Depend on Regular HVAC Maintenance Not the Luck of the Irish

The Christmas decorations are put away (hopefully). The valentines have been sent and received (hopefully your spouse or significant other liked the gift). Now it’s time to find the best green clothes in your closet and kiss the blarney stone. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

Every year you hear about the “Luck of the Irish”, but General Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here to tell you depending on any sort of luck when it comes to your HVAC systems is a big mistake. Only routine maintenance and tune-ups can keep air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps running efficiently.

We’re not going to say you can’t get lucky for a while, even if you ignore maintenance. But there is no pot-of-gold at the end of the rainbow, and your luck will run out. Eventually, just about every homeowner has to face the question, repair or replace? When a homeowner waits too long, he or she could be wasting money on a series of expensive air conditioning repairs on your Palm Springs home. Replace a heating or cooling system too soon and you’re not getting a full return on your investment.

The General is committed to training and developing our HVAC team in Palm Springs, CA to ensure everyone you deal with is an expert in the field. We will work with you through every step of the process. From determining if replacement is the right choice for you, right up to your air conditioning installation in Palm Springs or anywhere else in the Coachella Valley. We can also help you pay for your new system with financing plans to fit every budget and special deals and rebates from our manufacturers.

St. Patty’s day is also a great time to consider replacing your old water heater. Right now, the General is offering a $100 rebate on a new tank-style heater and $150 on an efficient new tankless system.

By the way, a little research on the phrase “Luck of the Irish” turned up this information: Many feel it came about because of all the bad luck the Irish people endured including conquest, famines and those annoying leprechauns.

Don’t let that stop you from celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. But when it comes to keeping your home comfortable, count on reliable service, repair, and maintenance from General Air Conditioning & Plumbing. Not the luck of the Irish, or for that matter, luck of any kind.
