Dishwashers are machines and machines break. That's the hard truth. At some point you will need a dishwasher rack repair or a new heating element and you'll need to call in a pro to make that happen. For many of us making that call can feel like the kiss of death. All we can think about are the huge repair bills the hours of inconvenience as a repair person takes over our kitchen and a nagging hunch that any appliance expert we let through the door will find even more things wrong than we knew about in the first place. These are all very scary thoughts. However when you stop to actually consider the situation it becomes apparent that a dishwasher expert can be your key to major savings in terms of both time and money. Read on to find out how your local appliance pro can play the role of the superhero rather than the super villain in your dishwasher drama.
We plan to live in our home for at least five more years and this fact does weigh on our dishwasher choice. We want to make sure we have an energy efficient dishwasher but want to be able to recoup our money. Another mistake homeowners make is buying the most expensive energy saving product. Sometimes this is not an efficient use of money. If you buy a $1200 dishwasher you may only be saving $20-$50 a year on water and energy usage. You would have to stay in your home at least 10 years to realize the savings over the $700 model. Something else to consider when buying a dishwasher.
The ideal size for a small dishwasher is whatever width your cabinets are next to the sink. Standard cabinet widths are 12 15 and 18 inches. There are plenty of 18 inch dishwashers for about $400 each. They typically fit eight plate settings which would work for a family of three. 15 inch dishwashers are far and few between none of the major retailers has one. So if the cabinets next to your sink are 15 inches or less you may want to skip an under counter dishwasher all together and try one of the newer counter top dishwashers.
One of the most frequently asked questions in remodeling is how is it possible? To some it might be a little bit more difficult but to others it may be easier even if you plan on buying new kitchen cabinets. When time comes to install a dishwasher properly most homeowners either take out a piece of the cabinet or a chunk of the countertop. This will eliminate any problems you had for the space of the dishwasher. Even if you have already planned your remodeling project you can still have your dishwasher that you might still want.
Another option that is often overlooked is the 60cm dishwasher drawer which as its name suggests is a pull out drawer that houses the dishwasher. This can be in either a single or double arrangement. The advantage of this design is that it is easier to load and unload as you would not need to stoop as much. It also gives greater flexibility on where it can be located within the kitchen. Be sure to opt for the premium brands if you can as they tend to more reliable. Recently their dependability has improved as scope for their popularity in the future increases. The reduced capacity of this design is also a consideration and it is common for a kitchen designer to specify two dishwasher drawers as a result. And if you are a larger family there are wider 90cm versions available.
