Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You remember to take your car in for maintenance every 3000-5000 miles. You visit your doctor for a physical every year. So why wouldn’t you also get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Winnipeg each season?

You may believe that if the air conditioner kept you cool all throughout last summer, or you didn’t encounter any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having an expert come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you may run into malfunctions.

Routinely taking your car in helps make sure everything is operating correctly so you aren’t in the middle of a 300 mile trip when your car unexpectedly breaks down. Going to see the doctor regularly helps keep yourself healthy and discovers issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

It’s similar with heating and cooling maintenance. The owner or Portland-based Sky Heating and Air Conditioning, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Imagine if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a good amount of broken vehicles. A heating and cooling 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 annually on your system in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process mirrors 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. Mechanical products need maintenance or they will stop working and have smaller lifespans.”

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