Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Heflin. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfortable and stay on top of air conditioner service as we transition into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris tend to accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively impact the air flow into your system, causing it to degrade performance. 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.
