Prepare your Home for the Winter

Prepare your Home for the Winter

The cold weather is upon and with it comes a necessary maintenance plan to ensure your Jacksonville, Florida home can handle the drop in temperatures. Fall is the ideal time to perform a heating tune-up so when you’re ready to turn up the heat, your system can handle it!

Your first step to ensure your heating system is ready for winter is to replace your air filter. A dirty air filter will make the equipment work harder which can damage the system and waste energy. Next, clear the area around your furnace. Storing items adjacent to your furnace creates a fire hazard and may block the combustion air supply. When combustion air supply is blocked, the risk for carbon monoxide increases.

Turn on your furnace and listen to any eerie sounds that may indicate a problem. Sniff around the area to ensure there aren’t any odd smells that could indicate burnt gears or rust.

Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you should neglect your air conditioner. Clear any debris from the outdoor unit, including leaves, grass clippings and other debris. Cover your outdoor unit next to keep it safe from the harsh weather and debris through the unit.

Lastly, and most importantly, contact the professionals at Snyder Heating and Air to complete your heating maintenance service. We’ll be happy to provide a thorough inspection, fix any issues the heating components may have, and offer a complete service so you stay comfortable through the holidays and beyond.

To schedule your heating service, contact our expert technicians today. Now is the best time to schedule an affordable, on-site heating service before the temperature dips any further.

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.
