Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You remember to take your car in for maintenance every 3000-5000 miles. You remember to get your physical every year. So why wouldn’t you always get your routine HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) maintenance in Fort Worth each season?

You may think that if the air conditioner kept you cool all last summer, or you didn’t have any mishaps 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 can encounter issues.

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 all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor annually helps keep yourself healthy and discovers issues early, like heart problems or cancer.

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

“Imagine if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a lot of broken-down vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run about 2,000 hours yearly, and if you assume it’s working at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that means you put 60,000 miles yearly on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process is similar to car 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. Machines need maintenance or they will stop working and have smaller lifespans.”

So just because your heating and cooling equipment was working well last season doesn’t mean it can skip its yearly tune-up. The real matter is it needs maintenance now, and each year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
