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 remember to get your routine heating and air conditioning maintenance in Jackson each season?

You may feel that if the air conditioning system kept you cool all through the previous summer, or you didn’t run into any problems with your furnace last winter, that it’s not necessary to have a technician come out and take a look. But that’s where you could have issues.

Routinely taking your car in helps confirm everything is in working order so you aren’t halfway into a 300 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Going to see the doctor each year helps keep your body healthy and discovers issues early, like heart disease or cancer.

It’s just the same with heating and air conditioning maintenance. The owner of Sky Heating & Air Conditioning in Portland, Travis Smith, explained it very clearly.

“Assume if only 20 percent of people who owned vehicles received maintenance on them. There would be a ton of broken vehicles. An HVAC system can run about 2,000 hours per year, and if you assume it’s operating at the equivalent of 30 miles per hour, that would mean you put 60,000 miles yearly on your furnace in between maintenance.”

Smith says the process is just like car 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 malfunction and have smaller lifespans.”

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