Should I replace my dishwasher?

Replacing your broken down dishwasher is usually the more cost-effective option. Repair costs for out-of-date equipment are often higher than the cost for a new appliance because parts are discontinued and hard to find. But what if your old dishwasher is still operational? Will replacing it save you money? Here are a few considerations.

  • Lowered energy costs: Apart from superior operations, new appliances are far more energy efficient and can substantially lower your electricity bill.
  • Lowered water waste: In addition to being energy efficient, a new dishwasher uses 1/3 less water than older models, potentially lowering your water bill and conserving in the process.

You can find energy efficient dishwashers at most home improvement stores, as well as major department stores.
