Your System Needs Regular TLC

Posted on March 21, 2016

If it’s mechanical in nature, it needs maintenance. We all know that we can’t just jump in our cars day after day, turn the ignition and expect it to purr like a kitten. We have to maintain the vehicle so it starts every time, runs smoothly and doesn’t leave us stranded. This also applies to your home’s cooling and heating system, which needs regular and effective maintenance to keep it operating at peak efficiency day after day while keeping your home’s climate where you want it. This is especially important in the Coachella Valley, where we experience some extreme temperatures in the summer months.

At General Air Conditioning and Plumbing, we believe that regular and efficient maintenance is the best way to keep your cooling and heating system operating efficiently. This will save you money on your utility bills and will also help to prevent costly repairs. Regular maintenance can be crucial for your air conditioning system when it comes to detecting and correcting air conditioning refrigerant leaks, which is a dual threat. Not only does a leaking air conditioner potentially harm the environment, it is also one of the main causes of system failure. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a system only one-half pound low on refrigerant can cause 20% more utility usage. Plus, if you check out your system’s home warranty details, you will find that most are void if regular maintenance is not performed and documented.

So, even if you think your HVAC system is operating well, stay on a maintenance schedule. Regular and effective maintenance can:

  • Improve your comfort
  • Promote longer system life
  • Save up to 10-30% on utility costs
  • Reduce the likelihood of a/c or heating system breakdowns
  • Meet warranty requirements and save on repairs
