Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Longview. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfy and keep up with air conditioner service as we go into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps 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 sweep 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 a t-shirt, the next day you’ll need a sweater. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually monitor the weather in Longview which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
