How long are your appliances lasting?

       So my thought has always been that your appliances should last you at least 10 years on average. Most models made in the 70's even to the early 2000's were built to last. They didn't have all the fancy options and add ons like "steam clean" or "crushed ice", but did what it was meant to do. Now appliances can talk with one another. They can track their energy use. They can be controlled by phones. They have all these fancy bells and whistles.

Now can we just get them to last?
All the technological and energy-saving gizmos added to home appliances in recent years have come at an expense: life expectancy.

In 2007, the National Association of Home Builders and Bank of America Home Equity released the "Study of Life Expectancy of Home Components," which included these estimates for long various appliances should last before you should think about replacing them.

  • Gas range oven: 15 years
  • Refrigerator: 13 years
  • Trash compactor: six years
  • Dishwasher: nine years
  • Microwave oven: nine years
  • Washing machine: 10 years
  • Electric or gas dryer: 13 years.
  • Food waste disposer: 12 years

    Keep in mind that these numbers are nine years old. If the expected life spans of these products have changed, they have probably decreased by 7 years or more.
    From my experience in the repair field, I have repaired more newer appliances less than 5 years old everyday. Some lately have been less than a year old. Most of all, people don't realize that all these bells and whistles cost more than half the cost of the machine itself. If I could give any good advise to anyone who uses appliances in their home, save your old ones, make them work with your home decor. They will saves you thousands of dollars in the future. Appliances made 15 years ago are still running and running better, if they need a small repair, it is affordable. Big company appliance makers want you to spend more money, they want the new machines to be difficult and un-affordable to repair, so you'll have to buy new ones. Then they break within 5 years and so on and so on. Keeps that dollar going round, but, I think Ill keep my dollar, Thank You!
