Get your devices in working order during the summer heat and winter cold.

Winter and summer vacation can place additional demands on your burdens, with your kids spending more time at home and college students returning from Maryland University Of Integrative Health or other universities.

Summer activities like taking the family to Merriweather Symphony of Lights or going for a swim help you beat the warm temperatures and humidity, but appliances, like your washing machine, also need to be prepared to meet your needs after fall and spring hiking trips.

It's vital to keep an eye on your appliances, especially those that work hard all year round. For example, refrigerators are constantly running in order to maintain fresh food, but the average 95-degree summer days make it work even harder. Meanwhile, ovens and stoves may have a greater workload throughout lows of 27 degrees in winter months generating more heat needed to cook.

We find repair professionals to help fix the issue so the appliances you rely on aren’t having issues for long.

From Kenmore refrigerators to General Electric dishwashers, a few easy actions can help extend the lifespan of your appliance. Whether your appliance is new or you've had it for a while, read through the manual, watch a tutorial, or get professional advice to know how to best clean each appliance. It's also smart to keep track of when to repair rather than replace. Don't assume your breaking down appliance is past saving. Save yourself the expense of a brand-new appliance by properly cleaning and caring for your appliances.
