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 heating and air conditioning maintenance in Savannah each season?

You may think that if the AC kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t have any issues with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having an expert come out and take a look. But that’s where you may have malfunctions.

Taking your car to the mechanic helps confirm everything is operating correctly so you aren’t 100 miles into a 200 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Visiting the doctor each year helps keep your body healthy and discovers issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

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

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

Smith says the process is similar to car maintenance. “Just as a vehicle mechanic would bring the need for oil changes and routine tune-ups to the owner’s attention. There is no difference. Machines need maintenance or they will malfunction and have shorter lifespans.”

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