HOW LONG DO MAJOR HOME APPLIANCES LAST?

IMG_0100Whether you’re about to become a first-time homebuyer, or are already a property owner and are now going over the condition of your current appliances and your budget for new ones, it’s worth taking a closer look at some of those big ticket items. They may seem just fine but may be closer to breaking down than you think.

Below is the National Association of Home Builders general guidelines for the life expectancy of those major appliances.

For those in the market to buy right now, you may be able to negotiate a cash credit from the seller to repair or replace a high priced appliance that is worn out and old.

Gas range ovens have the longest life expectancy among appliances. They should last about 15 years.
Refrigerators and dryers are at 13 years.
Washing machines expected life at 10 years.
Electric or gas dryers at 13 years.
Dishwashers and microwave ovens should last about nine years.
Followed by trash compactors that average out at six years.
The NAHB study also found that changes in styling, technology and consumer preferences tend to push major home appliances out the door long before they’re worn out and needing to be replaced.
For example, earlier this year, GE introduced the Café Series French door refrigerator with a built-in Keurig K-Cup brewing system, available in stainless steel with an MSRP of $3,300. A selling point of the appliance is that it frees up counter space since you’ll no longer need your coffeemaker.
As far as Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning goes, these systems need to be properly maintained for maximum efficiency and life expectancy. Even in the best case scenario, most HVAC components only last 15 to 25 years. Usually furnaces last 15-20 years, heat pumps 16 years and air conditioning units 10-15 years. Thermostats usually get replaced before the end of their 35-year lifespan due to technological improvements.
Customers who want to replace their 20-year-old refrigerator are surprised when told the average life expectancy of a new one is seven to 12 years. Consumer products just don’t last as long as they used to. Keep this helpful guide in mind when planning and budgeting for your next major home improvement project.

Breast Cancer Awareness Laundry By Speed Queen
Breast Cancer Awareness Laundry By Speed Queen

  Speed Queen is combining love and laundry and it’s not the usual way by telling your mother/wife you love her for doing your laundry. Speed Queen is taking one of their washing machine and dryer models and is giving them pink knobs to increase support for breast cancer awareness. But that’s not all! For each of these special washers or dryers sold, some of the proceeds go to charity supporting breast cancer organizations. It is a win-win since you not only get a dependable machine to do your laundry, but you also are helping donate money to those with breast cancer.

 

  The washer, which has the model number AWN542, comes with all the standard features with Fill Hoses included. The washer has an automatic balancing system, bleach dispenser, rear self-leveling legs and a variable water level selector. It has all the settings you need to make sure your laundry comes out clean. Commercial quality components, such as a stainless steel tub, commercial grade cabinet and a heavy-duty motor, are standard features in Speed Queen top load washers. You’ll receive a long-lasting washer that also delivers superior cleaning results.

 

  The dryer, which has the model number ADG4BRGS, is a very durable machine helping ensure your clothes come out nice and dry. The dryer includes an adjustable end-of-cycle buzzer, automatic dry cycles and a reversible door.

 

  So if you are in need of a washing machine, dryer or both; this great opportunity is coming to a Feder’s Distributors near you! The breast cancer awareness washer and dryer are the exact same as the other colors of the same model number, but instead have pink knobs which make for a good look as well. And don’t forget some proceeds of the pink washers/dryers go to breast cancer support.

The next generation of “smart” appliances will likely connect to your phone, negotiate rates with the power company, and even communicate with other appliances.”  Click here to check out this article about “smart” appliances and then call or visit Feder’s Distributors to order your new “smart” appliances today!!

pureWash Laundry System
pureWash Laundry System

Introducing pureWash Eco-Friendly Laundry System with Ozone for high efficiency or low efficiency laundry!

The pureWash Laundry System cleans clothes using activated oxygen, known as Ozone, which breaks the molecular bonds (oxidation) that hold the dirt and bacteria to your clothes and is 3,000 times faster and 150 percent more effective than bleach at destroying bacteria.  Ozone oxidizes the soiled material into carbon dioxide and water, which decreases the discharge of chemicals in laundry waste water and encourages the breakdown of organic matter in sewers and septic systems.  The pureWash Laundry System keeps your clothes whiter and brighter and saves money by using cold water only and little to no detergent!

