Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You have your car serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You visit your doctor for a physical every year. So why wouldn’t you also get your routine heating and cooling maintenance in Dallas each season?

You may feel that if the air conditioner kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t encounter any problems 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 may encounter malfunctions.

Taking your car in regularly helps make sure everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 400 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Seeing the doctor annually helps keep you healthy and catches issues early, like heart problems or cancer.

It’s very similar with heating and air conditioning maintenance. The owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Imagine if only one out of five people who owned vehicles maintained them. There would be a lot of broken-down vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run nearly 2,000 hours per year, and if you assume it’s running at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that means you put 60,000 miles per year on your furnace in between maintenance.”

Smith says the process mirrors vehicle maintenance. “Just as an auto 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 break down and have smaller lifespans.”

So just because your system was working great last season doesn’t mean it can skip its yearly tune-up. The bottom line is it needs maintenance now, and every year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
