Refrigerator Repair

Extend the life of your appliance with this easy refrigerator maintenance.

Purchasing a quality refrigerator is a great investment into your kitchen. Not only will it provide space to store your culinary creations, but it can also bring style and a unique look to your kitchen. To make sure your refrigerator lasts as long as possible, there are some easy maintenance tips you can follow to help avoid refrigerator repair.

Keep the Inside & Outside Clean

Keep your refrigerator as clean as possible on the inside and out. Routinely discarding old and out of date food items will help keep fresh food last longer. Take a damp sponge or cloth and wipe down the shelves and doors (inside and out). This will eliminate potential bacteria growth which will keep your family healthy and happy.

Conserve Energy

When taking things out of the refrigerator, make sure you are not leaving the door open for extended periods of time. This will cause the refrigerator to run to keep the items inside cool for long periods of time which can increase your electric bill and potentially cause food stored inside to go bad.

Clean the Condenser Coils to avoid refrigerator repair

When the condenser coils are dusty, the refrigerator has to work harder which can translate into higher electricity bills and a shorter life expectancy of the refrigerator. An easy way to clean the coils is to use a vacuum or broom to remove dust. You should try to incorporate this into your cleaning routine once every three months. Typically the coils on your refrigerator are located on the bottom or behind your refrigerator.

Change the Water Filter

If your refrigerator has an ice maker and water dispenser, it is important to change the filter on a regular basis. Typically the filter is changed once every six months but you should check with your refrigerator owner’s manual for the correct recommended time.

Is your appliance acting up.  Is your ice cream a little soft or your ice maker struggling to keep up.  If you need assistance with any of these maintenance tips or find that your refrigerator is on the fritz, contact SoBellas Appliance Repair today — they’re the experts in refrigerator repair and maintenance.  Call the guys with the yellow booties today.

Getting Your Appliances Repaired Before the Holidays

As leaves and temperature drop together, the imminence of the holiday season draws every closer. For some people, the holidays may still seem like miles away while others can practically taste their mother’s famous apple pie that she makes every year for the annual family gathering. Of course, nothing wears your appliances down more than exposure to the constant cooking, washing, and general activity of visiting family. Whether the holidays are hosted at your house this year or you’re simply getting a head start on baking cookies for all your coworkers, now is the perfect time to get ahead of the inevitable holiday rush on appliance repairs. Any trouble you’d like taken care of before new years should probably be arranged now because the repair professionals will soon be stacked with last-minute emergency calls from less prepared hosts.

Check Your Cooking Appliances

If there’s one thing everyone does over the holiday season, no matter what background or traditional culture, it’s cook special holiday foods and eat together. While you may have been fine with that one sparking burner or broken timer feature when it was just you cooking, the last thing you want is for someone unfamiliar with your stove to get hurt or burn something. Before you call in, do a full check of your three major cooking appliances.

Check each burner of the stove for even heating and response to the knob, then turn them all off. Next, check and make sure your oven is heating all the way across its heating elements and that the light works. Now, test the digital display. A short in the display could indicate deeper potential problems. Lastly, run your microwave once and make a note if the screen flickers, and if you use a toaster or toaster oven, now is a good time to test them as well.

Inspecting Clothing Washer and Dryer

The ability to wash clothes is incredibly important when you have family visiting as they’re likely to only have a few changes of clothes packed. Having guests over for the holidays can sometimes more than triple your laundry machine usage, so you’ll want to your set to be as robust and ready as possible. If the spin drum in either your washer or dryer bumps, if there’s a problem with the display, or if your dryer isn’t fully drying things, these are all signs that you might need an appliance maintenance visit to get your washer and dryer ready for the greater holiday usage. YOu may also want to wipe these down as residual soap, lint, and hair can build up on the insides while dust and spilled detergent often hit the outside.

AC, Water Heater, Furnace

Some of your appliances you use every day but never actually look at. Your air conditioner, for instance, probably won’t get a ton of use this holiday season, but while we’re talking repairs you might as well have it inspected and change the filter. Then there’s the furnace or whatever your home uses to spread heat around. Tending to the furnace or your home’s heater equivalent, on the other hand, is vital to prevent your guests from becoming relative-scicles. Along the same lines, doubling or even tripling the number of people showering in your home can put extra stress on the water heater. Have it inspected, flushed, the filter changed, and repairs done, if necessary.

Having gone down the necessities checklist for holiday host appliances, with a single call to your favorite repair service, your home should be one step closer to being ready to host countless family members and their children. And hey, with your water heater and washer in top condition, now is the perfect time to wash all those extra linens.

Have You Heard the Dark and Dirty Secret… about Your Air Conditioner System?

Secrets about your air conditioner system.Have You Heard the Dark and Dirty Secret… about Your Home Comfort System?

A lot of folks in my industry don’t really want to talk about the #1 Reason for air conditioner system failure.  But let me give you a hint:  when I say it’s a “dark and dirty” secret, I do mean dirty!

That’s right.  It’s not age. Or brand. Or weather hazards. Or constant adjustments of the thermostat.  Nope.  The #1 Reason for air conditioner system or  refrigerated air failure is dirt.

When you think about it, it should be no surprise why this reason isn’t exactly well-known among homeowners.  The fact is, a new system costs thousands of dollars. Yet regular maintenance to prevent system failure is just pennies on the dollar. Get the picture?

So that’s why SoBellas Home Services is making a strong effort to let this secret out of the bag.
