Does repairing appliances make good economic sense?
Absolutely! Repairing appliances is typically more cost-effective than replacing them. Consider the high price of a new stove, washer, dryer or refrigerator, and compare it to the expense of a typical repair job. Having your appliance repaired is the most economical and more environmentally friendly choice.
How much does appliance repair cost?
The cost of repairing an appliance varies—J&B Appliance charges a flat-rate $125 service fee, but additional costs may be incurred, depending on the required parts.
Is it worth hiring an appliance repair technician?
Yes. There are a number of reasons that hiring an appliance repair technician is a better choice than attempting to repair or replace a broken appliance yourself—foremost, to keep your warranty intact, and to keep yourself safe.
DIY appliance repairs may void some warranties, and repairing appliances means potentially exposing oneself to heat, gas and electricity, in addition to lifting heavy loads. Furthermore, a skilled appliance repair technician will already have the necessary tools on hand. Buying tools you may never use again is costly and inconvenient.
Finally, a qualified technician is well-versed in appliance repair, able to accurately assess and diagnose a faulty appliance, and provide a lasting solution that saves you time and money.
Is it worth repairing a stove?
In the majority of cases, repairing a stove, oven or range is worth it. Why? Many common problems can be fixed quickly, at a cost significantly lower than purchasing and installing a new unit. Additionally, disposing of a broken stove, oven or range creates a larger environmental burden than repairing it.
If your stove performed satisfactorily and is less than 10 to 15 years old, we almost always recommend repairing it.
Is it worth repairing a 6-year old refrigerator?
Similar to stoves, refrigerators have a surprisingly long lifespan, often between 10 and 20 years.
Repairing them is usually the least costly option. That said, not all fridges are made equal, and some will develop problems sooner than others. Additionally, newer fridges may be significantly more energy-efficient, which is something to consider if yours is over a decade old and showing its age.
