Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You take your car in to be serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You pay a visit to your doctor every year. So why wouldn’t you remember to get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Daytona Beach each season?

You may think that if the air conditioning system 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 someone come out and maintain the system. But that’s where you can run into problems.

Routinely taking your car in helps make sure everything is in working order so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Visiting the doctor each year helps keep yourself healthy and catches issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

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

“Imagine if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a ton of malfunctioning vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run nearly 2,000 hours annually, and if you assume it’s working at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that would mean you put 60,000 miles per year on your equipment in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process is similar to 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 malfunction and have decreased lifespans.”

So just because your heating and air conditioning equipment was working great last season doesn’t mean it doesn’t need its seasonal tune-up. The truth is it needs maintenance now, and each year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
