We keep appliances in working order during the heat of summer and cold of winter.

Winter and summer vacation can put extra strain on your appliances, with your children out of school and spending more time at home and university students coming home from Duquesne University or other universities.

Whether everyone wants a refreshing drink from the refrigerator after a big day at The Salvation Army's Camp Allegheny or you're cleaning all the towels and clothes from a camping weekend, your devices have their work out for them.

While it’s a good idea to have working appliances year-round, some are more susceptible to seasonal issues than others. Your fridge works hard to keep your food fresh, but it’s especially taxed in the summer when 91-degree temperatures cause it to run more frequently. Conversely, your stove and oven are put to more use in winter, which sees an average temperature of 18 degrees, to cook your holiday feasts, which can put a strain on its components.

We find appliance repair professionals that can help fix the issue so you don't have to go without the appliances you use most.
