How to Store Leftovers in the Refrigerator - Appliance Rescue Service

If your family is anything like ours, during the holidays we accumulate a lot of leftovers in the refrigerator. In order to avoid waste from forgotten leftovers or improper storage, here are a few tips from Appliance Rescue Service in Dallas, Texas on how to store leftovers in the refrigerator:

 

Don’t Overstuff the Refrigerator

In order to maximize efficiency – and keep your refrigerator running longer – try not to overstuff it with food. This can be hard during the holidays, but immediately throw out anything that won’t be eaten and freeze anything that you don’t plan to eat again for awhile. This frees up room for holiday meal prep and leftovers, all while maximizing airflow in your refrigerator.

 

Refrigerate Leftovers Within 2 Hours

Modern refrigerators are really good at handling really hot foods, so don’t feel like you have to let something cool all the way down before placing it in the fridge. Get leftovers in the refrigerator within 2 hours to avoid spoilage.

 

Don’t Store Leftovers in Cans

It can be tempting to just put some plastic wrap over a half used can of cranberry sauce and put the rest in the fridge for later, but don’t. Leaving food in open metal cans can cause metal from the open lid to leach into food and create a metallic taste.

 

Use Leftovers within 2 Days

After putting leftovers in the refrigerator, either plan to eat them within 2 days, or put them in the freezer for future consumption. Investing in a quality vacuum sealer can really reduce waste when storing in the freezer.

 

Happy Holidays from your friends at Appliance Rescue Service in Dallas, Texas! And as always, if you find yourself in need of refrigerator repair in Dallas, Plano, McKinney, Frisco, or the surrounding North Texas communities, give us a call for fast service you can count on.

4 Ways to Help Your Refrigerator Stay Icy Cold This Summer

The air conditioner isn’t the only thing that has to work on overdrive over the summer.

Hot, humid air makes the refrigerator work harder too.

Appliance Rescue Service in Dallas, Texas has been servicing a lot of refrigerators this summer, and we want to help you keep yours running in tip top condition. Follow these tips to help your refrigerator stay nice and cold, even during these hot summer months:

 

1.  Clean the Condensers

Use your user manual to locate the condenser coils, then once every 6 months, go ahead and clean them with a lint brush. Keeping the condenser coils clean helps maximize the efficiency, making it easier for the refrigerator to keep cool.

 

2.  Check for Leaks

Gaskets and door seals break down over time, allowing warm air in and cold air out – even when the door is closed. Check if it’s time to replace yours by putting a piece of paper in the door, the closing the door and trying to pull the paper out. If the paper slides out easily, then you know the gaskets and seals are leaking air.

3.  Leave Room Between Wall & Refrigerator

Pressing the refrigerator as close to the wall as possible doesn’t give the refrigerator any room to “breathe.” Leaving a few inches between the unit and the wall gives ample room for the condenser to disperse heat from the condenser.

 

4.  Don’t Overload It

Cram packing a refrigerator full of food is one way to make your unit go into overdrive. The more food and less room for air to circulate in the refrigerator, the tougher time your fridge will have keeping up.

Is it Really Necessary to Change my Refrigerator's Water Filter?

In short – yes!

When you buy a new refrigerator – whether it’s a Maytag, GE, Jenn-Air, Sub-Zero, etc. – chances are it’s going to have a water filtration system to keep your water crystal clear and clean. Most manufacturers recommend changing these filters every 6 months, and for good reason! Check out these 4 reasons to change your water filter regularly:

1.     Changes in Taste & Smell: Ever tasted tap water after you’ve gotten used to using filtered water? Does it smell or taste different? This is because the filter is there to filter out minerals, chemicals, and microbes that could be floating around in your water. The filter is there to take the filtering the city does to an extra degree to ensure tastier, fresher water.

2.     Clogs in the Dispenser: When the filter begins to breakdown and stop doing it’s job, hard minerals are not scrubbed out and make it through to the water. These minerals can not only change the taste of your water, but they can clog up the tubing to your dispenser, making it difficult for the water to pass through.

3.     Cloudy Ice: If you are looking at a cup of unfiltered water, you many not be able to notice the additional minerals, chemicals, and microbes in the water. But freeze it – and it will tell a different story. When you haven’t changed your filter, these deposits are not filtered out of the water, and when frozen, the water will appear cloudy – giving you anything but crystal clear ice.

4.      The City Doesn’t Always Get it Right: Our local municipalities work their hardest to filter the water and meet appropriate standards for drinking water. But this varies from city to city, state to state. A water filtration system in your refrigerator – with a good filter – is going to give you the maximum protection from heavy metals, microbes, chemicals, or added minerals that could be in the water supply.
