We keep your devices working throughout the year.

Students are coming home from North Carolina Central University and other colleges, and school is out for the little ones—making for a busy time of year for your appliances.

Summer activities like taking the family to Piper Creek Campground or taking a dip help you escape the warm temperatures and humidity, but appliances, like your washer and dryer, also need to be ready to meet your needs after fall and spring hiking trips. No matter which city you live in, you’re lucky to be close to many outdoor adventures, like the Neuse River Trail and Lake Johnson Park. No one wants to return after a day of adventure to find their ice maker or washing machine broken, but if you do, you’ll know you can call on Raleigh-Durham appliance repair, and we’ll be there in a flash. Our Raleigh appliance repair experts cover both areas and can take care of your problem quickly and professionally.

Your home is your comfort zone, but it’s also a machine. Your appliances work all year long, but seasonal changes can tax them further. For instance, refrigerators get more use when average temps reach 97 degrees, while ovens and stoves need to work extra hard during the winters that can reach lows of 33 degrees.

We offer appliance repair professionals who know how to keep the household appliances you use most running smoothly.
