The life expectancy of common #HouseholdAppliances ! Stay cautious to avoid tragedy!
Hello fellow friends! Did you know there's always a reason for #ApplianceExplosion on the news? More than 74.2% of accidents involving appliances are not because of the product quality, but it's usually caused by improper use!
Let us discover the truth today for the sake of your safety!
We tend to take our appliances as some kind of life partner after having them for a long while, often not changing them unless it is a last resort. But did you know that every #HouseholdAppliance has its own lifespan? If you use them longer than their expected lifespan, they might consume more energy than usual or break down, leakage currents, short circuits or even explosions might happen!
We've compiled a list of the average life span of appliances at your home:
TV: 8 - 10 years
If the picture on your TV screen is not clear and the screen is flickering, that means that the relevant TV components have been aged. If your TV has reached the decline stage, please do not turn on the TV for a long time to avoid poor heat dissipation and result in component damage!
Fridge: 12 - 16 years
If your fridge has been used longer than 12 to 16 years, it's very likely that its cooling performance might drop and you could hear it running with shaky noise! A fridge that has been running for more than 10 years will consume the double amount of power it usually takes and current leakage might happen too!
Hair Dryer: 4 years
Since a hair dryer is mostly used every day or even more frequently than once a day, it's common that a hair dryer is short-lived. It's unavoidable that every long-hair girl got their hair trapped by a hair dryer before, and this would usually lead to a short circuit!
Washer: 8 years
If you notice that there is leaking water or electricity from your washer, it is reminding you that it's time to replace a new one!
Electric Stove: 8 years
It's common that the gas hose of a stove easily turns worn-out under normal use, and results in air leaks. If your stove is turned on and off too often, the switch might spoil and bring harm to you due to air leaks!
Air Conditioner: 8 - 10 years
An air conditioner's life expectancy varies depending on many factors. Other than the brand quality itself, everyone's lifestyle and habits of using it, as well as the emphasis on maintenance are different too, hence every air conditioner's lifespan is greatly different. When dust keeps blowing out and even black stuff coming out from your air conditioner, that means it's about to die and it's time to get a new one!
Other Household Appliances:
Electronics (audio, VCR, charger): 10 years
Electric Motors (electric fan, vacuum cleaner): 12 years
Electric Resistance / Electric Heating (kettle, electric frying pan): 5 years
Electric Light Sources (incandescent light bulb, ga
s-discharge lamp, dimmable lamp): 2 years
In fact, other than understanding the lifespan of various household appliances, what's important is that we should always use them properly and conduct regular checks to ensure that they are always running in safe and normal mode. Do remember that the above-mentioned conditions are signals that an appliance asking for a repair or a new replacement.
Never hesitate when it's time to replace some appliances! Otherwise, you are keeping some potential danger at home!
