Expert Ideas for a Healthier Home

Major appliances such as refrigerator, cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer are expensive. Of course, you expect them to last for a few years, particularly if they are maintained and well-taken care of.

One good thing when you buy these appliances is that they have warranties, which could last for 12 or 24 months. An appliance warranty covers repairs or replacement of damaged appliances. In one instance, your appliance breaks down during the period of the warranty, the appliance company will send reliable technicians to repair them free of charge.

On the other hand, what if your appliance warranty expires. Here are some tips that you can do when your appliance warranty becomes already void:

1. Maintain your appliances regularly

It is quite disappointing when your appliances break down because you have spent a lot of money on purchasing them. To prevent this from happening, you must maintain your appliances by cleaning them regularly. At the same time, do not overuse them.

Often times, the one that is ignored in refrigerator is its condenser coils. These coils become dirty and dusty and may affect the performance of your refrigerator. Worst, they may cause its break down if left unclean for a period of time. It is advisable then that you clean the refrigerator condenser coils regularly. This works the same with other appliances.

For the washing machine and dryer, never overload it with tons of clothes. Overloading is the main cause why they break down. Once you have maintained your appliances regularly, no worries if your warranty expires. Pretty sure, they will run in good condition and no need to repair them.

2. Get a home maintenance plan

Another thing that can really secure your appliances is the home maintenance plan, which covers the repairs of your appliances when they are damaged within a year. This is a good option when your appliance warranty is ineffective anymore.

The home maintenance plan can be purchased monthly or yearly at reasonable costs. It offers unlimited service. So, if your appliances break down many times in a month, you can just call the home maintenance service and they will attend to your appliance needs right away. What is more encouraging with this plan is that it provides free labour cost for minor or major repairs. One such plan is the Yeobuild HomeUnited Plan that is a pioneer in repairing broken appliances and systems. Yes, they will not only repair your damaged appliances but also your plumbing and electrical system. Certainly, your home is safe with this home maintenance plan.

3. Opt for an extended warranty

Another option is to have an extended warranty, which expands your appliance warranty. This warranty is issued by the appliance manufacturer. It can lengthen the duration of your appliance warranty once it reaches its end. In this case, you will have no worries if your appliances break down. Besides, an extended warranty may seem more effective because the new appliances will not break down in their first year.

Appliance warranty may certainly protect your appliances. However, once it expired, it will no longer take in effect. To spare you from worries and headaches when your appliance warranty expires, you may follow the above tips. Indeed, your appliances will be protected from damages thus extending their lifespans too.
