Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You have your car serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You pay a visit to your doctor every year. So why wouldn’t you always get your routine HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) 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 take a look. But that’s where you can have malfunctions.

Taking your car in regularly 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 your body healthy and discovers issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

It’s just the same with HVAC 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 yearly, and if you assume it’s working at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that concludes that you put 60,000 miles annually on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith says the process is just like auto 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. 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 every year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
