Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives

October 11, 2016

Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Keokuk. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay comfy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into furnace season?

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

The temps aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris usually accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to pick up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively impact the air flow into your system, causing it to break down.

Install a Smart Thermostat

Fall is a transitional season. One day you could be wearing short sleeves, the next day you’ll need a long sleeve shirt. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Keokuk which makes seasonal transitions better. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
