Let the General Exorcise Your Home’s HVAC Ghosts & Goblins

Posted on October 30, 2017

Is your house haunted by cold and hot spots? So much so you might hear this conversation: “Oh look dear, doesn’t our little girl Carol look cute? She’s all dressed up like the big bad wolf for Halloween.” Carol then got that look, you know the little look of disgust kids get when talking to their parents, and said “Wrong Mom. This isn’t a fuzzy costume. I’m all bundled up because it’s freezing in my room!” Okay, maybe there’s some literary exaggeration going on here. After all, it’s not that cold yet in our beloved California desert, but you get the point. Hot and cold spots are a real problem in many homes.

Halloween is the perfect time to find the gremlins causing the problem in your home. Call General Air Conditioning & Plumbing, the HVAC ghostbuster for Palm Springs and all of the Coachella Valley. The first step is to identify what’s causing the problem, or else you could end up throwing good money after bad.

Our professionally trained and BPI certified airflow experts will determine if there’s a problem with the heating and cooling systems, or if the house itself is causing uneven heating and cooling. We are talking about the relatively new specialty of home performance contracting. Even if you have the most efficient Lennox Air Conditioner the General sells, it won’t cool properly if the house is allowing the conditioned air to escape. The General’s professionals will conduct a home energy audit to find out if your home is performing well.

It could be that the monster causing the uneven heating or cooling is hiding in the ductwork. Leaky ducts, or uninsulated ducts, can rob your heating and cooling systems of efficiency. In some cases, the ductwork design may be limiting air flow to certain rooms. These are all problems the General’s expert technicians can solve.

It is possible your heating and cooling systems have given up the ghost and are no longer capable of keeping your home comfortable. Replacing a home comfort system doesn’t have to be a spooky experience. We feature furnaces and air conditioners by Lennox, the industry leader. Call us to learn about any money-saving specials and ways you can use other people’s money to pay for the project. The General has financing plans to fit every budget.

In some cases, the best solution is to add supplemental heating or cooling to get rid of those hot and cold spots. Ductless mini split heat pumps are a great way to do that. There can be as many as four indoor air handlers connected to an outside compressor. Each air handler has its own thermostat and delivers the conditioned air directly to the room or area where it’s needed. They are efficient because there are no ducts. The General features mini-splits by Daikin.

So please don’t make little Carol stay bundled up like a scary old wolf past Halloween. Call General Air Conditioning and Plumbing now and we’ll make sure your home is no longer haunted by hot and cold spots. One more reason they call us “The Best Little Air Conditioning and Plumbing Company in the Desert.”
