“As a Smart Consumer, Here’s What You Need to Know About Appliance Repairs”
We all depend on our appliances. We need them to preserve our food, prepare our food, clean our dishes and laundry, and keep us warm or cool, amongst many other functions. For many of us, we cannot function during a typical day without using our appliances. The unfortunate fact about these machines is they all age. It is only a matter of time before one or more of your appliances will fail or start malfunctioning. When this happens, you’re going to want to fix it immediately.
When an appliance begins to fail, the big question is if you should repair it, or do you need to replace the machine? American Appliance Service can help you make this decision. An appliance repair expert will understand the lifespan of your machines and the costs to repair over replacing.
These are some tips for you to know when it comes to scheduling an appliance repair.
What If It Is An Emergency?
Emergencies can happen when an appliance fails. A dishwasher can start sending significant amounts of water into your kitchen. These are emergencies, and they need attention immediately.
If it is not a dangerous situation, such as a water leak, you can notify emergency repair services. American Appliance offers a two-hour service window and will call you when our technician is on the way.
Non-Emergency Appliance Repairs
When should you call a repair service? If your dryer isn’t drying the way it used to, or if your freezer is no longer keeping your food frozen, you will want to contact an expert to determine the problem. Key warning signs to look for telling you it’s time to call American Appliance:
- The appliance will not turn on if you see higher than average utility bills, and there is no apparent excess use on your part
- If the appliance is not performing correctly, such as dishwasher leaving dirty dishes, clothes dryer taking extra cycles to dry items
Appliance Replacement VS. Repairs
