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

Winter and summer vacation can place additional demands on your appliances, with your children at home more and college students returning home from Kansas City University Of Medicine And Biosciences and other schools.

Summer fun such as spending time at Happy Camping Mama or taking a dip help you beat the hot and humid weather, but devices, like your washer and dryer, also need to be prepared to meet your needs after fall and spring hiking trips.

Your home is your sanctuary, 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 Independence's 94-degree summer high temperatures, as thirsty or snack-prone kids and college students return home. Stoves and ovens, on the other hand, work harder in winter and over the holidays, when temps can sink to average lows of 21 degrees.

We have appliance repair professionals who can help keep the household appliances you rely on up and running.
