Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfy and keep up with 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 tend to pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively inhibit the air flow into your system, causing it to degrade performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season.
