Keep your appliances in good shape throughout the year.

School is out and college students are returning home from The Wright Institute and other colleges for the summer or winter break, making your home busier than ever.

The summer heat and chilly fall weather in Berkeley can be intense, and finding relief can lead to extra work for your refrigerator, washer and dryer, and other devices.

Your home is your sanctuary, but it also works hard for you. The appliances in your house work hard throughout the year, but shifting seasons can present additional strain. Refrigerators may get more use in Berkeley's 93-degree summer high temperatures, as thirsty or snack-prone kids and college students return home. Ovens and stoves, on the other hand, see more action in winter and over the holidays, when temps can sink to average lows of 46 degrees.

We offer repair pros to help fix the issue so the devices you use most aren’t out of commission for long.

  • Anton was punctual. He was prepared to find the problem, and he found it. He was very candid. I would welcome him back if he were scheduled to replace the defective part. He helped me locate the Customer Service for LG and coached me on the information that I needed to present to LG.
