What appliances have you had repaired lately? As of right now, my refrigerator is on the fritz, and it’s not the first time. When I first purchased my condo, it wasn’t maintaining the right temperature. However, this is when I was closing on the condo, so when this was noticed during the inspection, I requested that the sellers fix the refrigerator prior to the closing. They did, and that was three years ago.
Since the refrigerator was already used and quite old when I purchased the condo, I figure three more years use out of it was a good deal. In other words, this is one of those times where I’ll likely just end up buying another refrigerator. Don’t think I’m not tempted to call a repairman though because a new refrigerator isn’t exactly cheap. Have you been tempted to call a Toronto appliance repair company lately?
Whether you make a quick appliance repair yourself or call a professional appliance repair company in Toronto, you’re going to have to think about those times when appliances act up. You’re going to run into this problem on average at least a couple times a year, and you don’t wan to be buying new appliances every time it happens. It’s important as a homeowner to know when an appliance repair is necessary and when it’s time to purchase a new appliance.
Of course you don’t have to purchase new appliances each time, but they are going to be the most energy efficient. Used ones might cost less, but they won’t last as long. Additionally, they are going to need to be repaired more often.
Let me give you another example of a specific situation. My mom just recently purchased a refrigerator after having her previous one repaired a few times, not just once. The repair cost wasn’t too bad for each instance, and the refrigerator lasted 15 years. You need to know the life expectancy of your appliances, too.
She also has a washing machine that is acting up. So far, it hasn’t been in need of repair, yet she has to monitor it constantly to make sure it’s working right. She knows it’s lasted about as long as it’s going to last, so she chooses to keep using it as long as it works without needing to be repaired. She nurses it so she doesn’t have to go out and buy a new one.
