Appliance Life Expectancy

Do you know how long your freezer will last? How many years should you expect your washer and dryer to function properly? To effectively manage your household budget, it helps to know the life expectancy of your appliances. This can help you determine if an appliance can be saved or if its time might be up. The best way to ensure your appliances have a long, healthy life is to perform regular maintenance and have them checked periodically by an appliance repair expert.
