Repairing white goods
We have the right to repair household goods, such as fridges and washing machines. Great news if you feel the things you buy don’t last long enough. Legislation means manufacturers need to make spare parts available, which will help to extend the lifespan of their products.
This means disposing of items less often and possibly saving an average of £75 per year on bills, according to the BBC, as products will need to meet higher energy efficiency standards.
If a product breaks down, contact the manufacturer about your repair options, then get a qualified technician to do the work. Right to repair also covers other household items such as TVs.
