Hiring a technician
Make sure you qualify the minimum payable charge at the outset. No call out fee, does not mean "Free". Fixed price repairs is a valid advantage for simple repairs. Because these repairers need to complete the work within a limited period of time and visits to remain profitable. They generally limit their time to half an hour on the first job. Generally they do not undertake complex diagnostics or repairs. When engaging a repairer who qualifies "Free quotes" make sure the quote is obligation free and that your appliance remains in your care. Most repairers who offer free quotes recoup their quotation costs via a margin built into the repair work. However, if you don't proceed with the repairs, a fee is normally forth coming. Ask if there is additional costs if a return visit to fit parts is required. Most repairers have a margin built into the parts, but others don't and add a charge for travel. Cheap or second hand parts are impossible for you to screen for. Here you rely on your gut feel and experience. If they drive a beat up old van, wear greasy - torn clothes, look unkempt you can probably expect to get ripped off. But that doesn't mean, just because they come in a clean van all dressed to impress that they are honest quality operators, but generally your chances improve. One of the ways technicians shorten their time on the job is to bend covers, leave screws out and generally damage panels that can't be seen. They fail to re-clip or secure cables etc. Again this is difficult to screen for, but can generally be measured by the number of jobs they book a day. 8 calls a day is a fairly busy day. If they do more than 10 jobs a day or complete jobs in 15 minutes or less you can safely assume they are taking short cuts. Long waiting times for parts are common in this industry. Some are valid and some are not. Some repairers use parts as a means to improve their scheduling efficiency. These repairers know you won't wait very long for the initial visit, but when they have collected money for the initial visit you are committed to wait for the return visit. Try to get a gauge for how long parts will take before making the initial booking. This wont overcome the problem, but might help manage your expectations. Remember... you only get what you pay for and only if you're lucky. That is a fundamental law of business, as rock solid as the law of gravity. Make sure you know why the differences exist; only then are you ready to make an informed decision on repairs. Finally, being a deal shopper doesn't mean you will get the "best repair". The 'best repair' is buried in the fine detail and only those people with lots of time to diligently check of their list of do's and dont's can be confident of getting the best deal. Deal shopping is shortsighted and ultimately the most likely means to getting a shonky repair rather than a quality one. For those of us who are time poor and have better things to do with their life than trawl the internet for hours and hours, the best way to be confident of getting a good repairer is to look for those repairers who specialise in your brand product, be prepared to pay a fair price and if you are happy with their results tell your friends and hang onto their business card.

Buying Appliances? Think Beyond Purchase Price
If you’re looking to get the best deal on your appliance purchases, you’re not alone. According to research by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), 81 percent of consumers polled say that price is the most important factor in deciding which appliance to buy. Yet, less than half say they considered energy efficiency in their decision process. Many consumers don’t realize that the true cost of an appliance is more than the initial purchase price. In fact, by selecting the most energy-efficient solutions, consumers can reduce their energy bills year after year by 20 to 30 percent. These products incorporate advanced technologies that use up to 50 percent less energy and water than standard models. Considering that the EPA estimates the average household spends $2,200 on energy bills each year, these savings can really add up. To find the most energy-efficient appliance and maximize your savings, follow these simple steps. Step 1: Remember that there are two costs associated with an appliance: the price you pay for it and the cost you incur to run it. Step 2: Look for the Energy Star label. Just because the product details might have “energy efficient” listed, it doesn’t mean it’s been engineered to be the most efficient. Energy Star-certified products have been independently tested to meet rigorous standards for energy efficiency and quality. That means they’ll give you the same (or more) service for less energy while helping to protect the environment. They also offer improved quality and durability. With products in more than 60 categories, there are many Energy Star options to choose from. Step 3: Read the yellow EnergyGuide label. This standard label, displayed on most appliances, will tell you how much energy the product uses, along with an estimated annual operating cost. By comparing these two figures on similar models — even those with Energy Star labels — you’ll be able to identify the most energy-efficient option. Keep in mind that some products that are the “most energy efficient” won’t always have an Energy Star label. Step 4: Recycle your old appliance. Ask your retailer if it has a recycling program. If not, recycling centers or local non-profits in your area might have recycling programs that make it easy to dispose of old units. Some utility companies even offer incentives to pay for old appliances you no longer use. For more information, go to

Dishwasher Dos and Don'ts
The dishwasher is an appliance that defines the concept of a present-day home. Dishwashers provide us with ultimate hygiene, water and energy savings and save our time. Without them, we would be still washing dirty dishes with our own. No one would probably want to do that, right? Well, it could come to that at some point in time and the reasons could be many from inattentive care to low water temperature to defective detergent. The kind and amount of a dishwasher detergent that is used is an important part of getting the dishes clean. For hard water, a detergent with a higher phosphorous content – above 12 percent – needs to be used. Dishwasher detergent ages quickly and has a short shelf life. Old detergents should be thrown away.
