Why Preventative Furnace Maintenance Matters

October 12, 2016

You have your car serviced 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 Nashville each season?

You may feel that if the air conditioner kept you cool all last summer, or you didn’t encounter any problems with your furnace last winter, that you can skip having someone come out and do an inspection. But that’s where you could run into issues.

Taking your car in regularly helps confirm everything is operating correctly so you aren’t halfway into a 400 mile trip when your car all of a sudden breaks down. Visiting the doctor each year helps keep yourself healthy and discovers issues early, like heart problems 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 plainly.

“Imagine if only one out of five people who owned vehicles received maintenance on them. There would be a good amount 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 per year on your equipment in between maintenance.”

Smith also notes that the process is similar to auto 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. Machines need maintenance or they will malfunction and have decreased lifespans.”

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