Jacksonville’s Winter Forecast

Posted by
Ed Miller on Fri, Oct 31, 2014

Winter is just around the corner and Jacksonville is already starting to feel its effects. However, the cold temperatures of early fall won’t compare to the freezing temperatures that winter and the new year will bring about. Before the mercury really starts to drop, residents will need to be sure they are prepared by looking into Jacksonville’s winter forecast.

Jacksonville’s extended weather forecast powered by today’s advanced weather technology, provides residents with an accurate representation of what’s to come so they can prepare their homes for the cold.

December Forecast

The month of December is typically always cooler than November and this year according to the Farmers Almanac, Jacksonville’s weather will be even colder this December than previous years. However, along with the slightly cooler weather is also going to come a considerable more amount of rain. The Jacksonville forecast for rain in December 2014 shows that there will be an increase in precipitation since it’s the beginning of an El Niño season.

January Forecast

In the month of January, the forecast shows much lower temperatures than normal and a lot more precipitation than Jacksonville residents are used to. By January 1st – and really by the holidays in December – the precipitation will be quite heavy and temperatures will be quite cold. In fact, most people in Jacksonville will find themselves adding another layer to their winter attire when they step out in the morning and evening, as well during the warmest parts of the day for that matter.

Most likely, you will be running your heater often from now until January 2015. Proper planning and preparation will ensure that your home’s HVAC system is capable of keeping your warm this winter. Remember, the cold can actually be dangerous for the young and elderly, especially if your heating system goes out.

Get Your HVAC System Inspected

Now is the perfect time to get your heating system inspected by an HVAC professional. There are numerous benefits of having an professional inspection now instead of waiting for the next big freeze!

The first and perhaps most important part of getting your HVAC system inspected before it actually turns cool is protecting yourself and your family from the cold temperatures. After all, being cold in your own home can lead to illness – even if it’s just pesky things like a common cold.

Another major benefit of having your HVAC system inspected is that you can help to prevent costly repairs. When you don’t turn your heating system on for months and months – assuming that you didn’t this spring or summer – little things can start to go wrong. If you run your HVAC system with minor problems, those small problems can turn into very big ones over the course of an entire winter season, running the heat each and every day.

By scheduling an inspection before the beginning of Jacksonville’s winter season, you’ll have a much more reliable heating system, free of efficiency problems. This means lower heating bills and that could save you hundreds of dollars.  Regular maintenance provides the best value for your wallet and the overall health and efficiency of your system.

Schedule Regular HVAC Tune-Ups

Regular HVAC tune-ups keep your system working efficiently and help prevent small problems from turning into major issues that cost a fortune to repair. These tune-ups are also good for the little things that homeowners tend to forget, like changing your filter. Schedule your HVAC tune-ups at least twice per year and have your service provider remind you when it’s time.

What Else Can I Do?

Having regular HVAC inspections, at least twice a year, will keep your system working its best and help your family to stay comfortable throughout the freezing temperatures headed our way. However, there are some other simple things you can do in your home to make sure you’re warm and your heating bills aren’t too high.

  • Check your insulation in the attic. A well-insulated attic should have at least six inches of insulation above the eaves. If you can see exposed joists, chances are you need more insulation to keep your home warm throughout the season.

  • Replace old windows with lo-E windows. These insulated windows will help keep warm air in during the winter and cool air in during the summer.

If you want to be equipped for the cold weather and comfortable in your home this winter, now is the time to prepare. Have your heating system inspected by a service professional and any necessary repairs taken care of, otherwise you could be left out in the cold or in need of an expensive emergency service that truly was avoidable.

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.
