Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You remember to take your car in for maintenance every 3000-5000 miles. You pay a visit to your doctor every year. So why wouldn’t you always get your routine heating and cooling maintenance in East Syracuse each season?

You may believe that if the air conditioning system kept you cool all throughout last summer, or you didn’t have any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having a technician come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you can run into malfunctions.

Taking your car to the mechanic helps make sure everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor regularly helps keep you healthy and discovers issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

It’s just the same with heating and cooling maintenance. The owner or Portland-based Sky Heating and Air Conditioning, Travis Smith, explained it very plainly.

“Assume if only 20% of people who owned vehicles maintained them. There would be a ton of broken vehicles. A heating and cooling system can run nearly 2,000 hours per year, and if you assume 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 goes on to explain the process is similar to auto maintenance. “Just as an auto mechanic would bring to any auto owner’s attention that it needs oil changes and regular tune-ups. There is no difference. Machines need maintenance or they will malfunction and have shorter lifespans.”

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