Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfortable and keep on top of air conditioner service as we transition into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris usually accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively affect the air flow into your system, causing it to degrade performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season.
