How To Extend Life Of Water Appliances? || Ecowell India
We want to have a long-term relationship with most of our water appliances as they demand a considerable investment of our money. Read on to find out how you can do so.
Buying electrical appliances for your house is usually an investment that is heavy on our wallets. We try to use these appliances for an extended period of time, as long as we possibly can. But wear and tear is inevitable. And when that happens we don’t usually go out there to buy an entirely new appliance; we repair it or replace parts of it. While we are bound to spend some amount of money on its maintenance, there are certain measures we can take to help our appliances stand the test of time, achieve longevity and continue to give a smooth performance. The water appliances that we are referring to here include water purifiers, washing machines, electric water heaters, geyser, water softener, dishwasher, bathroom and kitchen sink and fixtures, etc.
In this article we will help you with a few tips for the same:
1. Follow the given instructions: First and foremost it is very important to carefully read and follow the instructions that come with the appliances that you buy. If little efforts are made each time you use those appliances to do so according to how the experts have recommended, then we are likely to enjoy a longer and smoother performance of them. These instructions also indicate the kind of products that need to be used with them and it is essential to use only the ones prescribed. For example, dishwashers should only use the soap that works with dishwashers, remove the food residue and scrape off the dishes before loading them into the washer, bathroom and kitchen fixtures should be cleaned using suitable cleaning agents and only on surfaces where indicated, the washing machine should not be overloaded with clothes or the dishwasher with dishes.
2. Regular cleaning: Based on how the manuals have instructed to clean the appliances, make sure you clean them regularly. Bathroom and kitchen fixtures require to be cleaned regularly and so do electric water heaters.
3. Regular Servicing: While some appliances can be repaired ourselves, most of them are better handled by expert technicians or at least under their supervision. It is very important to buy appliances from a brand that provides good and dedicated services and one must schedule regular servicing with them. This is a very crucial step towards the proper functioning and performance of your appliances and to also extend their life. At Ecowell, we are proud of the services that we offer which are timely and free of cost with no hidden charges within the guaranteed period.
4. Install a water softener: Hard water contains high content of calcium and magnesium ions which get deposited as limestone on all your water appliances- Purifier, Washing Machine, Dishwasher, fittings, and fixtures, etc. These are often hard to get rid of when accumulated over a long period of time. They also hinder and degrade the performance of your appliances. A permanent and economical solution for this is to install a water softener that helps you surmount a great number of hard water problems. Water Softener itself can be taken care of by regular and timely servicing, changing the spare parts when needed.
While it is absolutely necessary to take care of your appliances on a regular basis, it can get a bit tedious when the service providers of the brand are not cooperating well with you. Often we see a delay in services or hidden charges showing up at the end of the servicing, that eventually becomes a little heavy on the pocket. Ecowell strives to maintain the trust of its customers and provides a hassle-free service experience even post the guaranteed period. The guaranteed period itself is very smooth and transparent.
Hope this article helps you in being more mindful of how you use and maintain your appliances with every use so that you can enjoy their longevity and smooth performance.
