Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Richardson. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we go into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris usually build up around your outdoor unit this time of year. 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 break down. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season. One day you could be wearing a t-shirt, the next day you’ll need a sweater. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually monitor the weather in Richardson which makes seasonal transitions better. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
