Don’t Let Your HVAC Spook You This Halloween

Don’t Let Your HVAC Spook You This Halloween

As Halloween approaches, the days finally cool down and the nights become tranquil. The key to staying comfortable during this bewitching time is to make sure that your HVAC isn’t playing any tricks on you. What problems can arise if you haven’t maintained your HVAC system? Here are just a few of the ghastly surprises that could be waiting:

  • Poor indoor air quality: When you are breathing in less-than-stellar air, you could experience unpleasant symptoms such as dull headaches, unexplained fatigue, and dizziness.
  • Skin issues: If your HVAC system isn’t doing its job, do you know what is lurking in your home? Dust, mites, and other creepy things can create or increase your chances of skin rashes and allergies.
  • Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): VOCs are based chemicals that are found in many homes. Check your cleaners, air fresheners, solvents, and even your hobby supplies for their ingredients. If a higher level of VOCs is flying about, you can experience nasty issues including headaches, nausea, and vomiting.

These issues are scary enough to make you want to hibernate. But fear not! Regular HVAC maintenance can scare away these problems and more:

  • Annual maintenance: Just like you need a yearly checkup to keep in good working order, so does your HVAC. Schedule an inspection and maintenance work every year by a trusted professional to stay healthy and avoid surprises.
  • Filter away: Whether you are using your air conditioner or your heater, your filters are working hard to trap certain particles from invading your breathing space. Replace these filters about every 3 or 4 months to keep the system working optimally.
  • Clean your ducts: Filters can only do so much – don’t forget your ducts are part of the process too! Keep these clean to keep humidity down and to allow proper airflow throughout your home. Regular professional maintenance can find issues and repair then before the issues become ghoulish.
  • Use dehumidifiers and air purifiers: Dust, mold, and other particles simply love to invade your home. Even with air filters and regular maintenance, some pesky particles will still sneak in. As an added defense against unwanted guests, use a dehumidifier plus an air purifier to prevent dust and pollution from getting together and creating havoc with your indoor air.

If you prefer a treat instead of a trick this Halloween, contact the experts at Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning. Regardless of the size, age, or make of your current HVAC system, we will make sure that it runs smoothly and efficiently all year round. Banish ghastly air forever!

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.
