There are several factors that typically come into play when determining if you need new laundry appliances. Lifestyle changes, frequency of repairs for your current appliances and remodeling jobs can all play a significant part in determining whether or not it’s time to make the switch to new appliances.
- For young couples, their smaller washer and dryer might have been sufficient for just two. However, when couples decide to start a family they often realize they need both a new washer and dryer. Larger appliances, coupled with the new energy-efficient technologies, are great for young families. Conversely, seniors might want to find appliances that are more ergonomically friendly. Bending and stooping become more difficult with advancing age, therefore a back-friendly, top-loading washing machine has more appeal than a front-loading washing machine which requires individuals to stoop in order to load and remove clothing.
- Almost every breakdown that occurs with a washer or dryer can be fixed. The issue is how much will the repair cost and how frequently are breakdowns occurring. After two or three repair visits within 6 or 9 months, most people are ready to abandon their old appliances in favor of new ones. Particularly if the appliances are reaching the advanced age of 10-15 years, it might be more cost-efficient to buy new appliances rather than continuing to spend money on costly repairs.
- Lastly, some people decide to buy new appliances because it just makes sense to incorporate a new laundry pair into their remodeling job. If an older couple wants to have a first floor laundry area instead of trekking up and down basement stairs to use their old washer and dryer, they might decide to buy appliances that are more suitable for a smaller space. Others have expanded their laundry area and want to buy larger appliances and dispose of their smaller stackable unit.
The good news is that there is a washer and dryer made for almost every type of lifestyle circumstance. If your current washer and dryer simply are not working for your budget and lifestyle anymore, there is something available more uniquely tailored for your needs.
