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 Kansas City each season?

You may feel that if the AC kept you cool all throughout last summer, or you didn’t encounter any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that you don’t need to have a technician come out and maintain the system. But that’s where you may run into 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 all of a sudden breaks down. Seeing the doctor each year helps keep your body healthy and finds issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

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

“Imagine if only 20% of people who owned vehicles received maintenance on them. There would be a ton of malfunctioning vehicles. A heating and air conditioning system can run around 2,000 hours yearly, and if you figure it’s running at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that would mean you put 60,000 miles yearly on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith goes on to explain the process is just like car maintenance. “Just as a car 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 decreased lifespans.”

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