Jacksonvlle, Florida, Technicians Recommend a Maintenance Service

The leaves are starting to fall and the summer storms begin to subside. Football season is here and the scorching heat begins to turn into a cool and crisp wind that can only signify one thing; fall is here. Fall means a lot of things but one of the main perks of the changing seasons is less air conditioning and a lower energy bill. But just because you can turn off your AC unit, does not mean that you can ignore its maintenance. Making a small checklist of the things that you need to maintain while you are doing your fall maintenance on your AC unit may make it easier on yourself.

Here are a few things that should go on your checklist to ensure you get the most out of your AC unit and to also prepare you for turning on the heat when the time comes in just a few months.

    • Check and adjust all safety controls
    • Check burners
    • Check and adjust pilot assembly
    • Adjust burner for efficiency
    • Check for gas leaks in furnace
    • Lubricate all moving parts as needed
    • Check belt and adjust tension
    • Check filters (standard 1″ replacements included)
    • Check flue pipe
    • Shut down central air conditioner
    • Adjust pressure regulator
    • Turn exposed dampers to heating if marked
    • Check crankcase heater
    • Check air circulation

You should also make sure you replace your filter to your AC unit every three months and if you do not have one, we highly recommend that you get one immediately. Dust, hair, and other particles that fly around your home will get stuck in your intake duct and clog. This will result in those dirty particles flying around your home because they are now flying out of your vents. This could also result in you and your family getting sick easily but now knowing why.

While it is better to have a dirty filter than no filter, a dirty filter will make your AC unit work harder than it has to and keep it running thus maintaining a high-energy bill. Call us today and we will give you all of the tips you need to maintain an efficient and “healthy” AC unit. We will also tell you what you need to do to clean out your AC unit or one of our will come to your home and do it for you. Contact Snyder Heating & Air today to schedule your routine, fall maintenance service for your residential or commercial property.

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.

-Nicole Hansen
