Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Genoa. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we go into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris usually build up around your outdoor unit this time of year. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the leaves and limbs, make a point to sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively inhibit 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 connected to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Genoa which makes seasonal transitions better. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
