Keep Your HVAC Working Its Best with These Tips

Your home’s HVAC system helps keep you and your family comfortable throughout the year. It helps keep you warm during the winter and cool during the summer. But to do this efficiently and effectively, it needs to be running at its optimal best. To keep your system running at the top of its game, it does require some preventive maintenance. Here are some tips from Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning to keep your HVAC working at its best.

Replace Your Air Filter When Dirty

Your HVAC system requires a certain amount of airflow for it to operate at its best. If its air filter is clogged with dust, hair, pollen, and other particles, your system cannot get all the air it needs. Your system may continue to operate, but it will struggle to heat or cool your home. This puts extra wear and tear on your system, making it more prone to breakdowns and early death. Make it a habit to check your air filter each month and replace it when it is dirty.

Clean Air Vents and Registers

Dust, pet hair, or dander can find their way into your HVAC system via its air vents and registers. If you see dust around the grilles of your air vents or intakes, take the time to vacuum it away. This can be done each time your vacuum your home. If the dust keeps coming back, your may need to have your air vents cleaned.

Do Not Put Off Repairs

Putting off a repair does not save you money. Instead, the offending part can cause sounding parts to fail. A malfunctioning component can affect your entire system and have a detrimental effect on your HVAC system. If your system is making an unfamiliar noise, it is time to call for service to make sure your system is okay. Otherwise, your system may limp along until it finally breaks down.

Maintain Your Condenser’s Airflow

Your home’s air conditioner has an indoor and an outdoor component. The outdoor component is its condenser cabinet. It is essential to keep the area around the cabinet free of grass, weeds, and other debris that can prevent air from entering the condenser to help with heat dispersal.

Give Your HVAC System a Break

There are a few sweet spots every year in between spring and winter where you might not need your HVAC system to heat or cool your home. These are great times to give your system a well-deserved break. This can help reduce wear and tear on your system while helping it achieve its expected lifespan.

Professional Preventive Maintenance Twice a Year

The most important thing you can do to keep your HVAC system working is to have it professionally serviced twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. These services ensure that your heater and air conditioner will be ready to get to work the first time you turn them on for the season. The benefits of professional preventive maintenance include the peace of mind that your system is running efficiently and safely.

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.

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.

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.
