The True Value of HVAC Care

It’s not going to be the most exciting thing on your list, so it can be all too easy to put off the HVAC repair Jacksonville, FL homes really need. You won’t see the difference like you do with a new coat of paint on the walls and you won’t be able to show it to your dinner guests like a kitchen remodel, but regular maintenance for your HVAC system is crucial to your home’s comfort, functionality, and value.

Hidden Costs of Neglecting HVAC Repair Jacksonville Homes Need

Many people have had to stretch out their budgets to the point where they try to avoid spending money on anything that isn’t absolutely necessary. For some people, HVAC maintenance and repair falls into the category of things they don’t need to get done right away, so it gets delayed. But is maintenance unimportant? The true value of regular maintenance and repair may actually be a lot higher than you think. When it really comes down to it, the hidden costs of neglecting maintenance and HVAC repair causes Jacksonville, FL homeowners to spend much more money in the long run.

First Step in Preventing HVAC Repair

The key to saving money on your HVAC system in the long run is scheduling regular maintenance to keep your system running smoothly. Here’s why maintenance is so important.

Maintenance gives your Jacksonville HVAC system a longer lifespan. The longer you neglect your HVAC system, the harder it has to work to try to keep up with the temperature demands of your home. Properly maintaining your HVAC system can potentially even double its lifespan, which gives you that much longer before you’ll have to purchase a new system, which is much more costly than a few maintenance visits.

Maintenance makes your HVAC work more effectively. If you don’t properly maintain it, it won’t be long before the difference is noticeable in your HVAC’s performance and your corresponding energy bill. The more time there is between maintenance visits, the louder it could start to operate and the longer it will take to fully cool your home.

Maintenance saves you money on energy usage. Have you noticed that your home isn’t getting as cool as it should be, but somehow your energy usage seems to be steadily increasing? If so, it may be a sign that you’ve been putting off maintenance for too long. An HVAC system without proper maintenance is a system that has to operate more frequently and for a longer time to get your home to the right temperature. Each time your HVAC system kicks on and has to keep running, it’s costing you energy and money.

Maintenance saves you money for repairs. When an HVAC professional performs maintenance, they’ll also be keeping an eye out for potential problems. This means you’ll be able to find small problems before they become major issues that result in a full-on breakdown. When you get ahead of costly problems before they happen, you can save a lot of money and better plan for future expenses, instead of having your HVAC system suddenly quit without warning.

HVAC Repair to Prepare For                           

Of course, HVAC service and repair go hand in hand, and it’s not unlikely that one of your regular HVAC maintenance checks will bring a problem to your attention. Like maintenance, you can usually save yourself a lot of hassle and money by taking care of it as soon as possible. It costs a lot less to seal a crack in your ducts than it will later to replace a section of collapsed duct work. Replacing a part before it fully breaks can often prevent further damage to your HVAC system that would then also require repair work. You can probably see how regular HVAC care can really save you some serious money in the long run.

But don’t just rely on an HVAC contractor to make sure your system remains in good repair. There are several signs of impending HVAC repair Jacksonville, FL homeowners can watch for themselves to stay ahead of any potential issues.

  • Don’t wait until a hot day to run your AC or an extremely cold day to turn on your heater. Choose a day to turn your HVAC system on when you don’t really need it to make sure it’s working; that way you won’t find out there’s a problem during a time you need it.
  • Listen to your system when it turns on, and pay attention to any loud or unusual noises.
  • If you do any maintenance yourself, get in the habit of looking around. You’ll get a better idea of what it’s supposed to look at, and be able to spot problems faster.

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.

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.
