Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Break 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 crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we transition into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris tend to accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, 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 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 long sleeves. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually keep up with the weather in Columbia which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
