We’ve Moved! More Summer Tips for Coachella Valley Homes

June 1, 2015

Premier Residential Services moved into our new offices on May 29th. The new offices are located at 43-100 Cook Street (across from Palm Desert High School and the golf driving range) in the White Water Building, Suite 101, Palm Desert, CA 92211 (get directions). Come see us when you are in town! Telephone and fax numbers are unchanged.

If you do not already do so, please make sure that you direct all US Mail to our post office box (P.O. Box 13250, Palm Desert, CA 92250-3250). All FedEx, UPS and carrier deliveries should be sent to the new Cook Street physical address.

Premier Residential Service’s offices will be closed for the 4th of July holiday, on Friday, July 3rd. Our summer hours (7:30 am – 4:00 pm) began on Monday, June 1.

As a reminder, replacing weather stripping on both your garage and entry doors will cut down on the amount of dust and sand that blows in, impede the opportunity for insects and critters to gain entry to your home, and doing so will also save money on energy usage.

  • Clothes Dryer Vent Cleaning – It is recommended to periodically clean out the built-up lint from the entire clothes dryer exhaust system (vent hoses, machine vent housing and the external exhaust cover). The Fire Marshall warns us that clothes dryers start more residential fires than any other appliance.
  • Heating & Air Conditioning System Service – Now that temperatures have risen, if you have not had your HVAC unit(s) serviced, this is an optimal time of year to schedule service to insure that your units run efficiently during the peak cooling season. To maintain efficiency and reduce energy demands, we will clean/replace filters; check blower belts, temperatures, ducts and plenum connections; and clean condensate lines and condenser areas.
  • Washing Machine Water Hose Replacement – Laundry equipment manufacturers recommend that hot and cold rubber water hoses, along with the gaskets on your washing machines, be replaced every 18 months due to the extreme desert heat and constant fluctuations in water pressure, which can cause water related damage to your home. We recommend replacing the rubber hoses with the metal braided style and installing a new set of easy-to-use hot and cold water line shut off valves as necessary.
  • Summer Project(s) – Exterior door frames and window frames that are subject to the direct sun require upkeep painting or repair if there is evidence of dry rot. If there is another project or task that you would like to schedule over the summer months, contact us with the details and we will arrange to obtain a proposal or schedule the work.

Please call our office at 760-773-4081 for pricing, installation or further information regarding these suggestions, or to request assistance with any other home project that you would like to accomplish this summer.
