Installing the Right–Sized Kitchen Stove
Before moving ahead with any kitchen stove installation, you need to know what size stove you need and/or want in your kitchen. While many of today’s kitchen designs boast stoves that could work for any top chef, your kitchen may not be set up for such a stove.
There are three categories of standard kitchen stove sizes: small or apartment size, which runs from 20–24 inches in width; standard, which is made for the average residential kitchen and ranges in size from 30–32 inches in width, and commercial grade, which can be as wide as 48 inches. If you plan to install and use a stove in this last category, you need to make sure your kitchen has the room to accommodate a stove of this size. The appliance experts at Bud Matthews Services can help you determine which size stove will best fit in your home, or make sure that a model you love will fit correctly into your kitchen space.
Repair vs. Replace: Which Should I Do?
At some point, many homeowners will come to the repair vs. replace dilemma with at least one of their appliances, and yours can be counted among these appliances. If you have reached a point where you are questioning whether or not it is better to repair or replace your kitchen stove in Durham, take these important factors into consideration:
- Age – age is always one of the biggest factors to consider when replacing an appliance. Most appliances have an average lifespan of 15–18 years. If your stove is older than this, it is likely not worth the cost of repair.
- Price of the repair – if the repair to your stove costs more than half of what it would cost to replace the stove, it is suggested you go with replacement.
- Warranty – is yours still under warranty? If so, the repair may be partially or fully covered, in which case it would make sense to move forward with the repair.
