There are various types of appliances throughout the Greater Houston area that are in need of appliance repair. Are there any problems that appliances have that are specific to the Houston region? For instance, does the hotter weather affect refrigerator efficiency? Or how does humidity affect dryer production?
Houston weather and household appliances facts:
1) Dryers. As we all know, humidity is an issue in Houston throughout the year. To assist in your air conditioning production, we recommend making sure your dryer is in proper working order and your vents are venting outside and kept cleaned and cleared. How can this be done? Connect your vents properly and make sure your ducts are cleared. Restricting airflow to your dryer causes multiple issues and is one of our highest repair requests.
2) Refrigerators can be taxed when subject to heat and humidity. Make sure you keep your house cool and your condenser coils cleaned. We recommend professional condenser coil cleaning. If you want to do so yourself, check with your owner's manual. Also, we recommend in higher temperatures and humidity to shut off the power saver on your refrigeration appliance. When it is humid, condensation makes doors sweat and causes gaskets to grow mildew.
3) Washing machine care in Houston. Houston water can be harsh and full of chemicals which cause residue and water valve issues. Make sure you have it flushed on a regular basis. Make sure your washing machine is level at all times and not overloaded.
