Check Air Duct Cleaning Off Your To-Do List

Check Air Duct Cleaning Off Your To-Do List

With school out and vacations on the horizon, summer is a great time to tackle housekeeping jobs you’ve been meaning to get to. You may have scheduled your annual air conditioning tune-up, which is great, but if you haven’t had your ductwork cleaned recently, you are missing an important step to keep the air quality in your home at its best. This also prevents your AC from running at its optimal efficiency. Here are the top reasons you should add AC duct cleaning to your to-do list.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Because of the humid climate in Florida, mildew and other microbial growth could also be lurking in your AC ducts along with other contaminants. Contaminants, including pollen, dust, pet dander, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can accumulate within your ducts. When this happens, they are continually circulated through the air. The air in your home can seem stale and musty, no matter how much air freshener you spray. AC duct cleaning removes the contaminants from your ducts and immediate improves indoor air quality.

Helps Reduce Respiratory Issues

Because of the humid climate in the Jacksonville area, mold or mildew could also be lurking in your AC ducts along with other contaminants. Dirty ductwork can exacerbate allergy and asthma symptoms. Accumulations of dust, combined with warm moist air makes the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and viruses to grow. Cleaning and sanitizing your AC ducts on a regular basis removes these dangerous contaminants and can help you and your family breathe easier.

Makes Your HVAC System More Efficient

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Ductwork that leaks or is filled up with dust and other contaminants cannot provide the optimal air flow that your system needs to run efficiently. You could have top-of-the-line HVAC equipment in your home, but if your ductwork is in poor condition, you are throwing money away every time you use your AC. An AC duct cleaning includes an inspection of your ducts, which can uncover leaks that allow dust in and cooled air out. When problems are found, recommendations will be made for repairs, replacements or sealing.

Saves money

Save up to $30 on your energy bill by regularly cleaning your air ducts on a yearly basis. A clean vent increases airflow, which will allow your home to be more energy efficient. Dirty vents can cause malfunctions and overheating which can lead to unexpected repair costs.


It is recommended that you have your home’s HVAC ductwork cleaned every three to five years or more often if needed. If it has been a long time since your last AC duct cleaning, you can get back on track by scheduling service with Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning.

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.

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.
