Prevent electrical damage, know when it’s time for appliance repairs

It is imperative to be aware of when it is time to have your electrical appliances repaired  by an electrician, to prevent electrical damage or accidents from happening to your home, business or its occupants.

Most homes have a wide variety of appliances to help make our lives easy such as washing machines, television sets, vacuums, dishwasher, fridge and so on. Regardless of the brand of appliance you have chosen, it will have a lifespan and even with the best maintenance, most appliances will start showing faults when they are near to that lifespan.

You should at least be aware of the signs that indicate that it is time for repair services or a change of parts.

  1. Sound check! Do you still remember the sound your appliance made when it was brand new? If your washing machine, for example, starts making noisy, irritating sounds when powered on, it’s time to get your team of professional technicians in because that could mean it needs to be repaired.
  2. Moisture can pool up near the bottom of leaking appliances, such as washing machines, fridges, and air conditioning units. Additionally, moisture can appear on walls and in crevices in humid rooms due to a lack of air flow. If you suspect excess moisture buildup, call your trusted appliance repair specialist to get the issue fixed right away. If the appliance is still under warranty, you may want to contact the service center so they can assign technicians to attend to your needs.
  3. Your electricity bills are just suddenly exorbitant! When you start having to pay for more expensive utility bills than normal, then this may be an indication that some of your home appliances are due for repair. Most electrical companies will offer maintenance checks, which will include recommendations for when repairs when needed, or when the appliance needs to be replaced.
  4. Appliance malfunctions are a good indicator that it is time for appliance repairs as well. For example, when your oven is no longer reaching the desired temperature, dials are not functioning or there are sparks when it is in operation. If your clothes are taking a longer time to dry, or won’t tumble, or the dryer is making loud noises, then get it checked because it may be needing an appliance repair. Any sort of malfunction is a clear sign that your appliance needs some TLC.
