have checked the circuit breakers and electric box and they’re functioning, then call our technician. There can be plenty of reasons your appliance isn’t working.
To Repair or to Replace
Repair is the more affordable option here. However, you might wonder if it’s worth repairing. Although our appliance repair service is considered the most affordable in LA, you must still evaluate whether or not it’s worthy to be repaired. When it comes to this matter, you have to apply the 50% rule. If the broken appliance is your refrigerator, you should know that the average lifespan is only 13 years old. Now, if yours is already 8 years old, it’s more than 50% through its lifespan. If the cost of repairing it would be more than 50% of the price of a new refrigerator, then you might just want to replace it. Then again, if you come to us, we offer affordable rates for all repairs. However, if your appliance is too old, we might still recommend replacing it. Our technician will assess it first. He’ll give you an estimate on how much it’ll cost you to repair it so you’ll be the one to decide whether or not a repair is the right option.
Extending Its Life
Any appliance has a lifespan. It can end. However, there are things you can do to extend its life. Even if the refrigerator’s lifespan is 13 years, you can still lengthen your fridge by maintaining it properly. Make sure that the unit’s condenser coils are clean and without any dust. During the maintenance service, our technician will perform the necessary procedures to ensure that it’s in tip-top shape.
