Get Your Air Conditioner Ready For Summer

It might be hard to believe, but summer is almost here! Hot days full of sun and fun are just around the corner. While the weather in Jacksonville is gorgeous and perfect for heading outside, it feels like a real luxury to have a cool, air-conditioned house to retreat to after a day in the sunshine.

Now is the time to get your HVAC system ready for the warmest months of the year. You’ll want to ensure everything is ready to cool you down before summer’s change in temperature puts extra strain on your system. Get started on these summer air conditioning maintenance tips now so you don’t have to worry about it when you’d rather be out enjoying yourself!

  • Change your air filter

    You probably did this before winter set in, and changed it once more in the middle of the colder months. (You did change the filter, didn’t you? Of course, you did!) With the swap over to air conditioning usage, it’s a fantastic time to get a fresh filter in your HVAC system. Ensure you’re using filters with the proper MERV rating!

  • Clear the area around your outside unit

    You might already have headed into your yard to start spring planting or a little bit of weeding. Next time you take to the yard, clear the grass, clippings, leaves, and other debris from around the exterior unit. Debris can get into the system, or block airflow and cause the system undue stress. Remove shrubs and branches from the two feet around the unit

  • Make certain vents are unblocked and open

    Take a walk through your home to check your vents and registers. Make sure they are all open, including in unused rooms, as that isn’t a good way to save on energy. Ensure no rugs or furniture are blocking your return vents. It wouldn’t hurt to give the vents a good wipe-down, either.

  • Set your thermostat for cooling success

    Smart thermostats are a terrific way to cool your home down the right way while saving money! As the weather warms, you may want to adjust your thermostat settings to account for warmer temperatures, different bedtimes, and any trips you intend to take.

  • Set up a summer tune-up appointment for your HVAC system

    Your air conditioner will have more to do, now that summer is here. Ensuring the system is in good, working order is an important way to both keep your home cool and prolong your air conditioner’s longevity. Have a professional check-up on your system to keep it in top shape for years to come!

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.
