3 Reasons To Repair Instead Of Replace Your Appliances This Winter

By Burt Yost Appliance Repairman on Feb 21, 2020 at 07:20 AM in Santa Barbara Appliance Repair

Dear Friends, 

Winter time is nearly here! Let's make sure your appliances are running in top shape. Whether it be your washer, dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, or oven, we are here to help with your appliance repair needs.  

For over 4 decades we have been helping people in the Santa Barbara area save time, save money, and avoid the hassles of shopping for new appliances.

We help you save time by providing same day appliance repair service for most requests around the Santa Barbara area. We understand that a refrigerator full of food is a time-sensitive problem to tackle, and that is why we offer free same-day service calls with our repairs. When appliances malfunction, it usually results in a disruption of family life, your schedule, and other life plans. Nobody wants the trouble of having a stack of dirty clothes, or the disappointment of having a batch of groceries go bad. Our goal is to help you save time by extending the life of the appliances you already have, giving you more time to focus on your life and your family. We hope to make this inconvenience as easy and smooth for you as possible.

Most people wonder if it is more cost effective to repair or replace a major appliance once it is giving them trouble. Buying new appliances can be expensive. We understand that unexpected expenses can create financial pressure on a family.  We often find that repair is usually a fraction of the cost. For example, we have encountered simple fixes like replacing filters or pumps, which is usually much more affordable than replacing the whole unit.  If you have had repetitive problems with your appliance, have had it serviced more than 3 times or is over 10 years old, we may recommend a replacement. More often than not, people choose a repair to buy themselves time to save money to buy a new unit. 

Shopping for new appliances can be overwhelming. New brands, new models, warranties, delivery, there are a lot of decisions to make and oftentimes if you don't plan ahead it can create a lot of stress. Also there are many new appliance technologies and sometimes commissioned sales-people will try to sell you more than what you really need.
This is why it is important to have time to do your research ahead of time, know your budget, and also know what your wants and needs are. Most people stay with the same brand of appliances that they have had in the past, which is a good idea if you had a good experience, but if you have had many problems we recommend reading reviews, and making a decision of a different brand. 

Please note: We do not service microwaves, ice machines, vacuum cleaners, mixers, coffee makers, LG Appliances, or any small appliances. We also do not do parts sales.  

If you are having problems with your appliances, contact us for recommendations on your specific problem.
