Chapter 5

Compare Prices Compare prices of the washing machines and the available payment options very carefully. For instance, one store may require no payments for six months but may charge you more the washing machine. Another store may allow you to price match and get the financing. Do not ignore the delivery part of the new washing machine. Compare also the costs of delivery that usually includes professional installation.

Here are some more suggestions. Most of us who buy washing machines for our homes are only concerned with the up-front costs, and hardly give a thought about the cost of electricity to be required for running them over their lifetime. Believe it or not, this might be a huge amount which, if saved, could almost cover the cost of buying the machine in the first place. So it is better to check for energy efficiency when you compare washing machines. As average washing machines waste a lot of energy, purchase an energy saving model. This will save you a considerable amount of hard-earned money.

It's true that many cheap washing machines are now available in the market. The question is: is it wise buying them? Frankly speaking, one should consider a lot of factors before hurrying to purchase one. It is common knowledge that most cheap washing machines are rather poorly made and are not durable enough. It means they are not cheap to repair. Such cheap washing machines are bound to prove much costlier in the long run.

In reality, as the machines get cheaper, the difference between repair and replacement costs also falls proportionately.
