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 always get your routine heating and cooling maintenance in Sharonville each season?

You may believe that if the air conditioner kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t encounter any problems with your furnace last winter, that it’s not necessary to have someone come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you could run into problems.

Taking your car in regularly helps verify everything is in working order so you aren’t halfway into a 200 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor each year helps keep your body healthy and catches issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

It’s just the same with heating and cooling maintenance. Travis Smith, owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Oregon, explained it very clearly.

“Imagine if only one out of five people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a good amount of broken vehicles. An HVAC system can run around 2,000 hours annually, and if you figure it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that concludes that you put 60,000 miles yearly on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process mirrors 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 decreased lifespans.”

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