Spring Heat

We're all thrilled that warmer weather is finally on its way. There are a lot of things we love to do in the warmer weather but cleaning probably isn't among them.Unfortunately, appliances do need to be cleaned to run effectively and they work harder the warmer the weather gets. Refrigerators and freezers use a condenser that basically removes heat from the air in the appliance. In order for this to work effectively and efficiently, all parts of this need to remain clean and unobstructed. Over time the unit can become clogged with animal hair and dust making it harder for it to dissipate the heat it pulls from the appliance. This makes the unit work harder making it less efficient and more prone to failure due to the higher temperatures the unit will reach.


Take a look at your owner’s manual to find the recommended cleaning method for your particular appliance. Please note that this is considered routine maintenance so it is not covered under manufacturer’s warranty. If you want to make sure the cleaning is done properly or you don’t feel like being covered in dust and animal hair, give us a call!
