Is It Time to Replace Your Oven?

With Christmas and New Year’s fast approaching, it’s more important than ever to have an oven you can depend on. It can be hard to decide when it’s time to pull the plug and replace an appliance. Traditionally, replacing a large kitchen appliance has been a big investment. Thanks to Buddy’s Home Furnishings’ affordable prices and flexible payment options, it’s easier than ever to give your kitchen an update.

To decide whether or not it’s time to replace your oven, the appliance experts at Buddy’s Home Furnishings have come up with 4 questions you should ask yourself.

  1. Does it need frequent and/or expensive repairs?
    If your oven breaks on a regular basis or requires a very expensive repair, it may cost you the same or less to replace it. It can often seem more cost-effective to fix the oven you already have, but repairs can be costly and will add up quickly.
  2. Do you feel confident cooking large items like turkeys or roasts?
    Have you stopped preparing large meals in your oven due to uneven or unpredictable results? Don’t saddle yourself with an oven you don’t get much use out of. If you aren’t able to cook the things you want to cook, the oven is no longer useful to you.
  3. Have you noticed an increase in your energy bill?
    An increase in your energy bill can signal that your oven is past its prime. These days, there are several models available with the Energy Star seal which can help you keep your energy costs down.
  4. Are you replacing other kitchen appliances now?
    From both an aesthetic and practical standpoint, it makes sense to replace all of your large kitchen appliances at once. This will keep your appliances matching which can pull your whole kitchen together. In addition, this means all of your appliances will be in similar condition and will have similar lifespans.
