Summer and winter vacation can cause extra strain on your devices with children at home more and college students back home from Samuel Merritt University and other universities.

The summer heat and cooler spring weather in Oakland can be uncomfortable, and beating the elements can lead to additional strain on your refrigerator, washing machine, and other appliances. Located in the East Bay area, Oakland’s temperate, coastal climate can get chilly with an average temperature around 68 degrees. East Bay appliance repair professionals are experts in the region and can help you fix any issues with your water heater, dryer, and any other devices you need to beat the cold.

It's essential 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 93-degree summer days make it work even harder. Meanwhile, ovens and stoves may have a bigger workload throughout lows of 46 degrees in winter months generating more heat needed to cook.

Whether it's summer or winter, maintaining the health of your appliances is always a good idea. Routine maintenance can extend the life of your appliances and avoid expensive repairs down the line. And, when it comes to home appliances, being safe is always better than sorry. Get in touch with us today if you need home appliance repair or service in Oakland.
