Refrigerators are our best home buddies since it aids us in keeping our foods last for weeks or even for months. But did you ever ask yourself when to replace your fridge or should you do some repairs instead?
I got my fridge 14 years ago and after those long years of hard work, I think it’s time for me to let her go. The cause is that I have already sent her to the repair shop twice this year, since her freezer does not produce ice anymore. In that respect are some illustrations that my meat and poultries went bad and there’s nothing I can do than to put them all away in the trash.
I wasted so much money and after a year from her repair, here she comes again with that same old trouble. And my electricity bill has broken up so high since that day she got home from the shop and until today, I still found that same figure. So it’s really time for her to go.
These are the things that we should remember if it’s time for us to let go of our old fridge, consider the age of your fridge, if it’s less than 8 years old, you can still consider repairs but for those fridges that’s more than 15 years, it’s time to supplant them. And also think of the repair cost. If the price of repair takes more than half the cost of a new unit, better have a new unit. It will salvage you money and it can insure you that in that situation, there will be no repairs for the succeeding 5 years. Well, it also depends on how you handle your ref, right?
And lastly, if you got that same old fridge and your electricity bill soars higher than you can ever imagine, got to dump that old folks, baby!
Our fridge is one of the best appliance in our home, we can profit from its performance as long as we take good care of it and as soon as it show some signs of breakdown, better be knowledgeable about when to replace it. Your family’s budget is at stake here.
And then how about you, do you think it’s time to replace your fridge?
