Taking care of your appliances is imperative to getting the most life out of them. If something is dirty, clean it right away. Be careful not to overload your washer, dryer, dishwasher or garbage disposal. Doing so causes them to have to work overtime to keep up, which will eventually take years off of their lives. Avoid using your air conditioner/furnace on days when the indoor climate is comfortable without it. Don’t place your refrigerator directly next to your oven; the heat that it gives off will cause the fridge to have to work harder to stay cool. Over time this will result in greater wear and tear on your unit’s motor and compressor, which causes it to burn out sooner. Most importantly, when something breaks on any of your appliances - don’t continue using it until it is fixed. Replace faulty parts at your earliest convenience to prevent further damage to your units.
