Appliance repair, no matter what part of your home, can be a big money suck without a home warranty. This article details the various home appliances and what it costs to replace them without a warranty.
Heating & AC
Heating and AC are the most expensive appliances to repair. If you live in an area with hot summers or cold winters, you’ll need to use them a lot, which can lead to parts breaking down faster. To replace them costs $3625-$3800 each. Ouch!
Your oven, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge will all likely need repairs or replacements at some point. Smaller appliances cost a few hundred to replace, and refrigerators can cost up to $1500 or more.
Washer & Dryer
Your washer and dryer spin at high rates, creating a lot of movement that can wear them down quickly. These costs around $600-$900 each.
Home Warranty Coverage
You don’t have to worry about replacing all of these units yourself if they break down, though. Home warranties can cover all of these appliances and extras, from roofing, to pool components, to electrical systems, and more.
They may charge you at a monthly rate, running anywhere from $40-$70 per month, depending on what you get covered. In the long run, this is your best bet to protect your home appliances.
