Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You have your car serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You remember to get your physical every year. So why wouldn’t you always get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Voorhees each season?

You may think that if the air conditioner kept you cool all throughout last summer, or you didn’t have any problems with your furnace last winter, that you don’t need to have an expert come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you can have problems.

Routinely taking your car in helps make sure everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car unexpectedly breaks down. Seeing the doctor regularly helps keep yourself healthy and finds issues early, like heart problems or cancer.

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

“Imagine if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles received maintenance on them. There would be a lot of broken vehicles. A heating and cooling system can run around 2,000 hours annually, and if you figure it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that means you put 60,000 miles yearly on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process is similar to car maintenance. “Just as an auto mechanic would explain to the owner that their vehicle needs regular tune-ups and oil changes. There is no difference. Mechanical products need maintenance or they will malfunction and have smaller lifespans.”

So just because your heating and air conditioning equipment was working fine last season doesn’t mean it doesn’t need its yearly tune-up. The real matter is it needs maintenance now, and yearly prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
