Replace or repair your appliance?

If you can’t work out what’s wrong with your appliance, let alone fix the problem, you may be weighing up whether to call out a professional to have your home appliance repaired, or whether you should simply replace it. Here are some things to consider:

  • If it’s very old, it’s probably not running very efficiently anyway and so this may be a good opportunity to change it for a newer, more energy efficient model. While you’ll need to find the money to fund this purchase up front, you will save money over time on your energy bills.

  • Sometimes we purchase a home appliance and, over time, find it doesn’t have all the features we need, but we make do. If this is the case with the appliance that’s broken, perhaps this is reason enough to buy a new one that has all the features you need. If it’s an appliance that suited your needs perfectly before it broke, however, getting it repaired may be best, in case you can’t find a like for like replacement.

  • Sometimes, fixing one large part costs close to the original price of the appliance. If this is the case, it’s probably more cost effective to simply buy a replacement. If a professional wants to charge £100 to repair a washing machine that cost you £200 and could go wrong again, it doesn’t make sense to pay out for this.
