When Should I Service My HVAC Unit?

Your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit is one of the key elements in ensuring that you and your family live healthy and comfortable lives. It literally cleans the air you breathe and helps to regulate the temperature in your home. It is your responsibility to ensure that your HVAC unit is serviced and maintained properly so that you can live comfortably without any problems, summer or winter. Most industry experts recommend that the air filter be cleaned or replaced according to the manufacturer’s instructions and that you call in the professionals and have it cleaned thoroughly twice a year, ideally before the onset of summer and winter.
Your home air conditioning unit has been working tirelessly throughout the winter to heat your home and now that summer is here, it will have to work again to keep your family cool and comfortable. The cleaning of your heating and air conditioner system should ideally be done between winter and summer. It is also vital to have your ac unit serviced and any necessary maintenance work or repairs done during this time. Dust, dirt and debris can collect around your HVAC unit’s exterior components. These need to be cleaned to remove any possible restrictions in the air flow. It is essential for your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit to be clear of all such restrictions for free circulation of fresh air in your home.Your HVAC specialist will be the ideal person to advise you on the best routine for maintaining your HVAC system in the best possible condition. Such regular maintenance will also help to extend the life of your HVAC unit. Most residential a/c repair and service companies will offer service packages that include regular visits to check out your unit every few months and change or fix any parts that need to be repaired or changed. It is particularly essential to have a perfectly working heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit in a hot and humid place like Jacksonville, Florida. Another advantage to such service contracts is that you don’t have to worry about scheduling a maintenance visit; they call you for a convenient time to come and perform the maintenance routine.The beginning of summer is the ideal time to have the annual maintenance carried out on your air conditioning unit. Your service company will conduct a thorough investigation and clean the air filter or replace it, tighten any loose screws, remove any blockages and clear the exterior areas of the compressor, too. A professional HVAC unit service provider will carry a check list of things to look for so that you can relax and enjoy a problem free summer. In the Jacksonville FL area, because of the hot and humid summers, it is essential to have a thorough checkup of your HVAC unit at the beginning of summer, even if not before winter. Replacing your air filter can help you to enjoy better indoor air quality and also prolong the life of your HVAC unit. Other parts of your HVAC unit that will need attention before summer are the grill, the evaporator coils and also a check to see if there’s enough lubrication for the fan belt and bearings.

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.
