grill repair in Long IslandPreparing a barbecue for the spring is important. There is a good chance that recent good weather has had you already draining out the last bit of gas from last season and firing up the grill already. If you need Viking or Lynx grill repair, call our experts. We can help get your barbecue running smoothly deep into the fall. That said we wanted to look at some things you can do before the season really gets underway to ensure a smooth run with limited Viking grill repair or Lynx grill maintenance.

  • Clean Your Grill: You should scrub the interior of your grill with a dry brush or sponge. As far as the outside some hot water and deep cleaners can take a lot of grease off the surface. Do not simply “burn off” grime.
  • Check the Gas: Check every area that gas is distributed from and to for leaks. You can do this by covering the tank, valves, and hoses with soap water and looking for bubbles. Check the gas levels in a tank by checking it with a gauge or comparing its weight using a simple bathroom scale.
  • Find Your Grill’s Hot Spots: Cover a grill with slices of white bread and run it. By inspecting these slices of bread you will find the areas that are cooking unevenly and those that are running hottest.

washer-dryer repairSome Long Islanders will take a broken clothes dryer in stride and setup a clothesline. Line drying clothes is an option for sure but with the relatively damp winter and no signs of that slowing down this spring and summer it might be misguided. When you really think about it calling in the expertise of our washer-dryer repair in Long Island can save you a lot of trouble.

Line drying takes time. While you save a small amount of money on your electric bill you lose time waiting to complete laundry day chores and getting clothes back where they belong. If you leave the house for a while as your clothes air dry you risk having your clothes stolen or simply carried away by a strong breeze. Those strong breezes have also resulted in a lot of much needed second wash cycles. Chances are you do not have time to wash and re-wash your clothes.

The convenience of a clothes dryer and the affordability of washer-dryer repairs are pretty much undeniable. You have a shorter dry time, capability of special cycles for delicates or heavy loads, fluffy warm clothes – and no advertising to the neighbots of your unmentionables.

Long Island stove repairCosts of everything seem to always be skyrocketing. For families in Long Island the increases in energy and food costs can be an incredible strain on your annual budgets. With no sign of those things going down in price any time soon many of us have to find other areas to cut back.

If you are trying to save gas or electricity being used by your stove there are three easy tips that can help prevent the necessity of stove repair in Long Island while saving you some money.

  • Metal Pots and Pans: If your cookware is clay it might be aesthetically pleasing but it is not a good conductor of heat. Leave the clay pots and pans as decorative pieces and do your cooking in cookware made out of stainless steel or other metals.
  • Cookware That Covers the Flame or Element: Using a pan smaller than the flame or element allows heat to escape around the pan. Use a pan or pot that fully covers whatever size flame or element you happen to be using.
  • Colorless or Blue Flames: The flames you are cooking with should be colorless or blue. A yellow or red flame indicates that incomplete burning is taking place and you might need some Long Island stove repair expertise.
  • Replace Failing Elements: If the electric coils for the burners or oven glow unevenly or have areas of damage that look melted, they are not working to full capacity and will need to run longer to reach proper cooking temperature. This can be easily remedied by calling on our experts for Long Island stove repair

washer-dryer repair in Long IslandFor most Long Islanders the washer and dryer set in our homes are well built by reputable manufacturers dedicated to making durable and efficient machines. Of course that does not guarantee you will never require washing machine repair or maintenance. It merely means that your appliance should last a long time as long as you treat it properly.

Part of that includes not taking certain unnecessary risks when using your washer and dryer. One risk that often creates a headache for homeowners is clothing that is labeled “dry clean only.” Those items can be easily damaged on even the softest cycle of a well made washing machine. No amount of Samsung appliance repair will fix a damaged suit. Do not take these kinds of risks.

Another thing to never do when washing clothes is use an excessive amount of detergent. Not only can extra detergent wash out your clothes or leave unsightly discoloration on them, over time it can gum up the machine itself creating a risk of mildew growth. In the same vein a costly and over aggressive heating cycle can be damaging to a clothes dryer and clothing. Avoid those.

While not doing the above will not protect you from ever needing some kind of washer-dryer repairs these tips will help your clothes and appliances last longer.

fridge repairIf you think your refrigerator is working fine but is maybe not as efficient as it could be you are probably right. Of course regular maintenance and Sub-Zero refrigerator repair are one kind of solution but there are other ways that you can make things run better as well.

Here are some tips from your favorite Long Island refrigerator repair experts to help make your fridge more efficient:

  • Vacuum the Back of the Fridge: Those coils in the back of your fridge help pull heat away from your fridge itself. Dust makes these work slower and makes the fridge use more energy.
  • Let Food Cool: Before putting something hot into your fridge let it cool. Hot food will raise the temperature of your fridge exponentially.
  • Cover Food: By limiting the moisture in moving around your fridge you allow your entire fridge to run more smoothly.
  • Check the Door Seal: The seal around the door of some refrigerators becomes ineffective over time. This is a great time to call us up for a replacement seal.
  • Add Water Bottles to Fill Space: Your fridge cannot cool empty air but will try very hard to do so. Adding a few water bottles to the biggest gaps in your fridge can improve its cooling ability nicely.

Highlighting our Long Island dishwasher repair service a few weeks back has us thinking about ways that we can all make these appliances run more efficiently. Even the best appliance brands can end up having problems but far too often we are called in for Samsung, LG, or Viking appliance repairs when some better habits would have avoided the call altogether. Here are some tips on running your dishwasher more efficiently and effectively:

  • Use the Correct Cycle: You might want to cut corners but it is best to use the proper levels when washing dishes. Lightly soiled dishes should not receive the maximum setting.
  • Do Not Overload: Overloading a dishwasher is one of the biggest problems. There is a limited amount of slots in those wracks for a reason. Use them as they are laid out to assure you do not need to run a second cycle.
  • Scrape Those Plates: While some go overboard by washing dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, scraping off those food chunks is still incredibly important.
  • Make Sure Water Is Hot: Run the sink for a few seconds to warm up water before you get the dishwasher going. Hot water cleans and it takes a little while for the water to heat up.
