How to Save Money This Fall

image of kitchen appliancesEveryone loves to save money, but how can you save money without leaving home? By spending an hour inspecting home appliances, you can potentially save yourself hundreds of dollars. A few simple tips and keen investigating are the only things you need to get started.

Why Is Fall Important For Your Home?

Fall is very important for several reasons. First, fall is convenient because it is just before winter and bad weather, so it pays to get ready. Fall is early enough to beat rodents and birds looking for a warm home, perhaps using your dryer vent. Since most people thoroughly clean their homes in the spring, why not schedule an hour for appliance inspections in the autumn to spread your home chores over the course of a year? Finally, it is always a great time to tune up appliances, so you can save more money all year round. Making replacements and repairs before a busy laundry season like winter is a great way to save money over the long-term.

How Preventative Maintenance Can Save You Money

According to Angie’s List, “Appliance repair professionals say when the price of the repair totals more than half the cost to purchase a new appliance, you’re better off replacing the appliance.” By keeping washing machines, dryers, and other appliances in top working condition, homeowners save money over the life of the appliance. Maintaining appliances on a yearly schedule is recommended for optimal performance and the biggest money savings. Timely repairs and regular check-ups keep appliances working better overall.

What To Check Before You Call For Repairs

* Manufacture date for need of replacement
* Warranty information and expiration date
* Clogged vents
* Ensure that the appliance is plugged into the wall
* Check fuses or breakers
* Look for torn, broken, or cut wires
* Kinked or bent hoses

Fall is the perfect time to save a little money around the house. Scheduling a regular maintenance check with an expert washing machine repair company is one of the best ways to maintain home appliances. Homeowners can easily save themselves hundreds of dollars by keeping appliances in top shape. You can save the most by having maintenance performed before the busy winter season. Another tip from Angie’s List says, “If it’s cheaper to fix an appliance than replace it, the smart money is usually on the fix. However, it doesn’t make sense to fix a device that is likely to break down again in the near future or become technologically obsolete.” Make an appointment to get your appliance checked today!
