Appliance Installers and Repairers - Employment & Outlook

The table below provides information about the number of workers in this occupation in various regions. It also provides information about the expected growth rate and future job openings.

Employment

About 19% of appliance installers and repairers are self-employed.

Major employers:

  • Appliance stores
  • Appliance repair shops
  • Gas companies

Outlook

Demand for appliance installers and repairers is declining. New appliances don't need to be repaired as often as those built 20 years ago. In addition, some consumers prefer to buy new appliances instead of repairing their old ones. However, as consumers invest in more expensive appliances they may have them repaired instead of buying new ones when they break. Many appliances are also becoming more complex. Homeowners may find they must call a repairer instead of fixing it themselves.

Job openings will occur as current installers and repairers leave this occupation.
