Anthony discusses home appliance repair with Channel 7 News
The Appliance Doctor has had fifteen minutes of fame! (Well, technically it was a second over two minutes, but who’s counting?)
Anthony Attanasio, the head appliance doctor appeared as an expert news source on Eyewitness News for Channel 7 in a Consumer Reports special feature on home appliance repairs this past month. In the video and article that Channel 7 features him in, he offers insight and advice on how to know when the right time is to repair and when the right time is to replace your home appliance.
While Anthony is by no means unfamiliar with being on film (see Appliance Doctor TV), his appearance on Chanel 7 is especially exciting as it is one of the largest news channel in his local area of NYC, Westchester and the Bronx.
Also exciting is the fact that Consumer Reports sought out Anthony because of his expertise on the subject of home appliance repair. Consumer reports is an organization that publishes newsletters and digital content for consumers. Their mission is act as a reliable and unbiased resource offering advice and research about a variety of products.
A True Appliance Doctor and Expert News Source
Anthony has been in business since 1980 and has been handling appliance repairs in NYC, Westchester and the Bronx ever since. In the video he talks about an appliance repair he performed that saved his client over $1600.
“When an appliance breaks down, don’t just rush out to buy a new one. A simple appliance repair may do,” Anthony says in his video interview.
The video interview also covers what some of the most reliable appliances and brands are, and the ones that are most prone to repair. Consumer Reports found with 3- to 4-year-old appliances, one of the most repair-prone is a side-by-side refrigerator with an ice maker. One in three had repairs. When looking at brands, Consumer Reports found that GE stoves or other GE cooking appliances are very reliable, but GE refrigerators with ice makers are prone to repair. LG clothes dryers were reliable, but again LG refrigerators needed repair.