To learn more about the pureWash Eco-Friendly Laundry System, click here.  Then call or visit any of our three locations today to order your new system!  We have two locations in North Hollywood and we are now open in Santa Monica in the former Carlsons Appliances warehouse!

California Will Give You $50.00 For This!

Have an old washing machine like this one sitting around waiting to be picked up?  Planning on purchasing a new one for your home?

The Cash for Appliances program begins on April 22, 2010 (Earth Day) in California and would be a great time for you to get it done!

As a Platinum Partner with the program, Feder’s Distributors will be happy to pick up your old washing machine when we deliver your new one, haul it away and recycle it for you at no extra charge!  We’ll give you a receipt for proof of recycling, along with all the forms that need to be filled out so you can receive a $50 check from the state.

As you probably already know, California received $35.2 million to educate and give incentives to California consumers when they purchase brand-new energy star qualified washers, refrigerators, and room air conditioners.

If you plan to purchase any of these products, now would be the time to get a move on!

In addition to receiving $50.00 for your old washing machine, you can also earn $200.00 for your old refrigerator, and $50.00 for your old room air conditioner.  But not only that, you can still qualify for any additional manufacturer rebates as well as any additional utility company rebates!  Virtually making your new energy star qualified appliance close to free!

For example, when you turn in your old washing machine (like the one that’s more than 30 years old in the pictures above), and purchase a new one, you’ll receive a $50.00 check!

If you plan on purchasing a new energy star qualified refrigerator from Whirlpool, for example, you’ll not only receive $200.00 from the state just for turning your old refrigerator in, an additional $65.00 from your utility company (like DWP) and an additional $35.00 from DWP just for recycling your old refrigerator is also available.  Also, if Whirlpool has additional rebates for purchasing said energy star model, you’ll be eligible to receive that as well!

If you turn in your old room air conditioner, not only will you receive the $50 from California for the Cash for Appliances program, but you could also receive an additional $50 from your local utility company!

The best part? You’ll be helping keep your environment cleaner an use a much small percentage of energy than your old washer, refrigerator, or air conditioner!

We hope to see you on April 22, because the funds may run out soon (as they did in two days for many of the states who implemented the program months ago!).

Please contact us if you have any questions about this or any other program!

Don’t Buy A New Washing Machine, Refrigerator, Or Air Conditioner!

Don’t buy a new washing machine, refrigerator, or air conditioner in California until April 22nd (Earth Day)!

If your washing machine, refrigerator, or air conditioner has bit the dust, or is about to, you should wait to purchase a new one on April 22, 2010 through May 23, 2010.

As we’ve discussed here, here, and here, and tweeted about here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, The US government has set aside $300,000,000 for a rebate program similar to the Cash For Clunkers program last year called Cash For Appliances.

Details for the program in California have been sketchy until yesterday.  On its official website Cash4Appliances.org, it was announced that rebates will be available for Californians who purchase  a washer, refrigerator, or air conditioner between April 22, 2010 (Earth Day) through May 23, 2010, and recycle their old one through a certified recycler.  The rebate applicant must be a California residential consumer and must purchase an eligible appliance that meets the state’s efficiency requirements. The purchased appliance must replace an existing, working appliance.

Rebates are first-come, first-serve and will be processed as received until funds are depleted. Rebate applications must be postmarked by June 25, 2010.

Consumers who take advantage of this program can receive $200 back for a qualified refrigerator, $100 back for a qualified clothes washer, and $50 back for a qualified room air conditioner!

Customers will receive their rebates within four to six weeks if the rebate claim is complete. A complete claim contains the filled out and signed rebate claim form with appliance serial number, certificate of recycled appliance, a copy of utility bill (to verify California residential address), and a copy of the sales receipt.

Additionally, the California Cash For Appliances rebates can be combined with other manufacturer, retailer, or utility company rebates!  Like these.

Feder’s Outlet has several qualifying models in stock for pennies on the dollar like this and this, and Feder’s Distributors has most of the qualifying room air conditioners in-stock all the time for already the best prices in the country!
