Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in the Main Line. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfy and keep up with air conditioner service as we move into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris can build up around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively affect 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 short sleeves, the next day you’ll need a long sleeve shirt. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in the Main Line which makes seasonal transitions better. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
