This can depend on the appliance and what is wrong with it. For large appliances, like refrigerators and washing machines, repairs often are a better (and cheaper) alternative than replacement. When you have an older model that begins to give your trouble, considering repairs is still a very viable option. Older appliances are better built and easier to work on should a repair ever come up. Like vehicles, after some time, service, repairs, and replacement of parts are just a part of appliance ownership.
Opting for a repair over a replacement is also the more environmentally friendly option, keeping your appliance out of a landfill when it can be easily salvaged. We provide an honest assessment and let you know when it doesn’t make sense to repair.
