Properly maintained appliances can last you for years, if not decades! With the technology now built into most modern appliances, the devices not only can save you money but provide you with added benefits over the older, out of date appliances. We at A-Tech Appliance want to keep your appliances running longer, which is why we recommend you following these appliance maintenance tips:
Keep it Clean
The fastest way to shorten the life of an appliance is to let it be dirty. So clean out your oven, remove the lint from your dryer and do what you can to pick up crumbs, dust and debris that may collect. It is a small chore that can save you the big money of replacing your appliance prematurely.
We’ve found that one of the biggest problems people create for themselves comes from overloading their appliances, especially the washer and dryer. Instead of keeping clothing out for a second load, people cram in far more laundry than the appliance can handle. We always recommend smaller loads rather than larger. These are appliance maintenance tips that will extend the life of the device.
If there is an energy saver option on the appliance, use it. First of all, this saves money by cutting down on energy use. Secondly, the less energy, gas, water and other utilities the device uses, the easier it is on the system. This, in turn, extends the life of the device.
At A-Tech Appliance, we want to make sure your appliances last a long time. So follow through with these tips and you’ll extend the life of your investments.
