Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Savage. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfortable and keep up with air conditioner service as we move into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris can pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. 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 inhibit the air flow into your system, causing it to affect performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season. One day you could be wearing a tank top, the next day you’ll need a long sleeve shirt. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually keep up with the weather in Savage which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
