The cost of buying a washing machine in the UK can vary hugely, with prices ranging from as little as £200 to as much as £2,000! With the cost of living constantly on the rise, many people look to make a saving where they can and so are opting for a cheaper washing machine. However, cheaper definitely does not equal better and many people who choose a cheaper machine live to regret it.
So why are cheap washing machines not a good thing?
The main reason why cheap washing machines are not recommended is because of the materials that are used. In order to have a cheaper price tag, manufacturers will try to lower their upfront costs as much as possible.
One of the ways they will do this is by using cheaper materials and installing cheaper parts. Cheaper materials are much more likely to encounter problems and need repairing or replacing much sooner. The costs of this can quickly add up meaning you end up spending more overall.
Cheaper washing machines also usually have less longevity, with a life expectancy of five years or less. This is significantly less than standard washing machines, for example, Ebac washing machines are designed to last for 10 years. If you consistently buy cheap washing machines, you will be replacing them much more frequently meaning you will end up spending more long term.
Cheaper washing machines are also usually less efficient. Because they are made with cheaper, lower quality parts, cheap washing machines usually use more energy and water in each wash cycle, compared to standard machines. This can end up costing you more in your energy bills every year.
High-quality, reliable washing machines do not have to cost a fortune. Ebac has created a range of dependable machines at a very competitive price. All the washing machines are created using materials of the highest quality, and they even come with a 7 year warranty.
