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 heating and air conditioning maintenance in Buffalo each season?

You may think that if the air conditioning system kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t encounter any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that it’s not necessary to have a technician come out and take a look. But that’s where you could encounter issues.

Taking your car in regularly helps confirm everything is functioning properly so you aren’t in the middle of a 300 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Visiting the doctor regularly helps keep your body healthy and finds issues early, like heart problems or cancer.

It’s just the same with heating and air conditioning maintenance. Travis Smith, owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Oregon, explained it very plainly.

“Think about if only one out of five people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a good amount of broken-down vehicles. A heating and cooling system can run about 2,000 hours per year, and if you imagine 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 says the process is similar to vehicle maintenance. “Just as a vehicle mechanic would explain to the owner that their vehicle needs regular tune-ups and oil changes. There is no difference. Mechanical products need maintenance or they will malfunction and have smaller lifespans.”

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