While it’s a good idea to keep all of your appliances running smoothly all year round, some are more susceptible to time of year damage than others. Your refrigerator works hard to keep your food fresh, but it’s especially taxed in the summer when 99-degree temperatures cause it to run more frequently. Likewise, your stove and oven are put to more use in winter, which sees an average temperature of 41 degrees, to cook your holiday feasts, which can put a strain on its components.

Whether it's summer or winter, having your appliances serviced by a professional is always a good idea. Routine maintenance can extend the life of your appliances and avoid expensive repairs in the future. And, when it comes to home appliances, being safe is always better than sorry.
