Three things home owners do that harm their appliances

Although we try our best, sometimes we do things as homeowners that in THEORY seem sensible or like they’re the right thing to do; but are, in fact – very bad. You’d be surprised at how much this applies to people when it comes to taking care of their appliances. 

Today, we’re going to discuss some of the things that people might be doing that are damaging their appliances and what some of the things are that you can do to make sure you avoid doing so. Let’s jump right in!

Not performing regular maintenance

This is unquestionably #1. While appliances are machines, they’re not infallible and like anything else you own – require routine maintenance in order to operate at their best. Like the old saying goes – an ounce of prevention is really worth a pound of cure and you can dramatically extend the lifespan of your appliances by simply having them be looked at every so often. This way you avoid potential catastrophes before they even become small problems. 

Installing appliances on your own

We all want to save a buck here and there where we can. The economy isn’t quite pumping still and inflation has made things challenging for everyone. That being said, making some wrong decisions with this in mind can happen and actually could cost you even more in the long run. Installing your own appliances certainly falls under that. If we were the betting type – over half of the issues we encounter stem from or have origins in an improper installation that was usually done by the owner themselves. Have a professional install them. Always. It’s worth the extra few bucks.

Not reading instructions

Instruction manuals are there for a reason, folks. Appliances are more complex than they’ve ever been and you really need to know your appliance inside and out in order to take care of it. Ignoring them is a guaranteed, one-way ticket to a broken appliance. Remember – these are electrical devices that often are plugged into the wall. So a failure inside the appliance could cause further damage elsewhere. Read your manuals. 

We feel if you avoid these three things -you’re likely to reduce the likelihood of something happening by a solid 60%. And these are just the basics! If you can make sure your appliances are maintained, get them installed properly and read your instruction manuals – you can greatly improve the performance of your appliance, but also extend it’s life significantly, too. That means more value, more bang for your buck and the ability to extend the life of your dollars that much more.
