Life Expectancy of Home Appliances

Appliance life expectancy depends to a great extent on the use it receives. Furthermore, consumers often replace appliances long before they become worn out due to changes in styling, technology, and consumer preferences. Consumer Reports recommend that you replace appliances if the cost to repair them is more than half the price of a new one.
