Bayport Washer Repair Man Updates Fleet Appliance Blog with Information about Front Loading Washers

The new high efficiency front loading washers are all the rage and rightly so, handling larger loads, using less water and they are easier on clothes












Bayport NY – The local washer repair man with Fleet Appliance Repair keeps up with the latest technology to ensure quality service for all appliances, old and new. From grandma’s old wringer washer to the new, high-efficiency (HE) front loading models, he knows them all and can fix most problems.

There was a time when front loading washing machines were only seen in public laundry facilities. Now they can be found in many homes. One of the common problems addressed by the washer repair man is odor. It is easy to keep the door open to air out a top loader, but with front loaders, the open door can get in the way. Unfortunately, it is necessary to leave it open as much as possible to allow moisture to escape. The warm, wet interior is a hotbed for mold and mildew to grow.

According to service technicians with Fleet Appliance Repair, (http://www.fleetappliance.com) one of the best ways to care for an HE washer is to only use “high efficiency” detergent. It may cost more, but so did the machine! The super concentrated HE detergent produces fewer suds and has less fragrance than regular detergents. The suds produced by regular detergents acts like sludge to water draining out of the tub.

The washer repair man suggests using bleach mixed with water to wipe down the interior of the machine, inside the door and around the rubber door seal. Water can sit in the small grooves and allow mildew to grow, causing odor.

Some front loader washers have a “tub clean” feature. Those that do not should be cleaned once a month by running the machine empty, on its hottest cycle, with bleach and water.

The neighborhood washer repair man warns residents about the danger of trying to fix a washer without proper knowledge. The combination of water and electricity make this a hazardous endeavor for someone who doesn’t know what they are doing. If the unit is still under warranty, then the coverage can be denied if they should do further damage. It is best to call a qualified service technician when their expertise is needed.

New Dryer Buying Guide from Fleet Appliance Repair Bayport

Which new features are the best and which ones can consumers do well enough without?





Bayport NY – Fleet Appliance Repair technicians are qualified to service most brands of clothes dryers. Owner, Bob Dougherty, is often asked for advice about buying a new dryer. New features with clothes dryers are making them more efficient than ever before and consumers want to know how to get the most for their money when buying a new one.

When asked about new features, Bob Dougherty gives his expert opinion. Though it has little to do with overall performance, one thing people consider when purchasing new appliances is noise. According to Dougherty, dryers by Bosch, Fisher & Paykel or Whirlpool operate so quietly it is easy to forget they are running. People start them and forget until the machine buzzes to indicate the job is done.

The best clothes dryers are those with LED displays and other options and advance settings. Bob suggests choosing a dryer with features to reduce wrinkles and eliminate the need to iron clothes. Bob explains how the advanced feature of reverse tumble action causes fewer wrinkles.

Fleet Appliance (http://www.fleetappliance.com) is often called for dryer repair service when old clothes dryers begin to take longer to do the job. Reduced efficiency with dryers is rarely an indicator of age and wear, so one of Bob’s top tips for dryer owners is to have the dryer vent system serviced regularly to remove lint accumulation and promote adequate airflow required for the dryer to function properly.

The Bayport appliance repair man enjoys sharing information with his customers about new appliance features and which ones are well worth having. Technicians with Fleet Appliance Repair receive ongoing education to keep up to date with new technologies so they can provide top notch appliance service to all their customers.

What Bayport Consumers Need to Know Before Calling for Appliance Repair

A simple troubleshooting check list may reveal the solution and save a service call




Bayport, NY – Appliance breakdown cannot always be avoided; however, consumers should take a careful look at things before calling the appliance repair man. People are busy so they often overlook the obvious when appliances fail to function. Most people take their appliances for granted…set the dial, push the button and it should work.

But what if it doesn’t? The first thing Bob Dougherty, owner of Fleet Appliance Repair (http://www.fleetappliance.com) suggests checking is the power supply. Though it sounds too simple, many customers have been embarrassed when the appliance service provider just plugs the unit in to get it working. Maybe someone just did some spring cleaning and unplugged the appliance to clean around and behind it, or maybe the cat brushed by and loosened the connection.

Consumers can easily become frustrated; however, if they are able to resolve the problem themselves, they just might save some money and eliminate the need for the Appliance Repair service.

The instruction manual that comes with new appliances will have a troubleshooting section with possible solutions to common problems. If the owner is unable to find a solution, then they need to call a service technician.

Fleet Appliance Repair Bayport is known for being honest and dependable. Bob enjoys building positive relationships with his customers and they appreciate the valuable tips and information he offers while he services their appliances. “If I see something going on that could cause a problem, I advise the customer of the issue,” said Bob. “Customers appreciate the advice and refer their friends and relatives to me when they need appliance repair service.”

Bayport Residents Enjoy Valuable Information from the Friendly Neighborhood Appliance Repair Man

Consumers are tightening their belts in a weak economy, choosing to repair their existing appliances when they would really like to be able to purchase a new one





In spite of current economic conditions, Bob Dougherty, owner of Fleet Appliance Repair Bayport has noticed an increase in demand for his service “People are hesitant to spend the money on new appliances when their existing appliances can be repaired for much less,” said Dougherty.

According to Dougherty, before the recession, people were comfortable with the idea of buying a new appliance if the repair costs of their existing appliance would be more than 50% of the purchase price of a new appliance. “There are many good reasons for buying new appliances, including energy efficient features, technical improvements and sleek looks,” said Dougherty. “But, today, people are saving every cent they can as they seek a reliable appliance repair service.”

