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

School's out and college students are back home from Trinity International University-Illinois and other universities for the summer or winter vacation, and a busier home means more work for your appliances.

Whether everyone's grabbing a cool beverage from the fridge after a big day at Northwestern Woods or you are laundering all the towels and clothes from a weekend of camping, your appliances have their work out for them.

Your home is your sanctuary, but it also works hard for you. The appliances in your house work hard all year long, but temperature shifts can often make them work harder. Refrigerators may get more use in Northbrook'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.

We have appliance repair professionals who know how to keep the devices you rely on running smoothly.
