We keep your appliances working throughout the year.

Summer and winter vacation can cause extra strain on your devices with kids out of school and more at home and college students returning from American Intercontinental University and other universities.

Whether you're grabbing a cool drink from the fridge after a long day at Northwestern Woods or you're cleaning all the clothes and towels from a camping weekend, your devices have their work out for them.

It's key to keep an eye on your appliances, especially those that work hard all year round. For example, refrigerators are constantly running in order to keep food fresh, but the average 92-degree summer days make it work even harder. Meanwhile, ovens and stoves may have a bigger workload throughout lows of 13 degrees in winter months generating more heat needed to cook.

We use appliance repair professionals who are trained to keep the household appliances that keep your home running smoothly.

From General Electric fridges to Kenmore water heaters, 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.
