HOW LONG DO MAJOR HOME APPLIANCES LAST?

IMG_0100Whether you’re about to become a first-time homebuyer, or are already a property owner and are now going over the condition of your current appliances and your budget for new ones, it’s worth taking a closer look at some of those big ticket items. They may seem just fine but may be closer to breaking down than you think.

Below is the National Association of Home Builders general guidelines for the life expectancy of those major appliances.

For those in the market to buy right now, you may be able to negotiate a cash credit from the seller to repair or replace a high priced appliance that is worn out and old.

Gas range ovens have the longest life expectancy among appliances. They should last about 15 years.
Refrigerators and dryers are at 13 years.
Washing machines expected life at 10 years.
Electric or gas dryers at 13 years.
Dishwashers and microwave ovens should last about nine years.
Followed by trash compactors that average out at six years.
The NAHB study also found that changes in styling, technology and consumer preferences tend to push major home appliances out the door long before they’re worn out and needing to be replaced.
For example, earlier this year, GE introduced the Café Series French door refrigerator with a built-in Keurig K-Cup brewing system, available in stainless steel with an MSRP of $3,300. A selling point of the appliance is that it frees up counter space since you’ll no longer need your coffeemaker.
As far as Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning goes, these systems need to be properly maintained for maximum efficiency and life expectancy. Even in the best case scenario, most HVAC components only last 15 to 25 years. Usually furnaces last 15-20 years, heat pumps 16 years and air conditioning units 10-15 years. Thermostats usually get replaced before the end of their 35-year lifespan due to technological improvements.
Customers who want to replace their 20-year-old refrigerator are surprised when told the average life expectancy of a new one is seven to 12 years. Consumer products just don’t last as long as they used to. Keep this helpful guide in mind when planning and budgeting for your next major home improvement project.

Breast Cancer Awareness Laundry By Speed Queen
Breast Cancer Awareness Laundry By Speed Queen

  Speed Queen is combining love and laundry and it’s not the usual way by telling your mother/wife you love her for doing your laundry. Speed Queen is taking one of their washing machine and dryer models and is giving them pink knobs to increase support for breast cancer awareness. But that’s not all! For each of these special washers or dryers sold, some of the proceeds go to charity supporting breast cancer organizations. It is a win-win since you not only get a dependable machine to do your laundry, but you also are helping donate money to those with breast cancer.

 

  The washer, which has the model number AWN542, comes with all the standard features with Fill Hoses included. The washer has an automatic balancing system, bleach dispenser, rear self-leveling legs and a variable water level selector. It has all the settings you need to make sure your laundry comes out clean. Commercial quality components, such as a stainless steel tub, commercial grade cabinet and a heavy-duty motor, are standard features in Speed Queen top load washers. You’ll receive a long-lasting washer that also delivers superior cleaning results.

 

  The dryer, which has the model number ADG4BRGS, is a very durable machine helping ensure your clothes come out nice and dry. The dryer includes an adjustable end-of-cycle buzzer, automatic dry cycles and a reversible door.

 

  So if you are in need of a washing machine, dryer or both; this great opportunity is coming to a Feder’s Distributors near you! The breast cancer awareness washer and dryer are the exact same as the other colors of the same model number, but instead have pink knobs which make for a good look as well. And don’t forget some proceeds of the pink washers/dryers go to breast cancer support.

Frigidaire Affinity Washer and Dryer Pair Receives NSF International Certification for Sanitization


Frigidaire announced that its Affiinty Washer and Dryer pair received the NSF International certification for sanitization, which kill 99.9% of bacteria commonly found on laundry.

The internal heater of the NSF-certified 7000 and 8000 series washers raises water temperature during the cycle, while the stainless steel dryer heats air and clothing, both reaching temperatures high enough that 99.9% of bacteria commonly found on laundry are killed. Plus, the stainless steel interior prevents bacteria transfer load to load.

NSF International, The Public Health and Safety Company, is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization, and is a world leader in standards development, product certification, education, and risk-management for public health and safety. With engineers, chemists, toxicologists, and environmental health professionals on staff, The NSF Mark is a leading indicator for sanitization.

The Frigidaire 6700 series dryer is also NSF certified. After running any wash cycle, the dryers will sanitize clothing when the following cycle combinations are selected: 90 minute timed dry with High/Max Heat, Towels with Max Heat, or Heavy Duty with Max Heat.
