Feeling a little hot inside? With summer temperatures crossing into the 100s, waiting for AC repair in Desert Hot Springs isn’t an option. The General offers 24/7 emergency AC repair service so you don’t have to wait for long! If you’re only having minor issues, summer is no time to let AC problems slide! A minor malfunction can mean that your unit has to work harder to keep your home cool, putting it at a higher risk for breaking down when you need it most.


Be on the lookout for these signs that you need AC repair:

  • Your AC is leaking
  • Your unit makes loud noises
  • It’s very humid in your home
  • Warm air is coming out of your vents
  • Your AC cycles on and off continuously

AC Replacement & Installation in Desert Hot Springs

If your old air conditioner breaks, we may determine that replacement is the better option for your Desert Hot Springs home. There are many factors that will weigh into this decision, such as the severity and cost of the needed repair and the age of the unit. If your AC is 10+ years old and needs a very expensive repair or needs frequent smaller repairs, it is often more cost effective to replace it with a newer model.


Outdated air conditioners are much less efficient than today’s models, and all air conditioners grow less efficient with age. You may notice that your energy costs skyrocket in the summer because your aging AC is fighting hard to keep your home cool – and most likely not doing a great job! A new air conditioner will drastically cut your energy bills. It will also keep your home much cooler, and with regular maintenance it will rarely require repairs.
The friendly HVAC experts at the General can give you an honest assessment of your current AC system, then help you weigh the pros and cons of AC replacement. We carry high-quality air conditioners at competitive prices, and we offer multiple financing options to help you budget for the unexpected expense of a new air conditioner.
