We rely on household appliances like dryers every day. They not only dry our never-ending loads of laundry; they warm and soften blankets on cold winter nights, and keep pillows allergen-free. If your dryer is showing signs of aging, it may be time to throw in the towel (or take it out!) and find a new dryer to complete the task. Here are the signs to look for:
- Overheating or under heating.
Start shopping if your dryer cycles are either leaving your laundry crunchy and slightly burned smelling or if they aren’t getting dry in one cycle.
- It’s over 10 years old.
If your dryer is pushing 10 or over, it may be time to look for a new dryer you can rely on to work consistently.
- Difficult repair.
The rule of thumb for repair work is if it will cost 40% of the cost of a replacement to get it fixed, it’s time to invest in a new one.
If your dryer is on its last leg, don’t worry about how you’re going to finance a replacement. At Buddy’s Home Furnishings, we specialize in exceptional pricing over a longer time frame, so you can stay within your budget from month to month. Stop by your local Buddy’s showroom to learn more.
