Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You have your car serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You visit your doctor for a physical every year. So why wouldn’t you also get your routine HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) maintenance in Mint Hill each season?

You may think 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 problems.

Taking your car to the mechanic helps verify everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 400 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor each year helps keep you healthy and finds issues early, like heart ailments or cancer.

It’s very similar with heating and cooling maintenance. The owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Travis Smith, explained it very simply.

“Imagine if only one out of five people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a ton of broken vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run around 2,000 hours yearly, and if you imagine it’s working 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 similar to vehicle maintenance. “Just as an auto 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 shorter lifespans.”

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