Is it time for a new appliance? A Maydone guide to replacing appliances

We are sorry to say this but your home appliances have an expiration date. Like any other device there comes a time when you must say goodbye to the old and get an upgrade. Always keep in mind though, that you can make your appliances last longer and work better by taking good care of them and even passing them on in good condition when you decide to change.  

Getting rid of an old appliance and looking for a new one can be a daunting task for many homeowners. Because there are now thousands of models, brands, and features to choose from. Not only that, but it’s also a sizable investment so you will want to get it right for your wallet as well as your home needs. 

Getting a new Refrigerator 

Refrigerators are one of the most essential appliances in any home, they keep out food at a safe temperature and are responsible for holding a lot of what we eat. Once you start having regular cooling problems with yours, it’s time to consider getting a new one.

Refrigerators have a lifespan of about 10-13 years, where they work properly and keep your food safe for consumption. Longer than that you might be looking at one kind of refrigerator. 

Not only does food safety come into play but also energy and sustainability standards, new models have higher energy efficiency ratings and are packed with new and useful features.

REVIEWS

  • This is the second time I’ve used their services, and both time was helped by Alex. He was incredibly thorough, punctual and incredibly diligent. He went above and beyond and even fixed a wobbly door under my sink. It’s always a pleasure to find a reliable and efficient service, and I would absolutely use Alex in the future!

  • Working in a veterinary clinic - we understandably go through a lot of laundry. Our washer was out of commission and within a very short period of time, Igor not only diagnosed the problem but had it fixed. He was efficient and easy to work with.

  • When it comes to repairs you want professional, experienced contractors and on top of the problem you have. Maydone has it all. We worked with Alex (we highly recommend you ask for him) who was on time, polite, does the job, very neat and professional.

  • Contacted them late in the day and got a response first thing in the morning. Techinicians came the following day, showed up on time and repaired it quickly. Wouldn't hesitate to contact them again in the future.
