Have you ever imagined what life would be like if you didn’t have a stove in your kitchen and had no way to cook a warm meal every day, like most of us do right now? While it is extremely difficult to conceive of this, we never give it a second thought. It’s only when our stoves malfunction, or quit working altogether, that we stop taking them for granted, and quit assuming that we can cook that nice dinner we promised our family.
It’s a safe bet that every occupied apartment, condo, or other type of home is equipped with a stove. Regardless of the brand name, make, or model, it’s easy to see how you can become dependent on this appliance. So whenever you experience problems with this appliance at your residence, just pick up the phone and call repair service.
Electric vs. Gas
There are two types of stoves that you typically find in homes today – electric or gas (natural gas or propane) – and our repair technicians can install, maintain, or repair either type. If you’re curious about the life expectancy of either, they break down in the following manner:
- Electric stoves have a life expectancy ranging from 13 to 20 years with the average between 15 and 16 years.
- Gas stoves have a life expectancy that ranges from 15 to 23 years with an average of about 19 years.
