What Warmer Fall Weather Means For Your HVAC System

What Warmer Fall Weather Means For Your HVAC System

Posted by
Ed Miller on Tue, Oct 24, 2017

With a drop in humidity and oppressive temperatures, the fall season is one of the most beautiful times of the year in the Jacksonville area. Like many people, you and your family are likely to enjoy spending time outdoors in the nicer weather. Your home’s HVAC system is probably also enjoying a bit of a break from working continuously to keep your home comfortable.

But as we go through fall, the nights will be cooler, and you will need to start using your heater for those chilly mornings. Now is the time to start thinking about the cooler weather ahead and make sure your HVAC system is ready for it.

Scheduling a Fall Tune-Up

The best way to make sure that your heat will be ready when you need it is to have your heater inspected each fall. Whether you use an air pump to both heat and cool your home, or if you have a standalone heater, an annual service is important. It’s always a good idea to schedule your fall tune-up early in the season. This helps avoid the winter rush that could occur when other people are just turning on their heat and finding out that they have a problem with their unit.

During your fall maintenance appointment, the service technician will thoroughly inspect your air pump or heater to identify any potential issues. Catching mechanical problems at an early stage can often make the difference between a minor repair or one that results in a complete failure of your system. Minor adjustments can be accomplished during a fall tune-up.

Another good reason to never forgo your HVAC’s fall tune-up is the health and safety of you and your family. Electrical connections and wiring are checked for loose connections or fraying that could spark a fire. Your heater will be checked for damage to burners and fuel lines. 

Don’t Forget About Your Filters

It’s important to check your HVAC’s air filters every month whether you are using your heat or air conditioning. A dirty filter can cause the indoor air quality of your home to decline as more contaminants can get into your HVAC system and recirculate throughout your home. This could cause you and your family to experience more allergy symptoms or respiratory issues.

Changing your filters regularly also helps save you money in the long run. Filters that are clogged up with dust, pet dander and other debris decrease the amount of airflow that goes into your HVAC system. This causes your system to work harder, which means more wear and tear coupled with a decreased lifespan.

By following these important steps, you’ll be on your way to a hassle-free heating season. But if an unexpected repair or heating emergency does come up, Snyder Heating & Air Conditioning is ready to take your call 24/7 at [hls_phone_number].

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.
