Repair or Replace?

Nearly every time a major appliance or electrical gadget breaks, I find myself wondering if spending money to replace the item is a better choice than spending money to repair it. In addition to the financial factor, there are several others to consider:

  • How long will the appliance last after it's repaired?
  • What is the environmental impact of purchasing a replacement?
  • What options exist for recycling the old item?
  • How much more energy efficient would a newer product be?
  • How long will the repair take?

'TheGreenGuide' offers a quick reference and explanations for their recommendations in online article:  Repair or Replace. This is definitely worth reading and bookmarking for future reference.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
