In any season, be confident your appliances are working properly.

In summer and winter break, you will have to keep an eye on your frequently used appliances, with kids spending more time at home and college students coming home from School Of The Art Institute Of Chicago and other schools.

Whether you want a cool drink from the refrigerator after a fun day at Oriental Traditional Medical Center or you're washing and drying all the clothes and towels from a weekend camping trip, your appliances have their work out for them. Chicago’s weather takes its toll, too. The summers are beautiful and temperate with an average temperature of 72 degrees. Residents take pride in surviving these brutal summers, but it can also be tough on your appliances, like refrigerators. In the gorgeous summers, who has time to worry about appliance repair in Chicago? You’re too busy enjoying free concerts at Millennium Park or hitting the beaches of Lake Michigan.

Your home is where you relax, but it’s also a machine. The appliances in your house work hard throughout the year, but temperature shifts can present additional strain. Refrigerators may get more use in Chicago's 92-degree summer high temperatures, as thirsty or snack-prone kids and college students return home. Stoves and ovens, on the other hand, see more action in winter and over the holidays, when temps can sink to average lows of 13 degrees.

ProConnect finds appliance repair professionals that can help fix the issue so you don't have to go without the devices you rely on.
