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 also get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Cocoa each season?

You may think that if the air conditioner kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t run into any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that you don’t need to have a technician come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you could encounter malfunctions.

Taking your car to the mechanic helps confirm everything is in working order so you aren’t 100 miles into a 300 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Going to see the doctor regularly helps keep your body healthy and discovers issues early, like heart problems or cancer.

It’s similar with HVAC maintenance. The owner or Portland-based Sky Heating and Air Conditioning, Travis Smith, explained it very simply.

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

Smith also notes that the process mirrors 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 break down and have shorter lifespans.”

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