In most cases it is going to be much more economical and eco-friendly to repair your appliance than it would be to replace it. Most issues with appliances can be fixed fairly inexpensively compared to what it would cost to replace the entire unit. Once repaired you can often get many more years of life out of the appliance, which makes it well worth the investment.
Repairing your appliance also helps to minimize the amount of non-biodegradable waste that goes into the landfills. As long as you are happy with the overall performance of your appliance while it is working properly, then repairing it is almost always going to be the right choice.
A refrigerator should never run out of Freon because it works in a closed system. If your refrigerator is low, it means you actually have a leak somewhere in the system, so adding more isn’t a solution. Instead, we will come out to identify where the leak is located and get it fixed before adding any more coolant. The exact price will depend on what type of refrigerator you have, and where the leak is located. Contact us for a free estimate.
There are quite a few different things that can cause your washer or dryer to shake. Most commonly it is simply that you are putting too many clothes in a single load.

When it comes to keeping your home safe, there are a few different items that you should have in place and working at all times. The following should be installed and checked regularly to ensure you and your family are safe:
- Fire Extinguisher – A small in-home fire extinguisher is essential for putting out house fires before they get too big.
- Shutoff Valves – Every gas appliance should have its own shutoff valve in case of a leak.
- Smoke Detectors – Smoke detectors can provide an early warning of trouble so you can evacuate or put out a fire before there is danger.
- Carbon Monoxide Detectors – Carbon monoxide detectors can warn you if there is a carbon monoxide leak somewhere in the home. This deadly gas is odorless, which is why a detector is so important.

SQuickly put a pan lid over the flames to smother the fire. Remove the heat source as well so that the fire won’t reignite when the lid is removed. You can also use baking soda to extinguish this type of fire. You should not, however, use water as this will just serve to spread the fire around. Of course, you should have a fire extinguisher located in the kitchen, which can be used as long as it is certified for use on grease fires.
Each appliance should come with care and cleaning instructions, and those should be followed whenever possible. In general, however, ovens and stoves should be cleaned by hand. Make sure you clean out any vents and filters once every three months or so. Garbage disposals can be cleaned by running cold water down while letting it run for several minutes. Add a cut up lemon while running to help deodorize.
