Review by in Grayslake, IL
They came out same day and was on time. Performed work and discussed the issue and showed me the parts that were defective.

Review by in Prospect Heights, IL
I was able to get same day service to repair my 20+-year-old dryer when its motor went out. Lou provided me with an accurate estimate, and for the amount of work required, the price was quite reasonable. Lou was personable, efficient, and assured me that while my dryer might be old, it was well worth repairing rather than replacing (given the quality of new machines). Extremely happy with my experience, and have recommended Area Appliance to others already.

Review by in Palatine, IL
Problem was with a 16-year old refrigerator no longer cooling. Received a callback right away and was able to get same day service. Lou, the technician was very personable and professional. The issue wasn't fixed in the first visit, but the cost covered the subsequent visit, in which Lou came back out right away and was able to replace a part and fix the fridge. Overall, I was very pleased with Lou and this company, and will be using them again for any appliance repairs.

Able to set up same day service. Owner was professional, honest and efficient. My washed has never worked so well! Delighted with Area Appliance. Restored my faith in repairing what I have got instead of buying new!

Review by in Palatine, IL
Called Area Appliance because my ice maker was dripping. I was greatly distressed because we had recently redone the kitchen flooring. Lou arrive on time and was very cordial.. Showed him my dripping ice maker and he went to work. Only a few minutes later he said, " Mamme, your ice maker is not dripping, you are not closing the door tightly." He ddi not charge me but spent many minutes checking the machine. Told me the bottom needed a vacuum. He made me an appointmeant to do that today, arrived on time do a great job. Left me as happy as a pig in mud (as my farmer grandfather use to say). St. Peter will greet Lou with roses because he did not take advantage of elderly or disabled and he knew and did his craft well.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
