You have your car serviced every 3000-5000 miles. You visit your doctor for a physical every year. So why wouldn’t you always get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Jacksonville each season?
You may believe that if the air conditioner kept you cool all last summer, or you didn’t encounter any mishaps with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having a technician come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you may run into problems.
Routinely taking your car in helps verify everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car unexpectedly breaks down. Seeing the doctor annually helps keep your body healthy and discovers issues early, like heart ailments 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 simply.
“Assume if only 20% of people who owned vehicles had them maintained regularly. There would be a lot of broken-down vehicles. A heating and cooling system can run around 2,000 hours annually, and if you figure it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that means you put 60,000 miles annually on your equipment in between maintenance.”
Smith goes on to explain the process is similar to 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 devices need maintenance or they will break down and have decreased lifespans.”
So just because your system was working well last season doesn’t mean it doesn’t need its yearly tune-up. The truth is it needs maintenance now, and each year prior to the peak heating and peak cooling season.
