Life Expectancy for your Household Appliances
Your appliance is broken. Do you repair it or replace it?
It’s easier to that decision when you know the life expectancy of major appliances. If you’ve bought a moderately-priced appliance that lasted you a while, maybe you feel you got your money’s worth and would rather just get another one. When you invest in a higher-quality appliance from a reputable manufacturer, it’s reasonable to consider repairing the unit to get the full return on your investment.
If you buy a quality household appliance that fails within its expected life cycle, the solution is to repair rather than replace.
Some homeowners buy inexpensive household appliances with the intention to simply upgrade and replace when the appliance gives out. While this may be a cost-saving tactic at the outset, that homeowner will spend more replacing that appliance than had he invested in a quality appliance (and a regular maintenance plan!) in the first place. Not to mention saving the planet from that discarded, broken appliance.
A better choice is to buy quality appliances and establish a good relationship with your local appliance repair company. Appliance Doctor offers maintenance packages to keep all of your appliances in tip-top shape, making sure that you get all the years out of it that you possibly can!

Called in the middle of the day on sunday expecting an answering machine and surprisingly Gail one of the owners answered. Very helpfull over the phone and told me she had the dryer belt i was looking for @ the office but they were closed. She mentioned that she could meet me there and would sell it to me. Any small business owner that is willing to open the door in the day when they are closed for a $20 belt is A ok in my book.

Appliance doctor has always come thru for us. Our oven decided not to heat 3 days before we were hosting a major party between Christmas and New Years. After leaving a telephone message, and entering a request for emergency service, we got a call back the next morning with a promise of a service visit between 10 and 2. Not only did the technician show up before noon, but located the needed part in a warehouse, found someone to go get it, and and was back to install it before the end of the day! What great service.

I love Appliance Doctor! We are in the animal health care industry and go through a TON of laundry, which means we have also gone through a lot of washers and dryers over the years. Appliance Doctor has come to our rescue on many occasions and I appreciate their honesty when it comes to fixing or discarding an appliance. Most recently they helped me with a warranty issue I was having with an appliance, the warranty work was not even their responsibility but that is just the type of service they strive to provide. I appreciate them more than they know!
