How to Prepare Your Appliances During Winter

Posted on: No Comments

At home, we depend on having our appliances working perfectly, especially during the winter. Some daily tasks, like cooking and doing the laundry, are harder when our appliances don’t work. The winter time makes doing daily tasks a lot harder because they haven’t been prepared for the low temperatures. The cold weather can damage any appliances due to electrical issues and freezing pipes. To prevent you appliances from doing so, here are some ways to prepare your appliances for winter. We also encourage you to call Able Appliance for more help if needed.

Running Water Through Washers:

A simple tip would be to run water through your washer and dryer. The lingering water in these appliances can lead to freezing pipes, or even burst in your home. You can minimize those problems by having the water run through the washer and dryer at least once a week.

Protect Appliances by Temperature Changes:

No matter how strange this may sound, the temperature of your home may be the reason your appliances are stalling. To protect all of your electronics this winter, you should think about making your home a little cooler.

Protect Against Damaged Wiring:

Damaged wiring in appliances is a leading cause of home fires. Make sure all of the wiring in your appliances are properly examined to guarantee that they will be working great during the winter weather. This is very important for appliances like space heaters because they don’t get used as frequent in the warmer months, but may present problems in colder months.
