Fall Has Arrived—Call the General to Make Sure You Are Ready

It’s officially autumn. Many people consider it the best time of year. While it’s still very warm in the desert, you can feel the nights getting cooler and the daytime heat isn’t quite as stifling.The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting cooler than normal temperatures in September and October, and your friends at General Air Conditioning & Plumbing want to make sure you are ready.

Now is the time to call and schedule a tune-up and any needed heating system repairs. Sure, everyone knows Palm Springs isn’t Chicago, but you’re still going to need heat to keep your house comfortable. The last thing you want is to be shivering in your own home when the first really cool weather arrives. The best way to make sure that doesn’t happen is with heating maintenance.

When you make the call, here is what the General’s heating tune-up will include:

  • The technician will test all electric or gas connections and valves, as well as the gas pressure, burner combustion and the heat exchanger if you have a traditional furnace.
  • Problems in any of those areas can put your family at risk by causing a fire hazard or possible carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Inspect the flue, pilot assembly and blower motor to make sure all are working correctly
  • Check thermostat to make sure the HVAC system is only running when you want it to
  • Make sure all electrical wiring connections are clean and tight

While we’re at your house for the heating system service, we can also make sure the gas logs and outdoor fireplace is ready for entertaining guests. Our professionally trained and NATE certified technicians will check for any gas leaks and make sure the gas logs are burning correctly. What? You say you don’t have a backyard fireplace? Guess what? The General can take care of that as well. A new fireplace or a new fire pit will make the patio so inviting you won’t want to go back inside.

Fall really is a great time of year, just make sure you are prepared for the temperature change. Call General Air Conditioning & Plumbing now to schedule your maintenance.  Just one more way the General is “The Best Little Air Conditioning and Plumbing Company in the Desert.”
