Getting Your Home Ready for Spring

Posted by

Spring is almost here! Warmer weather waits just around the corner. That means open windows, sunny skies, and beautiful days that beg for long walks and time outdoors.

When you head indoors at last, however, you will want to make certain your home is ready for the change of seasons. Spring may mean gorgeous weather, but it also means a new crop of allergens, humidity, and the perfect time have your HVAC unit checked and cleaned. Get ready for the spring with these tips!



Hmidity on the Rise

The warmer the weather gets, the more the humidity increases – us Jacksonvillians are all too familiar with the oppressive summer heat. Once humidity levels reach the 30%-50% range, our homes become less comfortable. We feel hot, sticky, and altogether unpleasant. While we may not care for the muggy days, mold certainly does.

To combat both potential issues with mold and your own discomfort, you may be interested in a whole-house dehumidifier. This can help keep humidity low enough to keep us content while preventing mold from growing.

Oh Jeez, Allergies

As the warmer weather hits and the local flora starts producing pollen overtime, allergy sufferers curse the change of season. You can, however, minimize your allergic reactions but reducing our exposure to allergens.

While it may be tempting to open your windows and leave them that way, resist the urge to leave them open all day and night. Closing up at night, or limiting the time you have your windows open, can help to keep allergens out of your home.

Damaged or loose ductwork can also allow allergens into your home. Have an HVAC professional seal your ductwork and keep allergens outside where they belong. Additionally, dirty ductwork is a veritable playground for allergens like dust, dander, and pollen. Schedule a professional air duct cleaning to eliminate household allergens so you can breathe easy!

Small Steps Add Up to Cleaner Spring Air

You might be surprised at how big a difference some small habits can make when it comes to improving your indoor air quality and minimizing allergies. Try these steps to prep for spring:

  • Change the air filter in your HVAC unit. This will allow it to better filter allergens from the air. It will also keep your unit running at peak efficiency!
  • Take off your shoes when you come inside. Every time you come indoors, you track in dirt, pollen, and other debris that can decrease your air quality.
  • Change your bedding weekly. When you wash it, do so in hot water. This helps prevent dust mites in your home. This is especially important in spring, as insects increase in numbers, and for those who have sensitive skin!
  • Replace your kitchen sponges regularly. Their constant moisture can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.

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.
