Why Choose to Repair vs. Replace

If you've ever rented an apartment or house before owning property, you know what it's like to call your landlord or apartment manager to fix something. Sometimes it happens quickly and sometimes it takes days, weeks, or even months. Owning a home means that you are responsible for keeping everything working within it, from the lights to the electrical appliances. This can be great because you control your own space and make your own decisions. However, it can also be a heavy obligation on your shoulders.

When something goes wrong, you are responsible for making the repairs or calling a professional to do it. If the item is beyond repair, it is your financial responsibility to pay for a replacement. We have put together some information which can help you decide whether you should repair or replace your faulty appliance.

Repairing Broken & Malfunctioning Appliances

Are you experiencing issues with your appliances not working properly or operating inefficiently? If your appliance is on the newer side, it would not make sense to replace it. Instead, consider hiring a professional to inspect and fix your appliance. Repairs are much more cost-effective than replacing the entire system.

There are many common issues which may be easily fixed by a repair specialist:

  • Appliance making weird noises
  • Appliance operating inefficiently
  • Appliance vents full of dirt or dust

When to Replace Damaged Appliances

If one of your appliances has stopped working completely or you are experiencing issues which cannot be resolved with a quick repair, replacement may be necessary. This is often recommended if your system is more than 10-15 years old or if you are constantly paying for repairs which are adding up. If your appliance simply won't turn on or needs an expensive repair, you may want to call on a professional.