Buying new appliances is not only expensive, but time consuming. The owner must choose a model that matches their home décor, then arrange deliver, installation, and disposal of the old appliances. Once installed, they must take the time to read the manual and become familiar with the knobs, dials and features.

The Bayport Appliance Repair man advises consumers to do their research before hiring an appliance repair service. “Look for a company with a great level of experience and a reputation for customer satisfaction,” said Dougherty. “Check with the Better Business Bureau for complaint reports. Most importantly, make sure they are licensed and insured and authorized to work on your appliances.”

Moisture in the refrigerator compartment? Refrigerator leaking?

Moisture in the refrigerator compartment?

 

Why is there dew or sweat in the refrigerator compartment?

Some moisture in the refrigerator compartment and crispers is normal. Light sweat or humidity may build on interior walls, shelves, bottles, jars and other containers in the refrigerator compartment.

 

Moisture in Main Refrigerator Compartment

 

Excess moisture can be a result of the following:

Opening the doors frequently

Opening the doors frequently can cause sweat or dew to build in the refrigerator compartment. When the doors are opened, humid room air enters the refrigerator. The more often the doors are opened, the faster the humidity builds. Opening the doors less often will help, but may not completely eliminate internal moisture.

Humid environment

During months of high humidity (especially if a home is not air-conditioned), it is normal for some sweat or moisture to build inside the refrigerator when the room air is humid.

Blocked air vents

Make sure the air vents between the freezer and refrigerator compartments are not blocked. See images below. Objects blocking the vents will cause a decrease in proper air circulation, which can cause temperature and moisture problems. Move any items that could be blocking the vents.

Poor gasket seal

Moisture buildup around the door or on the ceiling suggests an air leak, likely due to a gasket problem. The door gasket should seal all the way around on the door. Make sure that nothing is keeping the gasket from making a good seal.

Moisture in Crisper Bins

Crispers are designed to hold moisture in order to keep vegetables fresh.

•             Washing foods before putting them in the crisper can cause excess moisture to form inside the crisper. To control moisture buildup, allow produce to dry on a towel after it is washed, before it is placed in the crisper. Excess moisture could cause produce to prematurely spoil.

•             On models with a moisture control on the front of the crisper, adjust the setting to low humidity or the fruit setting.  Refer to your Use and Care Guide for additional instructions and information about this feature.

Appliance Repair Bayport - Money Saving Tips


Appliance Repair Service in Bayport Provides Energy Saving Tips for Consumers

Bayport Appliance Repair Man Explains Energy Star Rating for Appliances: Every appliance has two prices: the sticker price, and the one you pay to run the appliance year-round. Considering that a minor expense today could translate into huge savings tomorrow, you’ll want to know your options before buying your next major home appliance.

So what appliances are energy-efficient? ENERGY STAR certified appliances (a joint program between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] and the U.S. Department of Energy) are ones that use less energy. In 2007, Americans bought enough ENERGY STAR appliances to limit emissions equivalent to green house gases from 27 million cars — all the while saving $16 billion on their utility bills, or roughly one-third their annual utility cost (source: ENERGY STAR).

If you’re trying to both increase efficiency and boost the resale value of your home, look for machines that have earned the ENERGY STAR label, meaning they have met strict energy-efficiency guidelines. It’s also important to check the Energy Guide labels on appliances to see consumption rates for that model expressed in annual kilowatt hours and the approximate annual cost of running the appliance.

Bob Dougherty of Fleet appliances, Suffolk County, Long Island says appliances account for a fair percentage of a household’s annual electricity use. Since most of our nation’s electricity is generated from fossil fuels (such as coal and natural gas), which contribute to global warming and air and water pollution, replacing older appliances with more efficient Energy Star-rated models can go a long way toward reducing your environmental impact. However, these appliances are only as efficient as the person using them. No matter what model appliance you own, there are easy ways to make sure it is using as little electricity as possible:

Refrigerator/Freezer

• Keep your refrigerator away from heat sources (including dishwashers, ovens, heating vents, and direct sunlight), which cause it to work harder to keep its contents cold.
• Leave a few inches of space behind the refrigerator to ensure proper air circulation around the condenser coils, and vacuum the coils at least once a year.
• Open the door as little as possible to minimize the amount of cold air that escapes.
• Don’t keep your refrigerator or freezer too cold, which can waste energy. Recommended temperatures are between 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit (ºF) for refrigerators and 5 ºF for freezers.
• Keep the refrigerator and freezer full to better retain the cold. If your refrigerator is fairly empty, store water-filled containers inside.

Dishwasher

• Run the dishwasher only when it is full (but don’t overfill it).
• Choose the air-dry option instead of heat-dry. If your machine does not have an air-dry option, simply open the door when the final rinse cycle is complete
• Check to see if your dishwasher has an internal heater (which heats incoming water to 140 ºF or higher). If it does, you can lower your home’s water heater temperature to 120 ºF

Washer

• Use cold water for washing and rinsing clothes to reduce electricity use by up to 90 percent. If you must use hot water for a wash, use cold water for the rinse cycle.
• Wash full loads of laundry as much as possible. Wash smaller loads only if you can select a lower water level.
• Use your washer’s high-speed spin cycle to extract the most moisture possible from your clothing, which will reduce drying time.

Dryer

• Dry heavier and lighter items separately to reduce overall drying time.
• Dryer vents clog and should be checked and cleaned annually if needed. They should also have the proper material installed to prevent fires. Also clean the internal lint filter after every load. This will reduce drying time and save energy.
• Whenever possible, dry multiple loads of laundry in a row—each subsequent load will use the residual heat from the previous load. Use the cool-down cycle for the last load to allow the clothes to finish drying with residual heat.
