Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You remember to take your car in for maintenance every 3000-5000 miles. You visit your doctor for a physical every year. So why wouldn’t you also get your routine heating and cooling maintenance in Charlotte each season?

You may believe that if the air conditioner kept you cool all last summer, or you didn’t encounter any issues with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having an expert come out and maintain the system. But that’s where you could have issues.

Taking your car to the mechanic helps verify everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor annually helps keep your body healthy and finds issues early, like heart ailments or cancer.

It’s very similar with HVAC maintenance. The owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Imagine if only one out of five people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a ton of malfunctioning vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run around 2,000 hours per year, and if you imagine it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that would mean you put 60,000 miles annually on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process is just like vehicle maintenance. “Just as a car mechanic would bring the need for oil changes and routine tune-ups to the owner’s attention. There is no difference. Mechanical products need maintenance or they will stop working and have decreased lifespans.”

So just because your heating and air conditioning equipment was working great last season doesn’t mean it can skip its yearly tune-up. The bottom line is it needs maintenance now, and each year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
