When is it Time to Replace Your Refrigerator | A-Tech Appliance

Problems happen from time to time with appliances. Typically, these issues can be repaired by a professional, such as our team at A-Tech Appliance. However, there may come a point where it simply is too costly to continually repair your appliance. With the costs of constantly repairing your refrigerator on top of heightened electrical costs, here are tips to indicate when it might be time to replace your refrigerator.

Extreme Condensation

Does it look like your fridge is sweating up a storm? If so, it means it isn’t cooling properly. Chances are if this is happening you’d be better off replacing it than repairing it.

Food Isn’t Keeping

Have you noticed your food isn’t lasting as long as it used to? Chances are it isn’t because your local supermarket went to a different brand of produce. It is because your fridge simply isn’t working like it should. We can inspect it to see if it is possible to correct the issue, but there is a good chance the time might be right to replace the refrigerator.

Hit the Decade Point

If you can squeeze a decade out of most appliances it is good. A fridge can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years, but as it ages it uses more energy and runs less efficiency. It also is going to break down more frequently. Due to this, once you hit the decade point with the fridge you may be better off going with a new appliance over repairing it.

Knowing when it is time to repair or replace a refrigerator is important as it will save you time and money. At A-Tech Appliance, we are here to give you expert service and recommendations. So, if you have questions regarding your  refridgerator, feel free to contact us at any time.
