People always say “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Well, it turns out there is: A free lunch will be provided at a “lunch and learn” workshop where business owners and managers can learn more about a new servicing program for heating and air-conditioning systems.
Sponsored by Yolo Energy Watch and offered through local contractors, the program provides commercial PG&E customers with comprehensive heating, ventilation and air conditioning servicing over a three-year period, with rebates that cover most of the servicing and repair costs.
The maintenance provided is according to the new, more stringent ASHRAE Standard 180, so customers get top-of-the-line servicing on their HVAC units. The idea is that providing regular, quality maintenance can prevent more costly HVAC system breakdowns, saving money on potentially expensive repairs.
“It’s like having regular doctor checkups to catch anything before it becomes a big issue, except in this case the doctor comes to you,” a news release said.
The workshop will begin at noon Thursday in the Club Room at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis. Lunch is free for attendees who register in advance at http://pgeyolo-es2.eventbrite.com/?rank=1#.
