Prepping Your AC for Memorial Day and Summer

Prepping Your AC for Memorial Day and Summer

Memorial Day is right around the corner and so is the hot, steamy weather that comes along with the summer months. Here in the Jacksonville area, you’ll also be soon experiencing swift summer thunderstorms that quickly bring torrential downpours with them. With all the heat and humidity, you want to make sure your home is ready for what’s ahead!

Air Conditioning, the Summer Lifesaver

Nothing is worse than coming home after a long day at work to a stifling hot house. With all the rain that shows up during the summer, the humidity can get very soupy. Your air conditioner is your first line of defense against hot, muggy air.

All air conditioners should be serviced each year, not only to ensure that they are running property, but also for safety reasons. Make sure to check your air conditioner’s air filter once a month and replace it if dirty. This will help maintain proper airflow for your air conditioner and keep it running efficiently, as well as ensure that the air quality in your home is at its best. A well-maintained air conditioner will help keep your energy costs lower, even in the summertime, when temperatures peak.

Strategies for Beating the Humidity

Excess humidity can cause mold and mildew to grow throughout your home and have a negative effective on indoor air quality. Running your air conditioner can help remove some humidity from the air and keep air circulating. Using a dehumidifier or having one added to your existing HVAC system can help make your home more comfortable for Memorial Day and beyond.



The following can help prevent compounding humidity in your home:

  • Using exhaust fans when cooking, doing laundry or bathing
  • Taking shorter and cooler showers
  • Using ceiling or portable fans to keep air circulating
  • Keep windows and doors shut to prevent humid air from getting indoors
  • Seal any leaks around windows or door to keep cooled air in and hot, humid air out

Storm Damage

Summer storms can pose a threat to your AC unit as well. While the unit is built to withstand the elements, Florida summer weather can be tumultuous and, at times, destructive; occasionally things like hail, windblown debris, or standing water from flooding can damage the electrical components and/or the moving parts. Contact a professional if you suspect damage.

In order to prevent further damage to your AC unit:

  • Allow your AC to dry out. Clear standing water and debris from around it if necessary. Don’t cover it with a tarp! Covering your AC unit won’t allow for the proper ventilation and could lead to other problems, rust for example.
  • Deactivate electrical controls to your AC unit. If you are uncomfortable doing so, contact your air conditioning company for help.

If you haven’t already scheduled your yearly air conditioner tune-up by Memorial Day, now is a good time to do so. Contact the air conditioning experts at Snyder Company Heating & Air Conditioning to schedule your tune-up today.

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.
