A Definitive Guide to NFL Sunday Foods

What is NFL Sunday with plenty of snacks and beer to fill your bellies? Everyone has their own opinions when it comes to what should be served, but forget all that. We have made a definitive guide to NFL Sunday foods that guarantees everyone sitting down to watch the game will leave full and happy — at least over the food.

A Definitive Guide to NFL Sunday Foods

Beer Nuts

Skip the boring, plain cashews and give the people what they really want — flavorful snack they can’t get enough of. All it takes is a few simple ingredients to make this delicious treat — just make sure to have plenty more to serve since beer nuts definitely go fast.

Wings

Are you even watching football if you don’t have wings? If you don’t want to buy them, bake some chicken wings until they’re fully cooked, and coat them with your favorite seasoning or sauce. We recommend serving at least buffalo, honey barbecue, and garlic-parmesan flavors to please the entire crowd.

Potato Skins

Everyone loves potatoes. End of story. To make these, you’ll need a five-pound bag of potatoes, cheddar cheese, bacon, and sour cream. As easy as they are to make, here’s a recipe to make your life a little easier.

Nachos

These are one of the most classic NFL Sunday foods. Since they’re so simple to make, especially in large servings — just layer chips, ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and guac, and you’re all set to snack.

You can’t make all these NFL Sunday foods if you’re fridge isn’t working properly. If you’re in need of fridge or freezer repairs, call Speedy Subzero Repairs.

How to Fix Your Leaking Fridge

Don’t you love walking into your kitchen in the morning to step into puddles of water coming from your fridge? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Since they don’t just go away on their own, you’d have the right idea in calling a refrigerator repair technician to come fix any leaks you have. But there’s no reason you can’t get a head start on figuring out what’s causing the problem yourself. Here’s how you can fix your leaking fridge.

How to Fix Your Leaking Fridge

Check the Seal

Sometimes leaks aren’t actually leaks at all. Sometimes it’s just excessive condensation caused by a problem with your fridge’s seal. Check to see if the gasket is damaged and letting air out of your unit. If it is, you’ll need to replace it.

Check the Defrost Drain

If you’re finding leaks inside your refrigerator, you probably have a clogged defrost drain. If you notice your defrost drain is frozen shut, you’ll need to inundate it with warm water to melt the ice and flush out the pipe.

Check Your Drain Pan

If your refrigerator is leaking on the outside, you may have a damaged drain pan. If that’s the case, water will spill out of the pan during the defrost process and out onto your kitchen floor. You’ll need to replace the pan as soon as you can to fix the problem.

Check Your Ice Maker

While it’s not as common, leaks can sometimes be the result of water coming from your ice maker. Check the water line and tighten all the connections to stop and prevent leaks.

If you still can’t figure out how to fix your leaking fridge, contact the professionals at Speedy Subzero Repairs. We’ve been providing Long Island homes with quality refrigerator repair services for 75 years. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.

Fridge Terms You Should Know

Any time you hear us talk about fridge repair, there may be a few words that make you tilt your head and go “huh?” That’s probably because, if you’re not  refrigerator repair technician, those terms don’t come up in conversation too often. So to make things easier, here are a few fridge terms you should know.

Fridge Terms You Should Know

Adjustable Thermostat

An adjustable thermostat allows you to adjust the temperature of your fridge to meet your specific cooling needs.

Auto Defrost/Defrost Cycle

This term applies to different models of refrigerator that prevent ice build-up in your unit. Rather than requiring you to defrost it yourself, these units run a defrost cycle that melts any ice that has built up in the fridge.

Commercial-Rated

These is a term used to describe refrigerators that have more powerful compressors than regular units and are meant to handle the door being opened more often.

Door Gasket

This is the rubber strip that is attached to your door and is meant to form an airtight seal when the door is closed.

Manual Defrost

These units need to be defrost by hand because they don’t have defrost cycles to get rid of ice buildup. It’s best to do these outside so you don’t get water all over your house or office.

Thermoelectric

These units do not have compressor, but rather, they use cooling nodes to pull heat out keep a constant temperature. They are more energy efficient than compressor units, but can only reach 20 degrees below the room’s temperature.

How to Keep Your Food Fresh in Your Fridge

Take a second to think about how much you spend on groceries each month? It’s probably a decent amount, so wouldn’t you want to have that food last for as long as possible and get your money’s worth? Here’s how you can keep your food fresh in your fridge for longer.

Only Buy What You Need

Don’t go too crazy when food shopping. If you end up buying too many things, they could go bad before you get a chance to eat them, and your money will go down the drain.

Shop Smart

Even though the produce section is usually the first thing you see when you walk into the supermarket, stop there last. If you grab produce first, by the time you make it to the other side of the supermarket, some of your fruits and veggies can already start to spoil.

Store Produce Separately

Like a good majority of people, you probably toss all of your produce into the crisper drawers and call it a day. Bad move. Different types of produce need to be stored in different ways.

  • Don’t keep produce in closed containers or bags — make sure any plastic bags are perforated.
  • Tomatoes should be kept at room temperature, stem-down, out of sunny areas.
  • Potatoes, onions, garlic, and squash shouldn’t go in the fridge — just a cool, dry place.
  • Vegetables should be kept in the bottom drawer of your fridge.

You can only keep your food fresh if your fridge is in tip-top shape. If you’re in need of refrigerator repairs or maintenance in Nassau County or Suffolk County, call Speedy Subzero Repairs. We’ve been around since 1946, so you know you can trust our expertise. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.

How to Keep Your Fridge Costs Low

Your fridge is one of the most power-sucking appliances you have in your kitchen, potentially even your home. And when an appliance costs you energy, it also costs you money. If you want to keep your fridge costs low, you should follow these rules of thumb.

How to Keep Your Fridge Costs Low

Clean the Coils

If the condenser coils on your refrigerator are dirty, you’re going to make your refrigerator work harder than it has to, and cause it to use more energy and increase your utility costs. Make sure your coils get cleaned at least twice a year to keep your fridge costs low.

Check the Seal

A torn or broken seal can allow cold air to escape from your fridge and make your refrigerator work harder to keep a constant, cool temperature. If you notice your seal has any tears, replace it.

Keep the Door Closed

We know it’s probably habit to stand in front of the fridge searching for your ideal snack, but this causes cold air to leave the fridge and mess with the status  temperature. Keep the door closed to avoid wasted cold air.

Keep the Fridge Full

If you’re fridge is in the fuller side, when you open it, less cold air will escape. That means your fridge won’t have to work as hard to keep a constant temperature and won’t cost you more in energy.

If you’re fridge is costing you way more than you’d like, call Speedy Subzero Repairs. We offer comprehensive refrigerator repairs on Long Island and in Queens to keep your unit running smoothly. For more information or to schedule a service, call us at 866-782-9376.
