AC Repair in Cathedral City

Your cooling system works hardest when temperatures are hottest, which means that it’s most likely to break down in the middle of summer – right when you need it most! Living without air conditioning for any amount of time is not an option in Cathedral City during the summer. Before your air conditioner breaks down, it often gives some warning signs. If you pay attention to these signs, you can call the General for service before your air conditioner or heat pump stops working, and prevent a breakdown with a timely repair.

Signs you need AC repair:

  • Insufficient or uneven cooling
  • AC makes loud noises
  • AC is leaking
  • AC is running up your energy bill
  • AC is not dehumidifying your home sufficiently

If you notice any of these signs, or if your air conditioner is acting strange at all, call the General right away for AC repair in Cathedral City. In the event that your air conditioner does break down, you can count on the General for 24-hour emergency AC service. We also offer heat pump repair and ductless AC system repair, so call us with any cooling problem!

AC Replacement & Installation

If your air conditioner, heat pump, or ductless AC system is older and seems to be struggling to meet your needs, consider replacing it with a newer, more efficient system. It can be tempting to wait and see if it will survive one more summer, but we don’t recommend it. That can leave you with high energy bills and a cooling system that breaks down right when you need it most, requiring a replacement anyway. If you’re not sure, call the General – our AC experts can evaluate your cooling system and help you determine if a replacement is in your best interest.

Signs that it’s time to replace your air conditioner:

  • 10+ years old – Air conditioners over 10 years old have a higher chance of breaking down, needing repairs, and running less efficiently.
  • Frequent repairs – If you’re constantly paying for repairs on an older AC system, it’s better to put that money towards a new unit.
  • High energy bills – Older models are far less efficient than today’s new air conditioners, and all air conditioners decrease in efficiency as the years go by.
  • Poor air quality – Your AC should be ventilating your home and dehumidifying your air, but as it starts to fail it might not do a very good job of this.
  • R-22 refrigerant – Older air conditioners may use R-22 refrigerant, which was discontinued by the EPA in 2010. As of 2020, R-22 is no longer imported or produced. If your old AC uses R-22, no HVAC contractor will be able to add more refrigerant to repair it.

If you think it might be time for a replacement, call the General to hear about your options. With our flexible financing options, you don’t have to wait to be more comfortable. Along with central air conditioners, we offer heat pump installation and ductless AC system installation. Whichever system you need, our AC technicians will expertly install it for years of worry-free cooling.

Indoor Air Quality Services

Your home’s indoor air quality has a direct impact on your family’s health. The EPA rates indoor air quality much lower than outdoor air quality, so taking steps to improve yours is essential. At the General, we offer indoor air quality services to bring your cleaner, more breathable air. Our Indoor Air Quality Specialists can test the air quality in your home and recommend a plan of action to improve it immediately. Controlling humidity in your home can keep it at comfortable levels and prevent mold, mildew, and problems with skin and allergies. With humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and filtration systems, the General can help you achieve much higher levels of indoor air quality. Your family will thank you!
