Many homeowners in DFW opt to fix up their houses rather than move. Home repairs that update the home, such as replacing old wiring or updating plumbing fixtures, are very popular in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Plumbing and garbage disposal repairs are often needed due to clogs or leaks, and electrical repairs may be required to fix issues like frequently tripped breakers or flickering lights.
HVAC repairs and service calls are also very popular in the Dallas Fort Worth area, as you would expect, thanks to the Texas heat. Problems resulting from poor maintenance and improper usage are most common. Debris from Texas cottonwood trees often clogs up the condenser coils, putting unnecessary stress on the unit. That can cause excessive wear and tear on all parts of the unit.
The majority of service calls our Candu Pros handle in the Dallas Fort Worth area are appliance repairs. Refrigerator repairs are common, usually because they can’t keep a proper internal temperature or because the freezer stops working. When the refrigerator compartment won’t stay cool, it’s usually the evaporator fan, but when the freezer stops working, it’s usually the compressor -- and that means it’s time to buy a new fridge.
Range, oven, and cooktop repairs are also common in Dallas Fort Worth. When a cooktop or oven won’t light or heat up, it’s usually a broken ignition element or, on a gas cooktop, a blocked ignition valve. However, the ignition system could also be faulty. An oven or stove repair might also require replacing the oven bake element or oven temperature sensor.
