If your refrigerator is hissing, leaking, or simply failing to keep your food cold, you may be tempted to break out your checkbook and buy a new one.
Not so fast.
Before heading out to your local appliance store, consider first contacting a repair service. Fixing your refrigerator instead of simply replacing it can offer you many benefits – here are five of them.
1. It will keep your food fresh for longer.
A warm refrigerator is as good as no refrigerator at all. Refrigerators have one job: to keep your food cold. When they can’t do this, they do nothing other than take up space and guzzle up electricity. A freshly-repaired refrigerator will keep your food fresh for longer, reducing food waste and preventing possible cases of food poisoning.
2. It will save you money on your energy bill.
No matter what is wrong with your broken refrigerator, it is probably consuming more energy than a properly-working unit would be. Whether it is a broken gasket, compressor, or evaporator fan, your appliance is using extra energy trying to keep itself cold. Once a repair is made, you may notice significant savings on your monthly utility bill.
3. It can reduce condensation and prevent mold.
One sign of a broken refrigerator is extra moisture, whether it is in the form of condensation or a full-blown leak. Standing water invites mold to grow, which is not only unsightly, but severely unhealthy as well. Preventing excess moisture is key to keeping mold out of your home, and a healthy, functioning refrigerator can help you do this.
4. It is much cheaper than buying a new appliance.
A brand new refrigerator is likely to set you back several hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Fortunately, many repairs can be made for a fraction of the cost of a new model; who can afford to not save that kind of money?
5. It won’t interfere with your life.
Shopping for a new refrigerator is a hassle, and it often requires you to set aside a large chunk of your day to visit different appliance stores and compare prices. Then you have to make sure you are home for the delivery, which can be a 4-6 hour window. On the other hand, when you get your refrigerator repaired, you can enjoy the luxury of never having to leave your home.
