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

Summer and winter vacation is a busy time for your appliances with children at home more and college students returning from California State University-Fullerton and other colleges.

Whether you're grabbing an icy beverage from the refrigerator after a long day at Firestone Scout Reservation or using your washing machine to clean all the laundry that get you through from a weekend of camping, your devices need to be ready.

Your home is your sanctuary, but it’s also a machine. The appliances in your house work hard throughout the year, but seasonal changes can put more strain on them. Refrigerators work harder in Placentia's 94-degree summer high temperatures, as thirsty or snack-prone kids and college students return home. Ovens and stoves, on the other hand, see more action in winter and over the holidays, when temps can sink to average lows of 53 degrees.

No matter the season, having your appliances serviced by a professional is always a good idea. Regular maintenance can extend the life of your appliances and avoid costly repairs down the road. 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 Placentia. We're here to assist you with keeping your house operating smoothly throughout the year.
