Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives

October 11, 2016

Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Columbia. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how unpredictable 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 move into furnace season?

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

The thermometers aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris usually accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the leaves and limbs, 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. 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 Columbia which makes seasonal transitions better. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
