How Long do Appliances Last?

When Should I Replace My Appliances?

It's complicated

Many years ago, I used to carry around a chart from AHAM (Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers) which itemized the expected life spans of various appliances: washing machines 15 years, ranges 20 years, etc. I've long ago disposed of this, but I did find this current version. Here is a look at today's appliance lifespans from Consumer Reports:

Dishwasher – 9 years
Dryer (electric and gas) – 13 years
Microwave oven – 9 years
Range electric – 13 years
Range gas – 15 years
Refrigerator – 13 years
Washing machine – 10 years

We all know that the life expectancy of appliances is not what it used to be, but let's not confuse quality with durability. Today's washing machines use less detergent, energy and water than their predecessors. They are more gentle on clothes, and get them cleaner than ever before, but have a life expectancy of only 10 years, compared to 15 years or longer from grandma's Maytag.

Today, manufacturers seem to be on a never ending quest to reduce costs, and as consumers we shop until we drop to get save every hard earned dollar we can on appliances. Moreover, we don't seem to care if our kids inherit the family refrigerator, and we are quick to get rid of a broken appliance to avoid paying a stiff repair bill.

I recently read that in upscale neighborhoods it is not uncommon for kitchens to be remodeled about every 10 years, and that includes new appliances. So, even though appliances don't last as long as they used to, we tend not to even keep them for as long as they last.

The truth is that we don't expect our appliances to last as long as they used to…but we do expect that they have the latest features and look great in our house. I once asked a customer if she had a brand preference for her new washer. She replied that it didn't make a difference as long as the washer was red.

So, don't feel guilty about replacing your 15 year old agitator style topload washing machine with a shiny new front loader. The old machine is at the end of it's life, and the new one could actually pay for itself in energy savings….plus, it's red!

To get more information on appliances, floor coverings, and more be sure to consult your design professional or builder, and make an appointment with the experts at Arizona Wholesale Supply.

Shaw Floors at PCBC2015

FLOORTÉ™: Luxury Vinyl Flooring Collection from Shaw

At Shaw, luxury vinyl flooring—which we often call resilient—is our forte. So we’re calling our latest collection Floorte™.

Floorte™ is a vinyl laminate made using high-definition printing to emulate a hardwood or tile surface. Shaw's engineered FOLD N GO™ locking system makes installation easy. Floorté™ floors are not only strong and durable, but their flexible design helps conceal imperfections in the floor beneath. The high-definition printing creates a highly authentic appearance, and the hardwood designs are created to match the top species and colors of hardwood.

“You can get the wood look without the high-maintenance, a product that hides imperfections in subfloors, and an easy click system,” says Natalie Cady, director of hard surface marketing. “The fact that it’s waterproof is just icing on the cake.”

Laminate Coreboard Technology

An Eco-Friendly Alternative

Known for being committed to the environment, Shaw Floors laminate options are an ideal choice for all of us who are environmentally conscious. Shaw laminates have a long life span. Replacement is something you won't even think about for many years to come.

Why Choose Laminate?

Since laminate is made to look like and even feel like hardwood, maybe you're wondering why you shouldn't just buy hardwood? Shaw floors has a great selection of hardwood floors. But, here are some reasons you may want laminate:

  1. As always, price may be a consideration. Laminate can be half the price of hardwoods. And the easier, quicker installation, can save you money, also.

  2. Even though hardwood is a “natural” product, laminate is much more durable than hardwood. It's not nearly as likely to scratch or split. It's much more resist moisture damage, and maintenance is a breeze. There's less wear and tear, and it's very resistant to spills and stains.

  3. Laminate is also versatile. Various wood grains, colors, tints and patterns are limited only by consumer demand.

Appliance Delivery from Arizona Wholesale Supply

Your Home Delivery Installation and Service

Floor Covering and Major Appliances from Arizona Wholesale Supply

Arizona Wholesale Truck

I know a little bit about the great appliances at Arizona Wholesale Supply because I sold appliances myself for a number of years. I also know the great sales people at Arizona Wholesale Supply because of my longstanding association with them. But, today I'm writing as a customer about the Arizona Wholesale Supply delivery and installation experience.

