Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Break 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 keep up with the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we transition into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are falling, 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 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.
