Who wouldn’t want to try and keep your appliances and devices running smoothly for as long as possible? If you’re interested in extending the lifespan of your electronics, then you should read some of the following to get a sense for how exactly to do that.
How to Begin Extending the Lifespan of Your Electronics
Extending the lifespan of your electronics isn’t as complicated as it might sound. “Every year people spend oodles of cash on new appliances because their older ones died prematurely.” If you want to save time and money, then, you’ll be happy to learn that just a bit of regular maintenance can help to keep those appliances from dying.
Your washing machine, for example, is a great place to start. These powerful appliances use a lot of water and electricity on a regular basis, so you want to try and “switch out the fill hoses (where the water comes into the machine) every 4-5 years.” This will both keep the washer running at peak performance while also keep it from doing damage to your home if, for example, the hoses break and flood part of the room.
Similarly, dryers are a big power hog that you can do some quick and easy maintenance to. “A poorly-maintained dryer can wear out faster and drive up your utility bills” if it doesn’t do something worse, like start a fire. Make sure to remove lint after each load of laundry and, as with the washer, clear out the lint hose as often as you can, so long as you know how to do it properly.
Refrigerators are another place in which you can easily work on extending the lifespan of your electronics. Your fridge has a seal around the door that should be regularly cleaned to ensure that it’s doing its job. The freezer should be defrosted every once in a while and the fridge’s water filter replaced. These are just a few steps, but they’ll go a long way in your efforts to keep these appliances lasting as long as possible.
