In addition to safety and peace of mind, the money you’ll save by ensuring proper maintenance, is worth a planned seasonal check up for all your major home appliances.
Your appliances are expected to function for about 10 years +, and proper maintenance helps them live longer. Not only do unmaintained appliances burn too much energy, but they also burn themselves out faster. For example, your blocked-up dryer works harder and hotter than it’s supposed to, which often leads to early failure.
High energy costs are often tell-tale signs that one or more appliances in your home need maintenance or repair. Over time, wear-and-tear on your appliances is normal and can negatively impact efficiency. Common culprits are clogged filters, blocked ducts or tubes, and faulty sensors.
These simple and routine maintenance checks are usually accomplished in a short annual visit. They don’t take long or cost very much, so don’t wait until a break down to start thinking about scheduling. You’ll be glad you did!
