Lower Heating Bills In The Winter

Lower Heating Bills In The Winter

We are all looking for ways to keep costs down. While there are some “wants” that we can cut out of our lives, we quickly note that there are some things that we just need to spend money on. For example, if you live in a place where cold weather reigns in the winter time, you are going to use your heater. Whether you live in a six-bedroom home or a one-bedroom apartment, you are no doubt going to look at your energy bill at the end of the month and shake your head at just how much a little bit of heat adds up. With this in mind, it is vital to do the little things that will help you lower your heating bills when the temperature drops in Jacksonville, Florida.

For us Floridians who are used to the warmer weather, a slight drop in the weather can feel more like 20-degrees outside. For some of us Jacksonville, Florida residents, there’s no way we’d go through a winter without our heater. With that said, one of the best ways to cut down on your heating costs is to wear a sweater and sweatpants when you are home. The warmer you are able to keep yourself in regards to the clothing you wear, the less you are going to have to use your heater. You don’t need to wear a parka to keep warm, just wear a simple sweater around the house. This way you can set your thermostat to 68 instead of 75, which can save you a surprising amount of money over the weeks. In addition, if you are still a little bit cold when you are watching television or lying in bed, reach for a couple extra blankets instead of a couple extra degrees.

In addition to the basic things that you can do to keep your energy costs down during the winter months, there are also some more “involved” things that you can do as well. For example, you can do things like checking your windows to make sure that they are properly weather sealed. If cold air can come in through improperly sealed windows and doors, it is going to cause you to turn the temperature up in your home. In addition, you can also replace any insulation that needs to be replaced, and paint over any exposed wood on the outside of your home. This may take a bit of investment (especially when it comes to getting new windows and doors), but it can save you a whole lot of money on your energy costs for years to come.

Another great way to lower heating costs is through a furnace and heating unit inspection. One of our specialized Jacksonville, Florida, technicians will be happy to provide an in-home inspection to ensure the proper steps are being taken to make for a more productive furnace. Don’t suffer through a painful winter when you can enjoy you r home with the help of Snyder Heating & Air.

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.
