In Memory

Our beloved Boss, Phil Snyder, closed his eyes on earth and woke up in Heaven on August 4, 2019; ten days before his 70th birthday.

Phil loved God, his family, his friends and his business. He loved fishing. Phil was just a loving man. He was our mentor, our friend, our “Boss.”

In January 2014 the Valley Morning Star did a Question & Answer write-up on Snyder Air Conditioning. One of the questions was: What is the main focus of your company? Phil’s response was: “Customer service. Our whole concept is client retention. We want to gain the trust of our clients and give them quality service and the best value for their money.”

Phil left us a great legacy. As we continue serving our great community and our wonderful clients, we will uphold the many things that he taught us and instilled in us. We will follow the guidelines that he laid out before us.

Phil was greatly loved and admired and we miss him greatly.

Mission Statement


Our purpose is to provide excellence in all areas of service to customers. Our contracting work is not only at the jobsite – it is within all forms of communications and contact with customers, vendors, and team members.

Our Team

We strive to work as a team, on a common mission, in pursuit of the same high ideals. We hire, train, motivate, and reward based on 3 main hallmarks: Integrity, Personal Responsibility, and Commitment. We expect our team members to perform to high standards with enthusiasm and willingness to “do the unexpected” to serve our purpose.

Our Goals are Your Goals

“Ultimate Customer Service” is the mutual goal of our company and customers. This requires enthusiastic team training and cooperation. So our goal is actually a process to continually improve our technical, business, and customer skills.

Our Promotions and Profitability

Without promotion of our business, our mission fails. Our promotions will educate, inform, and persuade customers to seek our contracting work. With more customers, we can and will operate profitably. As a prudent business, this allows us to increase service, training, add guarantees, purchase better equipment and improve safety. Without these, quality contracting is not possible.


As leaders, we expect to be copied in the market and - to some extent - consider that a compliment. Yet we are more complimented if that imitation includes treating team members and customers with absolute respect, care, and understanding. Team members are encouraged to put family and faith above work. Customers are encouraged to give feedback – good or bad – in our efforts to continually improve. We respond to any fresh viewpoint that results in a positive change, regardless of source.

Things to Consider in the Cooler Months

  • Upgrade your Thermostat to a Programmable Thermostat
  • If you lower your thermostat 7-10 degrees you can save 10% on your bill.
  • Make sure your filters are clean and are the right size.
  • Make sure your vents aren’t blocked.
  • Avoid heating rooms that are not insulated, like a garage or crawl space.
  • Get a Clean & Check just to make sure everything are running properly.
  • Led bulbs use 75% less energy and last 25 times longer.
  • Seal windows and doors. A trick to making sure there sealed is to put a dollar between the door/window and close it. If you can easily pull the dollar out it is time to replace the seal.
  • Use rugs to insulate floors.
  • Reverse your ceiling fans to make you feel warmer.

Why Clean & Checks Are Important

When we do a maintenance call on your unit, we call them Clean & Checks. This is what it entails:

We check the filter, check to see if the coil is rusted or slimy, check the drain line add drain tabs if it’s needed, check the electrical. We take a temperature split, check the pressures, check the capacitor and contactor. If all goes well your unit should be in tip top shape for the next six months. During winter time we make sure the heater is working fine and there are no issues with it so it’ll keep your warm during the colder months.

If you haven’t had a Clean & Check in more than six months you should really consider getting it done. Give us a call at 956-428-6603 or 956-425-0175 so we can get one scheduled for you.

Your unit will run more efficiently if its maintained and checked regularly.
