Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You remember to take your car in for maintenance 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 believe that if the AC kept you cool all last summer, or you didn’t run into any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that it’s not necessary to have a technician come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you could encounter malfunctions.

Taking your car in regularly helps make sure everything is functioning properly so you aren’t 100 miles into a 400 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 heating and cooling maintenance. The owner or Portland-based Sky Heating and Air Conditioning, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Assume if only one out of five people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a lot of broken vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run around 2,000 hours yearly, 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 to any auto owner’s attention that it needs oil changes and regular tune-ups. There is no difference. Mechanical products need maintenance or they will break down and have decreased lifespans.”

So just because your heating and air conditioning equipment was working great 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.
