Are you like most homeowners, completely unaware of the average appliance life expectancy of each product you own? What happens when your dishwasher goes out? Is it in need of a simple repair or has it lived well past its best by date? It’s hard to know if it’s time to invest in a new appliance or ante up for the repair unless you know what you should expect from each appliance.
Being a homeowner comes with some expected costs which includes maintenance, repair, and replacement of household appliances. When you know how long you can expect your appliance to last you are better able to budget for these costs so that you will never be hit with an unexpected expense. In order to ensure you can make the most of your appliance life expectancy, it’s important you keep up on the cleaning and routine maintenance that each manufacturer suggests. This will keep the appliance running smoothly and hopefully stave off any repairs that can easily be prevented.
