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

You may believe that if the air conditioner 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 do an inspection. But that’s where you can encounter issues.

Routinely taking your car in helps verify everything is in working order so you aren’t in the middle of a 400 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Going to see the doctor annually helps keep you healthy and finds issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

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

“Assume if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a ton of malfunctioning vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run nearly 2,000 hours annually, and if you assume it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that concludes that you put 60,000 miles yearly on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith says the process is just like 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 heating and air conditioning equipment was working fine last season doesn’t mean it can neglect its yearly tune-up. The truth is it needs maintenance now, and yearly prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
