Heading Back to School with Help from Speedy

Back-to-school time means a lot of things for your family. For the kids, it probably means that the summer fun is over, and they’re a little sad to sit in a classroom all day again. For Mom and Dad, it probably means that you’ll have an eight-hour break from your little pride and joys each day. Thing is, your back-to-school mornings can be made or broken by your refrigerator. If you don’t really see why, let us explain.

Back-to-school time means more meal preparation.

Kids can eat… a lot. You’ll need to spend plenty time each morning making healthy breakfasts and lunches for your kids to make sure they’re getting the proper nutrients from the food they’re eating. If your refrigerator freezes your food or suddenly stopping working, your meal prep will be totally disrupted.

Back-to-school time means after-school activities.

Soccer practice, dance classes, chess tournaments — the list goes on. Your kids will have plenty of after-school activities that they’ll need you to get them to and from, so you’re not going to have time to wait around for a refrigerator repairman. That’s where Speedy comes in! We offer service within the hour for homes on Long Island and in Queens. Plus all those activities can tighten your wallet, so it’s a good thing we offer coupons to save you money on our services!

If you’re in need of same-day refrigerator repair services on Long Island or in Queens, call Speedy Refrigerator Service. We offer quality repairs at affordable prices and even stock 99% of parts in our “warehouse on wheels” so we can have your repairs done quickly.

How to Fix Your Wine Cooler

When you’re a frequent party host, you learn very quickly that all it takes to have a good time is good company and good wine. But if your wine fridge suddenly goes on the fritz, you may be left with warm Pinot Grigio and salty guests. That’s when you should call Speedy Refrigerator Service to help fix your wine cooler.

How to Fix Your Wine Cooler

If Your Wine Cooler Won’t Cool

  • Check that the thermostat is set to the proper temperature. If it’s set to the correct temperature and your unit is still not cooling, you may have a faulty thermostat. You should call Speedy for a quick replacement since we stock 99% of parts in our ‘warehouse on wheels.”
  • Check that the door is fully closed and there is nothing wrong with the gasket. If it’s torn or worn down in any areas, it will let cool air out of your unit. To fix your wine cooler, you’ll need to have the broken gasket replaced.

If Your Wine Cooler is Too Noisy:

  • Check how much space is around your cooler. If it is too close to a wall and doesn’t have enough ventilation room, it could work harder to function, producing more noise than necessary. You should aim to have a few inches of space on each side of your unit to avoid this.

If Your Wine Cooler is Leaking:

  • Check for air leaks. These can cause extra moisture to build up in your wine cooler and lead to water leaks. You’ll need to fix the air leaks to stop the problem.
  • Check your drain pipe. If there is a clog, condensation has nowhere to go and can leak back into your unit. Call Speedy to unclog the pipe in order to get water draining properly again.

These are only some of the reasons your unit could be acting up. For a better diagnosis on how to fix your wine cooler, call Speedy Refrigerator Service. We’ve been serving Long Island, Queens, and NYC since 1942, so you know you can count on us for quality service at affordable prices.

A Day in the Life of a Speedy Tech

I get to work bright and early, and head into the main office to ask our customer service rep what repairs I’ll be heading out on today. She says that a woman in Rockville Centre just called us and doesn’t know why her refrigerator is leaking. I take the information down, go to my Speedy Refrigerator Service truck, and start driving.

Upon arriving at the woman’s house, I can tell she’s very distressed over this issue, but also happy that I arrived so quickly. She tells me that she has to pick up her kids at school later and is worried she won’t make it in time if the fridge keeps leaking water.

“Ma’am, don’t you worry. We’ll have this fixed in no time.

I’ve seen this problem plenty of times and immediately check the drain pipe. As I suspected, it’s clogged with food particles. I explain this to her, flush out the drain, and assure her that her fridge won’t leak anymore. She thanks me and, upon my telling her the cost of the repair, hands me a printed out coupon from our website to save $25. I head back out to my truck and she’s off to pick up her kids.

I get another call from our customer service rep that a man in Long Beach called us about a torn door gasket. “I’m on it.” I get to the man’s house and he shows me that the gasket seal on his freezer door has a large tear and that his freezer is basically one giant ice block. I explain to him that we’ll have to replace the seal, and he says “Oh gosh. I’m going to have to order that and wait for it, aren’t I?”

I tell him, “No, sir. I’ve got it right in my truck. At Speedy, we stock 99% of parts in our warehouse on wheels. Let me just run and grab it for you.”

I get the part from my truck, return to the house, remove the damaged gasket, and replace it with the new one. The man is happy to see that the repair is already completed.

“You know, other guys would’ve taken a week to get this done. You guys at Speedy really know your stuff — you just can’t beat that service!”

I smile. “Sir, when it comes to refrigerator and freezer repairs, Speedy has you covered.”

For any and all of your refrigerator and freezer repair needs, call Speedy Refrigerator Service at 866-782-9376.

What Happens When You Don’t Call Speedy

When there’s a problem with your refrigerator, you have a few options in your next course of action. You can leave it alone and hope it goes away — spoiler: it won’t. You can call a random refrigerator repair service you found online. Or you can call Speedy Refrigerator Service. Only one of those options is the right option — calling Speedy. However, if you don’t call Speedy, here’s a preview of what your experience will be like.

If You Leave the Problem Alone:

  • It will get worse — plain and simple. It’s not like when you get sick and your body heals itself. Your refrigerator relies on you to keep it working well, so if you ignore problems, they’ll only get bigger.
  • That leak will turn into puddles, the frost will turn into ice, and the few extra dollars on your energy bill will turn into much more.
  • If you don’t call Speedy and you let problems lie, eventually, your fridge will break down entirely.

If You Call Some Other Company:

  • You’ll get quoted an initial price.
  • You’ll waste an entire day (or more) waiting for your repairman to show up to home your home.
  • He or she will tell you that they have to wait for a part to come in before they can get your refrigerator fixed.
  • After waiting at least a week for that part to get there, you’ll be told to pay a different price, probably much higher than the one you were originally given.
  • In short, you’ll simply have an experience that would’ve been so much better if you had called Speedy.

When you call Speedy Refrigerator Service, we’ll send a trained technician to your home within an hour of your contacting us, and we’ll be able to get your fridge back up and running right away since we stock 99% of parts in our “warehouse on wheels.” With over 75 years of experience, you can trust us with all your refrigerator and freezer repair needs. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.

 

Why You Need to Call Speedy Today

Have you ever noticed that when something has an expiration date on it, more people are likely to take advantage of it? For example, when there’s an infomercial and a special deal only lasts for “the next 20 minutes,” that’s usually when people call the most. And once those people receive their experience or product, more than likely, they realize how great it is and then they continue taking advantage of it. Well, that’s why you need to call Speedy today — because our summer refrigerator special won’t last forever, and we know you’ll love it.

Right now,  you can call Speedy Refrigerator Service  and take advantage of our $39.95 refrigerator special that includes our  vacuuming the condenser,  oiling the motors, checking your Freon level, and checking your compressor or start up. In case you didn’t know, those are all things that you need to have done regularly in order to keep your refrigerator running at tip-top shape.  If you don’t,  parts of your refrigerator will start to wear down and your unit will either become very inefficient or stop working altogether.

You’re probably thinking, “ I can get that done any day,”  and sure, you can. But you can’t get it done any day for $39.95, or have that service done within an hour of calling if you use a different company. If you’re on Long Island or in Queens, Speedy will get to your house within the hour of your calling us and perform our refrigerator special for that low price.

So what are you waiting for?! Call Speedy Refrigerator Service today at 866-782-9376 for more information or to schedule your service.
