Landscaping, deck repair, kitchen renovations – owning a home means that you need to keep it in good shape and looking great. This is especially important when it comes to your Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. Without it, you don’t get any air conditioning or heating, and it needs regular maintenance to work as efficiently as possible.

Many people want to save on costs by doing some of their home maintenance projects themselves, and rightly so. And while there are some HVAC projects you can easily do yourself, there are others you definitely shouldn’t. So how do you know which ones you can do on your own?

HVAC projects you can handle yourself

There are some basic HVAC tasks that most people can handle on their own:

  • Cleaning and changing your air filter, based on the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Verifying that your thermostat is set to optimal settings based on both the time of day and season.
  • Cutting back vegetation at least two feet away from your outdoor unit.
  • Removing debris from your air ducts. Note that you will need a professional to get in further, especially if you have been doing home renovations.

HVAC projects that need a professional

Some people avoid certain HVAC tasks because of the costs associated with hiring a professional. But think – a professional has the training, experience, and tools to complete tasks quickly and completely. They know which parts to get and can save on the cost of purchasing them. Finally, they are aware of the safety aspects of working with your HVAC system. So which HVAC projects need a professional? Here are just a few:

  • Large obstructions: It happens – you get debris clogged in your ductwork or other parts of your HVAC system. But if you have a large obstruction or one that you cannot reach easily or safely, then it is time to call in a professional.
  • Electrical issues: You never want to play around with your electrical system. A professional can assess the situation and make sure that the work is done safely and with the proper equipment. Don’t risk your life!
  • Disposal of dangerous chemicals: For HVAC systems to run, they may need to use chemicals. But when these chemicals need to be replaced or disposed of, there are special methods that need to be followed. Not following these methods or simply disposing of the chemicals using standard homeowner ways can mean soil or water contamination. Let the professionals handle these substances correctly.

If you’re unsure about an HVAC project or hesitant about a specific step, call in the professionals at Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning. Our quality repair technicians will take care of your home for years to come. Schedule service with us today and enjoy a cool and comfortable summer.

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.
