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 remember to get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Denver each season?

You may think that if the AC kept you cool all 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 take a look. But that’s where you may encounter problems.

Routinely taking your car in helps verify everything is in working order so you aren’t in the middle of a 300 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Going to see 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 or Portland-based Sky Heating and Air Conditioning, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Assume if only 20% of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a ton of broken 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 concludes that you put 60,000 miles yearly on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith goes on to explain the process is similar to car 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 break down and have decreased lifespans.”

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