Why You Need HVAC Services
The record high in Redland, CA, is 118 degrees. The record low is 18. Those temperatures are extreme, but it doesn’t take record temps to make your house unbearable. An especially hot or cold day can be hazardous to the elderly or infirmed. Having a place to get out of the elements is essential.
For all kinds of heating and cooling repairs, maintenance, and installs, call The General! We can do it all in Redlands, CA.
Installing an AC Unit
If your Redlands, CA, home doesn’t have central heating and cooling, you might rely on window units for climate control. For new buildings or existing homes, adding an AC unit is a dramatic upgrade. You can expect:
- Lower energy costs
- Decreased noise
- Reduced allergens
- Cleaner air
- Increased property value
These facts can be surprising, but they’re true! Window air units aren’t as efficient as dedicated systems. They also use more electricity and cannot maintain stable temperatures throughout a house as consistently as central AC or mini-split systems. Yes, the upfront cost of installing a central air unit is more expensive than purchasing a few window units. But in the long run, they’ll be more expensive.
You can solve (or avoid) many future problems with a little preventive maintenance.
Call The General! Our trained professionals will complete the following maintenance tasks:
- Cleaning/changing your filters
- Checking the refrigerant for leaks or low amounts
- Inspecting all electrical connections
- Testing the thermostat for accurate temperature
- Lubricating bearings and other moving parts
- Replacing worn items
AC units, even well-maintained ones, only last so long. However, you can extend your AC’s operational life by a surprising amount when you do regular upkeep. Call General Air Conditioning and Plumbing for AC maintenance twice a year一once in the fall and once in the spring.
Furnace and AC Repair
Even the highest quality, most well-maintained heating and AC units can break down from time to time. There are many possible reasons, such as:
- Old, clogged filters
- Broken thermostat reads the wrong temperature
- Parts fail, such as compressor or condenser
- Too little refrigerant (or too much)
- Worn coils
The experts at General Air Conditioning and Plumbing can diagnose your HVAC unit in no time. Once we can track down and source the problem, we will get your heating and cooling running like new again!
Replacing an Old System
The operational life of your AC system, even with proper maintenance, will come to an end someday. When that happens, it’s time for a replacement. Now is the perfect time to assess whether your new unit needs to be larger, smaller, of a different design, or even in a new location. Take the opportunity to optimize your new system and make sure it’s the right one for the job.
You can also head off the problem by replacing your existing system if it’s on its last legs. General Air Conditioning and Plumbing can examine your AC and see if it’s time for a replacement or if it still has some life left. Most ACs lose efficiency by their tenth year.
Some homes in Redlands, CA, don’t have ductwork. Ductless homes (usually older ones) with no AC or ductwork are excellent candidates for mini-split systems. Much like central air, the actual compressor/condenser unit is outside, but each room gets an air handler and temperature control. Mini splits are a good option for people who don’t want to install ducts or want to preserve an antique home.
