An appliance is an investment, and while worthwhile, it can be frustrating for many Houston, Texas, residents that feel as though they are constantly replacing their machines. At Royal Appliance Parts & Services, Inc., we know that homeowners want to get the most out of their purchase, so we’ve laid out some important things you need to know about the general lifespan of your appliance, and some tips you can use to help them last as long as possible:
How long can I expect my appliances to last?
While the exact lifespan on your appliance depends on a variety of factors, like the quality of the brand and the amount of maintenance done on the machine, you can expect each one to last for multiple years. Typically, full-size refrigerators will last 25-30 years, while mini-fridges can expect to run for around 9 years. Other kitchen appliances, like your dishwasher and microwave, can be expected to last up to 9 years. Laundry appliances, like your washer and dryer, will typically both last 15-20 years.
What can I do to extend the life of my appliances?
Of course, the best way to extend the lifespan of your appliances is by taking proper care of them. How can this be done? Two key tasks to keep up with are:
- Clean Your Machine
Just like any other household object, dust, debris, and gunk can buildup on your appliances without regular cleanings. Eventually, this buildup will cause your appliance to worker harder in order to perform its intended task. This not only can cause problems with the way your machine runs, it also can dramatically decrease its lifespan. Make sure to set aside time for a regular cleaning on all of your appliances. Typically, care instructions will be outlined in the instruction manual. Keep in mind that, if you are using a soap and water combination, to ensure the machine is not plugged in and that no water gets onto any electrical components.
- Schedule Regular Inspections
Make sure that you have your appliances inspected and serviced by a professional appliance repair company. This allows any small issues that could cause problems and decrease your appliance’s lifespan to be addressed. A technician will be able to help you line out a recommended service schedule based on your appliance.
