Our Jacksonville heating systems company wants to help you identify air leaks in your home that may be forcing you to use more energy than necessary to save money and be warmer. We’ll help you identify those trouble areas to ensure your Jacksonville home’s heating systems are not working overtime during the winter.

Here are five areas where costly air leaks can occur and simple ways to fix it.Doors. Doors are one of the most obvious areas of the home that air leaks can occur. Weather stripping is an inexpensive material that can applied to the perimeter of the doors to stop drafts.

Windows. Put your hand up to your closed window. Do you still feel air blowing through? Try clear plastic insulation to cover your windows. It will help keep warm air inside so you can stop overworking your home’s heating system.

Duct connections. When you duct is not closed airtight, conditioned air can leak into areas that do not need it, like a crawl space or attic. Contact Snyder Heating & Air for useful tips on how to seal your duct connections.

Wiring holes. Wiring holes can often be found leading from the attic to your home. In order to save your Jacksonville’s home heating systems, it’s important to get them tightened up as soon as possible.

Furnace and filter slots. Double check the furnace and filter slots to ensure everything is tight. If you are unsure, then contact the Jacksonville heating system technicians at Snyder Heating & Air to assist.

Again, it’s better to be completely confident all possible air leaks are sealed then continue to throw away money heating and cooling your home with an inordinate amount of energy output. At Snyder Heating & Air, our trained Jacksonville heating systems specialists can provide a complete, in-home evaluation of all of your potential air leak areas. It’s less expensive to bring in a professional one time to seal your home then to continue to pay high amounts on your energy bill every month.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
