Discounts & Deals for HVAC Services — Don’t Be Caught in a Scheme!

JACKSONVILLE, F.L.— Saving money and cutting back on expenses whenever possible is a priority for many homeowners. Determining when and where to budget the spending on home comfort can be a bit of a challenge. Websites and Postcards that offer products and home maintenance services at discounted rates can appear attractive, but consumers must be able to differentiate between the deals that are too good to pass up and the deals that can get them caught up in a scheme.

Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office announced on December 16, 2015 they obtained a temporary injunction to shut down an air conditioning service scheme targeting vulnerable Floridians. According to the complaint, 11 companies and individuals named as defendants used false claims, intimidation and scare tactics to coerce hundreds of consumers, many of them seniors, into purchasing expensive air conditioning parts and services that were not needed or rendered. The scheme cost consumers millions of dollars. The complaint names the following as defendants: Netanel Brumand, Yoseph Cetton, Paloma Falcon-Benitez, Miri Lazko, Biniamin Ram, AC FOR SALE, LLC., Air Care Solutions, Inc., Air Care Solutions, LLC., Febrez AC, LLC., Fla AC Services and Duct Cleaning, LLC. and USAir Duct and AC, LLC. The complaint also names the following as affiliates who received proceeds from the scheme: Karen Edelsburg, Alia Factory, Inc., Alia Investments, Inc., Mirolio, Inc. and USA Wow, Inc.

The North Florida Air Conditioning Contractors Association (NFACCA) recommends homeowners determine whether or not a company is reputable before purchasing discounted services for HVAC services.

To help consumers determine whether or not a company is reputable, NFACCA offers these tips:

• Verify that the company is a NFACCA member with a certified contractor on staff.
• Ask for proof of license and insurance.
• Request that a system inspection be performed at your home, prior to hiring a contractor.
• Avoid advertisements and discounts for Air Duct Cleaning Services under $200.

NFACCA reminds homeowners that according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), duct cleaning services typically—but not always—range in cost from $450 to $1,000 per heating and cooling system. The estimated cost of services depends on the size of the system being cleaned, accessibility to the unit, climactic region the level of contamination, and the type of duct material. NFACCA urges homeowners to refer to the Code of Ethics, available on the NFACCA website. The Ethics are designed to help homeowners understand the level of commitment these contractors have to the success of the industry.

“All Members of NFACCA have signed a Code of Ethics, stating that they will uphold and advance the honor and dignity of the Air Conditioning profession,” said Brent Marler, 2016 President of NFACCA. “If you’re looking to hire a contractor or a company, start by selecting a NFACCA member.”

About NFACCA: The North Florida Air Conditioning Contractors Association, otherwise known as (NFACCA) was formed in 1968 as the Jacksonville Air Conditioning Contractors Association. In 1995 the Association changed its name from Jacksonville Air Conditioning Contractors Association to North Florida Air Conditioning Contractors Association, to more accurately reflect their membership. NFACCA’s mission is to represent qualified companies engaged in the inspection, maintenance and restoration of HVAC systems, establish industry standards for the association, and assist NFACCA members in providing high quality service to their customers. With nearly 55 members, NFACCA is made up of a diverse group of HVAC industry professionals, associates, affiliates and, yes, non-member contractors by representing their interests on legislation. The Association has been involved in most of the decisions that affect the way A/C jobs are permitted and inspected in North Florida.

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.
