Repair Investment vs. Purchasing New Appliances for Residents in Naples, Ft Myers, and Charlotte County, FL
With Christmas right around the corner you may be asking yourself is it worth it to fix your current appliance or buy a new one if your appliance is experiencing issues? Here’s some insight to help you decide if it’s in your advantage to purchase a new appliance or bring in professionals, like Diamond Appliance Repair, to give your current appliance some more life.
To keep food from going to waste and safe for consumption you need a refrigerator. You should expect your current refrigerator to last anywhere from 10 to 20 plus years with appropriate maintenance and care. Even on sale, refrigerators range anywhere from $650 to $2,000 and up. If your refrigerator was made in the 1990s, you may save on utility bills by upgrading your fridge, but many problems such as cooling issues, leaking, or a faulty water machine or ice-maker, could be solved for just a few hundred dollars as opposed to spending over $500.
A new dishwasher could run anywhere between $300 to $1,000. It may also come with an installation fee and a disposal fee for your old dishwasher. You may think it’s time to discard your older dishwasher because the dishes aren’t getting clean, the door is malfunctioning, it’s leaking, or you have rusty racks, but these are simple issues your appliance repair technician can take care of so that your dishwasher can continue to provide you with optimal performance.
Washers & Dryers
Who doesn’t want a new washer or dryer? Most will want a matching set, so you guessed it. The price for a new washer and dryer is expensive. Whether your machine isn’t drying, you are experiencing leaking, your machine will not start, it’s making a funny noise, or it has a bad smell, you can trust our appliance repair technicians to properly repair your washer and dryer for much less than purchasing new machines.
Ultimately, unless your appliance is nearing 20 years old, it makes the most financial sense to repair your appliance instead of purchasing a new one.
