We’ve had a long and wild winter here in Pennsylvania, but spring has officially arrived, and with it, those cold winter storms will soon give way to high temperatures and higher humidity levels. Now is the perfect time to check your air conditioner out for any signs of trouble, by scheduling a service session from a trained technician. Doing so now gives you several weeks of comparatively cool weather to work with. Not only does that let you schedule the session at a time that is convenient to you, but if further work on your system is needed, you can get it taken care of before you have need of the air conditioner on a regular basis.
What Is a Service Session?
A service session is essentially a tune-up for your air conditioner, designed to correct a lot of little problems as well as looking for bigger ones. Over time, small issues develop in any complex piece of equipment. Your air conditioner is no different. Bolts will loosen and wear out, filters will become clogged, fan belts can loosen, and other components will wear out as well. In and of themselves, none of these issues merit their own repair session. But when taken collectively, they definitely need addressing. A service session is designed to do that, ensuring that those little problems don’t turn into bigger ones. Furthermore, if bigger problems are waiting in the wings, they will likely show signs of it before they cause a breakdown. Service sessions give the technicians a chance to check for any signs of a more serious issue demanding a formal repair session.
What Are the Benefits?
The benefits of an annual service session are numerous, and can include the following:
- Improved efficiency. All of those little issues that dog your air conditioner will leech it of its efficiency, forcing you to pay more in monthly bills than you might. A maintenance session can correct them, ensuring that your system performs as effectively as possible before summer arrives.
- Longer life. When applied regularly over time – at least once a year, preferably at the beginning of cooling season – service sessions can help extend the life of your air conditioner by months or even years. That ensures you get the maximum value out of your system, as well as delaying the unpleasant task of replacing your air conditioning.
- Less arduous repairs. In the event that further repairs are needed, a service session gives you an opportunity to stop the problem before it causes a breakdown. You can schedule repairs at leisure, instead of scrambling in front of a heat wave, and can rest easy knowing that your system is ready to go by the time that summer hits. In addition, the repairs will likely cost less than they would otherwise, since the damage hasn’t had a chance to spread and won’t be as extensive.
