Unless you are among the top 1% of Americans that are considered wealthy, nobody likes shopping for new household appliances. Replacing home appliances can be a daunting task. Finding the right appliance to fit your household needs, while still being within your family’s budget, is a challenge all of us will face at one time or another.
Fortunately, there are a few ways you can ensure that your household appliances don’t need to cost you any more than necessary. If you follow these simple tips when buying new home appliances, courtesy of Pacific Appliance Repair Services, you can save money not only at the register, but over the long haul as well.
- ENERGY STAR SAVES MONEY: Thanks to our country’s awareness on rising energy costs all appliances are given an Energy Star rating. This rating will tell you roughly the annual cost it will take to run the appliance in your home. Choosing an appliance with a good Energy Star rating (or low yearly energy cost to run), may not save you at the register, but will ensure you put a few extra dollars in the bank each month.
- BUY WHAT YOU NEED: More and more appliances are coming out with additional bells and whistles designed to impress. While these features claim to make life easier, many of these additional features can be done without. Evaluate what you want from a home appliance and get only what you need. Avoiding extras on your home appliances can ensure you get what you need at a cost you can afford.
- SHOP NEAR THE END OF THE MONTH: Many appliance stores have sales quotas that they like to reach and sometimes, during a slow sales month, you’ll find stores more open to negotiation. This may not always be the case with every store, but keep your eye open for great deals as the month progresses.
- BUY NEUTRAL COLORS: How does the color of your appliance save you money? You would be surprised at how many people get rid of perfectly good appliances after a home renovation, simply because the appliance doesn’t fit their new color scheme. Buying neutral color appliances that match everything can ensure you are not tempted into doing the same.
Finding ways to save you some money, when it comes to home appliances, can make shopping for them a little less painful.
