Welcome back to the Appliance Champion blog! We hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and that everything went smoothly. Often with the holidays, our appliances get more work than the rest of the year due to cooking, extra guests being in our Dallas-Fort Worth area homes, and the expectations of the holidays. No matter, how the holidays went. It is exciting to look to a new year, leaving the good, bad and the ugly of the past year behind us and looking forward to possibly turning things around this new year.

Today on our blog, we are thinking about the new year and what that might mean for your appliances. If you live in Watauga, Keller, Southlake, Grapevine, Colleyville, Bedford, North Richland Hills, Arlington, Saginaw, or anywhere else in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, call Appliance Champion for all your appliance repair needs. Whether you need Bosch microwave repair or Maytag washer repair, Appliance Champion has the “appliance repair open today” services you need.

5 New Year’s Resolutions For Your Appliances

New Year’s resolutions come in a variety of “shapes and sizes” targeting a wide variety of our lives. However, many choose to work on their waistline, finances, or even their career, but what could the new year mean for your appliances. You don’t need to primarily focus on your appliances, but it doesn’t hurt to have better habits when it comes to some of your home’s most valuable assets.

You May Not Need A New Appliance

First, you may be thinking about replacing your appliances — new year, new you, new appliances, right? You think about your washer that seems to make that weird noise and your fridge that seems to be running extra hot lately, and may think that this is your only option. However, you may not need to replace your appliances; they may just need a little maintenance. By opting to call your local appliance repair company instead of immediately buying new appliances, you could save hundreds of dollars by getting them fixed instead. You could use the money saved to fund your progress towards your other New Year’s goals!

Provide Better Maintenance

With the new year, you may be thinking about treating your body a little better. You may be hitting up the gym more often, opting for better food choices, and maybe going to bed a little earlier. You know how much better you feel when you take care of yourself — why not give your appliances the same love? Like your body, by treating your appliances a little better with regular maintenance calls, they will run better and last longer. Giving your appliances what they need can include being better about emptying the lint drawer, as well as calling your local appliance repair company for regular checkups.   

Call Your Repair Tech Right Away

You can also purpose to call your repair tech right away from your appliances begin to act up. By calling for an appointment right away, you may be saving your appliances from additional damage: the longer you wait to call for repairs, the more likely you may incur more and possibly more costly repairs. If your fridge starts making a clunking noise or your dryer isn’t drying your clothes like it used to, call the day that you notice. If you call Appliance Champion, we can most likely accommodate you with a same-day appointment, meaning you will have your appliance fixed right away and you’ll be able to rest easy knowing your appliance will have your back when you need it.

Never Fix Your Own Appliance

With the start of the new year, you may want to get better at home maintenance. This is an excellent goal. However, we would suggest that you keep your honey-do list to your home — not your appliances. We commend you for your go-getter attitude, but appliance repair is best left to the professionals. Why? First of all, if anyone other than a certified appliance repair tech works on your appliance, it will void your warranty which means that you will have to pay for all repairs and parts. Also, fixing certain appliances can be quite dangerous to the inexperienced hand attempting to fix it. Save time, save money, and keep yourself, your home, and your family safe by calling your local appliance repair company.
