Peter Decher

Starting the Business

After Peter graduate college in 1985 he started his own business and has been in business for himself ever since.


In 1980 Peter left Montgomery Wards as a repairman and went to Tulsa, OK to be an Aircraft Mechanic and went to school at Spartan School of Aeronautics and got his 2- year associate degree and became a licensed Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic. Peter Decher built flight simulators to train pilots how to fly for United Airlines, TWA, ANSETT of Australia airlines and a project to Libya which got cancelled. After getting laid off Peter went back to school at Oklahoma State to get his Bachelor's Degree. Then when Peter moved back to Albany, New York in 1985 seeing as he was starting his own appliance repair business he enrolled in Hudson Valley Community College and got his 2- year Associate degree in Refrigeration at night.

The Great Leap

In the 1970s, Peter worked for Singer Sewing Machine company at a sewing repair shop. He left to work for Montgomery Ward where he could do multiple types of repairs. This turned out to be a great move because he acquired the skills he needed to start his own business.

Personal Life

Peter has two children and two grandchildren. 

If a second service call is required, you will not be charged for a second service call for a return visit.


Clients are the backbone of every business. Peter takes pride in satisfied customers' testimonials such as this one:

"We have a Kenmore dryer that stopped tumbling. We called Sears and they just kept trying to sell us a "plan" - a real hard sell, so we hung up. We then called Decher's - he came in about an hour and fixed it easy as pie. Skip Sears - call Decher's." - Google™ user
