How Much is it Costing you to Breathe Comfortably?

When considering your option for HVAC in Jacksonville, whether it is a new installation or maintenance of an existing system, one factor to keep in mind is to consider how much it is going to cost to keep you breathing comfortably.

When it comes to air quality, you will want to consider the follow factors.

Cost of Initial Installation

Installation is going to be the largest initial outlay of money for the homeowner, which is why it is important for you to do your homework. Purchase the most efficient unit you can afford, which will save you costs in running and maintaining the unit down throughout its lifetime. Make sure that your Jacksonville HVAC contractor carries various lines of equipment in order to give you a choice of brands. You should look to see if they are factory certified in both installation and service. This will assure you that your Jacksonville HVAC contractor will install your unit properly and will be able to give you the best service, ensuring that you get the optimum service life from the unit that you purchase.

Proper and Professional Installation

Your HVAC Jacksonville contractor will ideally be factory trained and certified in the installation of the unit that you purchase. This is important because one of the biggest causes of HVAC system failure is due to improper installation. Also, a true professional will be in and out of your living space with minimal disruption to your daily routine. They will either have all the parts on hand for proper installation, or they will have easy access to the parts.

Ongoing Maintenance

Another cost in running your HVAC system is ongoing maintenance of the system. Your reputable Jacksonville HVAC contractor can help you with this. A properly maintained system will have a long and efficient service life. Your contractor can show you how to change the air filters and also any other maintenance a homeowner might be able to do. If you are not comfortable with doing the maintenance yourself, your contractor most likely offers service contracts for a nominal fee. With a service contract, your HVAC Jacksonville contractor can change your filters as recommended by the manufacturer of the unit, as well as give the unit a cleaning and an adjustment of any part, or even replacement, as needed.


There are important incidentals that your professional HVAC contractor is trained to notice and help you take corrective action in order to keep your HVAC system run at peak efficiency, helping you save money over the service life of your HVAC unit. A good starting point is the “brains” of your HVAC unit, the thermostat. Your Jacksonville HVAC contractor can suggest and install for you a programmable unit. They can teach you how to use your programmable thermostat to run your unit at peak efficiency, saving you up to hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs.

Another way your contractor can help you with efficiency is by checking out the integrity of your window systems. A good contractor can suggest upgrades and maintenance of your window that will help keep energy waste to a minimum.

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.
