4 Tips to Keep Your Appliances Running This Winter

With the holiday season creeping up on us again, it is important to give those appliances the tender, love, and care they deserve so you’ll be able to entertain worry free! Follow these tips in order to get your appliances ready this December holiday season.

1.       Maintain Your Oven

Self-Cleaning: If your oven contains a self-cleaning cycle, it is important to implement this every once in a while when you feel your oven needs a nice deep clean. The self- cleaning cycle is heated at a high temperature that causes the food to soil inside the oven, decompose, and turn into ashes.

2.       Oven Thermostat

Oven Thermostat: If you haven’t done so already, now would be the perfect time to make sure the oven thermostat is operating efficiently. That last thing you want is a frozen ham or turkey for the holidays.

3.       Refrigerator Tips

Door Gasket/Seal: Winter is actually the perfect season to take care of your refrigerator. Some refrigerator models contain vents that need to be maintained regularly. Clean the door seal/gasket, the drain, and the drain pan are all parts that need regular maintenance.

Outdoor Refrigerator: Make sure your outdoor refrigerator is cleaned out and unplugged. Refrigerators are not able to sustain cold outdoor temperatures. If you do plan on keeping your refrigerator plugged it you increase the likelihood of the water and ice lines freezing and the refrigerator will have a difficult time keep the content inside at a proper temperature.

4.       Safeguard Your Dryer

Dryer Lint Vent: Check your dryer for lint clogs. A buildup of lint can cause a fire!

Lint Screen: Also be sure to thoroughly clean the lint screen once a week. Remove the lint screen completely and clear out all of the lingering lint particles!
