Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in York. 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 does her own thing. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we transition into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris can pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively impact 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 short sleeves, the next day you’ll need a sweater. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in York which makes seasonal transitions better. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
