Ah … you can already feel the cooler days wafting through the Arizona Valley of the Sun. Residents of Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ, are getting ready to plan for outdoor parties, holiday parties, and snow-bird guests. You might want to consider planning for Arizona appliance repair, too.
Before all those party guests and house guests start descending on you, consider getting the routine maintenance for home appliances taken care of before an appliance repair is needed. Holidays, parties, and house guests usually mean much more cooking, much more food storage, and much more laundry for a typical household. Your refrigerator, oven, range, washer and dryer will all be working overtime in the coming months.
Routine AZ appliance maintenance is a smart investment. Often cleaning and routine care can catch problems before they become expensive – not only in the cost of the repair, but also in the cost of lost food or clothes.
And while you are thinking appliance maintenance, now is a good time to have seasonal air conditioner maintenance performed, too. Arizona can experience random hot spells well into the holidays, and you do not want to be caught without efficient climate control when you have a house full of guests
In the appliance industry, the life cycle of any particular style or color has traditionally been about 12-15 years. Not so with stainless steel appliances, now reveling in a strong 25 year cultural phenomenon. A public attachment to any one color has never – never – spanned that period of time before. And in Arizona, particularly the upper end neighborhoods of Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ, stainless steel appliances are by far the largest appliance installations.
Many major appliance manufacturers are now touting the decline of stainless steel appliances in favor of some sleek new colors, but there seems to be some differing opinions about what, exactly, will be the next big choice in appliance finishes. Whirlpool, the largest maker of home appliances, is releasing a new glossy white appliance finish called, “Ice.” Wolf Appliance is preparing a glossy black finish. GE appliances will soon be seen in a muted grey that they hope is a neutral stainless complement color that can help consumers bridge the gap period of buying appliances over time instead of replacing them all at once. All of these new finishes are being billed as, “The new stainless.”
New appliance installation is often a precursor to selling a home, and with the Arizona housing marketing picking up, it will be interesting to see if homeowners embrace these new appliance looks, or stick with what can now be called a classic: stainless steel.
