Infographic: Lifespan of essential household items

If you’ve ever had an air conditioner fail on a hot summer day, you understand the importance of anticipating when household items need to be repaired or replaced. 

Not only is it annoying to deal with a broken appliance, but it can waste energy and money while the problem is fixed. Not to mention that old appliances and household fixtures like windows are not up to par with today’s energy efficiency standards. 

On the other hand, it can be wasteful to replace an item before it’s nearing the end of its life. 

To maintain a green home, there needs to be a happy medium between too early and too late. Simply Self Storage has put together a graphic to help homeowners do that. 

The infographic explores appliances and household fixtures’ average lifetimes. While it’s not exact, it presents a good idea of when it’s time to start paying closer attention to the things inside and outside the home.
