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.
