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 HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) maintenance in Oakville each season?

You may feel that if the AC kept you cool all through the previous 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 take a look. But that’s where you could have problems.

Routinely taking your car in helps make sure everything is in working order so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car suddenly breaks down. Visiting the doctor each year helps keep your body healthy and catches issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

It’s very similar with heating and cooling maintenance. The owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Travis Smith, explained it very plainly.

“Imagine if only one out of five people who owned vehicles maintained them. There would be a ton of broken-down vehicles. An HVAC system can run nearly 2,000 hours yearly, and if you figure it’s working at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that concludes that you put 60,000 miles yearly on your furnace in between maintenance.”

Smith goes on to explain the process is just like vehicle maintenance. “Just as an auto mechanic would bring to any auto owner’s attention that it needs oil changes and regular tune-ups. There is no difference. Mechanical products need maintenance or they will break down and have smaller lifespans.”

So just because your heating and air conditioning equipment was working fine last season doesn’t mean it can neglect its annual tune-up. The bottom line is it needs maintenance now, and yearly prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season. Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare’s fall promotion is happening now and you can save on a seasonal Precision tune-ups by calling 289-813-5566 today.
