Overheating AC Unit

Is your air conditioner getting too hot?

You rely on your air-conditioning unit to keep you cool and comfortable, but what happens when it’s your unit that needs to be saved from the scorching heat? When your unit starts to overheat, it may be too late to solve the problem with a simple repair. It may be time to contact the professional team at Snyder Heating & Air.

What causes units to overheat?

The main purpose of an air-conditioning unit is to remove heat from a designated space. As a result, heat will be discharged from the unit. But it’s important to find out what’s a normal amount of release and what is too much.

Heat is a normal by-product of the cooling process. There are a myriad of reasons that could cause your A/C unit to overheat, including bad bearings in the compressor or fan motors, low Freon levels or even just dirty coils. There are a lot of elements that will factor into your air-conditioning unit’s efficiency and operation. The only real way to know for sure is to contact a technician at Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning to complete a proper inspection.

Easiest Way to Avoid Overheating

One of the most important ways to keep your A/C unit operating at its peak is to routinely change out the air filters. Unfortunately, the air in Jacksonville, Florida, is filled with allergens, dust and dirt that can be seeped into the home’s air. With the low air quality, your filter is working overtime. Changing your filter once a month is the easiest, and most effective way to maintain a consistent air conditioning unit.

Importance of Maintaining Your AC Unit

A new study has shown that July’s average temperature has topped the U.S. records. According to the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, the seven months of 2012 to date are the warmest of any year on record and were drier than average as well. U.S. forecasters started keeping records in 1895. Your unit is working harder than ever so stay on top of your routine A/C maintenance, like changing air filters and removing excess debris from the area.

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.
