Is My Appliance Worth Fixing?

December 16, 2011

So, you're going about your busy life and BAM!! Your much-needed appliance breaks down on you. Your first thought is "Should I get a service call set up or just get a new appliance? For appliances that are still in the prime of their useful life, consider the 50% rule. If the cost of the repair will be more than half the price of a comparable replacement, it’s generally wise to replace it.

To help make your decision, get a repair estimate. Service calls come with a price whether or not the appliance gets fixed, so factor that into your decision. Angie’s List pegs the average cost of an appliance service call at $60 to $100 not counting the repair itself. Many service providers will deduct these charges if they’re hired to complete the repairs. If you decide to go ahead with the repair, expect additional service visits to complete the process. Rochester Appliance charges an ONE-TIME $55 service call fee. If you decide the appliance isn't worth fixing, then we'll offer $25 back in the form of store credit. So, this is the question you should be asking yourself... "Is it worth $30 to get it looked at?" No one else in Rochester gives you this kind of deal. We also price match the local big box stores for new sales, so you're guaranteed to get the best deal in the Rochester region. This is just one of the many reasons you should use Rochester Appliance to handle all of your appliance needs.
