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!

A Guide for Man-Made or Synthetic Flooring Options

Educating yourself about the various options available for flooring in your home might seem like a daunting task. There are so many wonderful ways to create the perfect floor to coordinate with the overall design of a room or entire home. A smart way to go about it is to first learn the basic attributes of what makes each flooring type a smart choice. Use this guide to begin your research process. When you’ve narrowed it down to a few favorites, visit our store to learn more about each of them.

Porcelain or Ceramic Tile

Hard glazed squares made of porcelain or ceramic. This material has been well loved and used for a few centuries because it has so many valuable attributes. It is highly durable, strong, and stain resistant. It’s available in a wide variety of colors, and if it does happen to chip or crack it’s fairly easy to replace broken pieces. (This would be an unusual occurrence because of its durability.) It’s also quite easy to clean and sterilize. Learn all about tile in our Introduction to Tile.

Carpet

Carpet is made of either wool or synthetic materials. It is ideal for rooms where comfort is the number one priority. It can positively contribute to air quality by way of trapping some debris and pet dander until it can be vacuumed away. It insulates warmth well during seasonably cold weather, and it also serves to help reduce loud sounds and noise. If you would like to learn more about this, visit our Introduction to Carpet!

Engineered Wood

Engineered (aka composite wood) is manufactured by a veneer layer of hardwood overtop of several wood layers beneath. A big benefit of this material is that it can be installed fast, making it ideal for time-crunched projects. It’s easily installed over subflooring, including padding or concrete. In addition to other areas in the house, it works quite well in basements and below grade spaces because it is quite resistant to the effects of moisture. Learn more about Engineered Wood on our website.

LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile)

LVT is a synthetic polymer flooring material that is very budget friendly. It can be glued or nailed over subflooring, and it’s easy to install. It’s easy to clean and water resistant, while also being durable and flexible. Visit our Introduction to Vinyl to learn more!

Why We Love Laminate Flooring For The Kitchen

Laminate flooring is small slice of genius when it comes to kitchen flooring. Its best attributes are all ideal for a kitchen that is a busy central hub in the home. It is the space where adults, kids, guests, and pets all converge and inevitably make some kind of mess. Children pour milk into the cereal bowl too fast and splash it all over the floor. Pets dance around excitedly hoping for a treat and add a lot of wear to the floor in the process. Dinner party guests accidentally tip their appetizer plate and the sauce creeps underfoot.  If this sounds like your kitchen and you’re getting ready to remodel we recommend you take a serious look at a laminate flooring option. Why?

To begin with, modern laminate flooring is designed to resemble real wood or tile and the effect is convincing. Using laminate doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style and good taste. Next, a huge benefit of laminate is that it is very easy to clean. To care for it just be sure to quickly clean up any spills, sweep it regularly, and use a damp mop to maintain the luster of the surface. If you do this consistently, upkeep of the floor over time will be a piece of cake because laminate flooring is resistant to stains and scratches.

It happens to be exceptionally durable because of the way it is constructed. It is comprised of four layers that achieve both strength and aesthetics. They are: a melamine wear layer, a high-resolution photo, a dense core board, and a melamine backing layer. There is one detrimental substance that compromises the integrity of the flooring and that is dirt/sand. It is very abrasive and if it is on the floor for extended lengths of time it will scratch it.

Another benefit of laminate flooring is the ease with which it can be installed! It’s amazingly simple.  Both glue-free and glue options are available. These are applied over the subfloor and an underlayment (sometimes two underlayment layers). 

The last reason we’ll share, although there are certainly more, is the fact that there are so many options. Once you start exploring the details of this type of flooring you’ll find that it’s available in a wide variety of colors, textures, shapes, and finishes. All things considered, it’s an excellent choice for a household where function is the number one priority in the kitchen!

If you would like to read more about this material, visit How Laminate Is Made.  Make sure to visit us online or in person if you have any questions about the process or how to get started with this amazing option for your home!

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.
