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 remember to get your routine heating and cooling maintenance in Mobile each season?
You may feel that if the air conditioner kept you cool all last summer, or you didn’t have any issues with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having a technician come out and maintain the system. But that’s where you can encounter malfunctions.
Taking your car in regularly helps confirm everything is in working order so you aren’t halfway into a 200 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor each year helps keep your body healthy and catches issues early, like heart problems or cancer.
It’s similar with HVAC maintenance. The owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Travis Smith, explained it very simply.
“Think about if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a lot of broken-down vehicles. An HVAC system can run nearly 2,000 hours yearly, and if you figure it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that concludes that you put 60,000 miles per year on your system in between maintenance.”
Smith says the process is just like car maintenance. “Just as a vehicle mechanic would bring the need for oil changes and routine tune-ups to the owner’s attention. There is no difference. Machines need maintenance or they will malfunction and have decreased lifespans.”
So just because your heating and air conditioning equipment was working great 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.