I recently embarked on a major remodeling project and purchased all new carpet, new tile, and new appliances from AZ Wholesale. Whether it was the Shaw carpeting and floor tile or the KitchenAid and Whirlpool appliances, each time a delivery was scheduled I received a phone call from the office advising me of the scheduled delivery and time frame. The day before, and again early on the morning of the delivery, I received calls confirming and updating the delivery time.

Deliverymen

Delmar Contreras and Antonino Gallardo, Arizona Wholesale Supply

The Arizona Wholesale Supply delivery truck arrived with my Whirlpool washer and dryer, and KitchenAid microwave/hood and refrigerator. Two neat and polite men wearing AZ Wholesale Supply shirts identified themselves and came in to take a look at the install locations. They quickly went about their business prepping the appliances; one man working on the washer and dryer – the other taking care of the microwave/hood and refrigerator. The washer was installed first, giving the installer time to run the washer through a short cycle while completing the rest of the installation. Therefore, he knew that the washer worked, and there were no leaks. Meanwhile, the other installer had installed and vented the KitchenAid microwave hood combination. The men teamed up, and carefully wheeled in my KitchenAid refrigerator.

They removed the packing, tape, and film from each of the appliances, installed add-ons suh as the water filter, etc., connected all the water lines using high quality braided hoses, wiped down the appliances, and removed instructions and warranty cards placing them in an adjacent drawer. After completing the installs, they checked things over and gave us a brief explanation of how the appliances worked, thanked us, and were on their way.

Antonio Gallardo, Arizona Wholesale Supply

A couple weeks later, when I was ready for my KitchenAid double oven range and KitchenAid Superba dishwasher, a new installation team arrived, and I had a similar terrific experience. I'd be remiss if I didn't also mention the professional work of the carpet and tile installation team from Arizona Wholesale.

The delivery and installation folks at Arizona Wholesale Supply really know their stuff, and I really appreciated their courteous, professional demeanor. KUDOs to Arizona Wholesale Supply's delivery and installation service.

AZ Wholesale Supply – Selection Center for Appliance and Flooring

How to Select New Appliances and Flooring

A Sales Consultation vs The Bum's Rush*

 

Arizona Wholesale Supply Company Design Centers in Scottsdale (L) and Tucson (R)

Common appliance retailers, big box, and home improvement stores have sales associates who are used to making quick sales and moving on. Getting more than a few minutes of attention from them would be unusual. The reason is that most of their customers are in the market to buy now. Typically, these buyers have an appliance at home that isn't working, and they want to replace it quickly and cheaply. It's not a planned purchase, and standing in the middle of a home improvement store talking to a guy in an apron is really a very good place to gather the information you need to make a thoughtful decision.

On the other hand, at Arizona Wholesale Supply Co. the staff are appliance or flooring experts (they don't sell hardware or cell phones). They're truly sales consultants, and they are accustomed to working with builders and designers through the entire selection process from conception to completion.

So whether you are designing a new kitchen, building a new home, or just thinking about replacing worn out appliances or flooring, you don't want “The Bum's Rush*”. You want someone to devote some time, to work with you, and help you make the best choices at the best prices available. Call today and ask for an appointment. The Arizona Wholesale Supply sales consultant will be happy to set aside the time to find the solutions that will work best for you.

Consultation

Scottsdale Showroom Manager, Kent Greenhalgh reviews a set of plans with a kitchen designer.

Don't misunderstand, if you just need to replace your dishwasher, and you want to get in and out quickly, Arizona Wholesale Supply is your best choice. As Arizona's largest builder distributor, they're likely to have what you need in stock today, and at a price that will make you happy. But if you need to sit down with someone who will help you through the selection process, the sales consultants are eager to set up a meeting with you, and won't give you “The Bum's Rush*”.

* The Bum's Rush is a colloquial phrase dating back to 1910. It originally referred to vagrants being escorted from bars, but today often means disrespectfully cutting a conversation short.
