Life Saver Tips to Extend Your Home Appliances

In these modern times, you would hardly see homes without smart appliances. Even third world nations are slowly but surely keeping up with all the innovations and new technologies being brought by this new wave of modernization. It seems that everyone cannot get enough of all the new and shiny things that make their everyday life so much easier.

Kitchen Appliances

However, people often forget that home appliances, themselves, need some TLC as well—especially if they want them to last for a really long time. Fortunately, there are some tips you can follow in order to do just that; here’s some of them:

Don’t overload your washing machines

Washing machines make people’s lives really easy. They no longer have to hand washed all their clothes in order to have clean and presentable ones. But as much as possible, you don’t want to overload your washing machines. This is actually one of the top reasons why a washing machine will stop working. Avoid this by putting the right amount of load in your washer and you’ll be good to go.

Follow directions when cleaning your appliances

It is important to clean your home appliances every now and then to ensure they are working on their top shape. The last thing you want to do is break your appliances because you forgot to clean them. However, keep in mind that you must follow the right directions when cleaning them. You can usually find these instructions on their manuals, so be sure to keep them beforehand.

Remove unnecessary objects in your fridge and freezer

Did you know that the amount of food you put inside your fridge and freezer can affect their performance?

You read that right; placing too much stuff inside them can render them useless. Remember that these appliances are working double than they can whenever they have twice as many food items inside that they need to store and cool off. Be sure to empty and remove those things you think are no longer edible from your fridge and freezer and into your trash bin!

Defrost your freezer once a year

Not all freezers has a defrost function. If you are an owner of a freezer that won’t defrost itself, give yourself some favor by defrosting it on your own. Unplug it from its electric sockets, let the ice melt, and scrape them all away before turning it back on again. By doing this you are going to improve the longevity of your freezer (and refrigerator).

Unplug your appliances when they are not in use

This is true for most of your appliances—particularly for your TV screens. A lot of people leave their TVs on when they’re not actually watching the television. Don’t follow their example and turn it off whenever you don’t really need it. Doing this will not only improve their lifespan, but also lower down your electricity costs!

In the Philippines, kitchen appliances are one of the most popular home appliances you can see in malls and shopping centers. This is not only because they cater to those who love to cook, but also to people who needs assistance in their cooking methods. In this example, you could really see that technology is a great equalizer. Remember these tips and you will have home appliances that can last for a really long time!
