Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Service Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Dallas. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay comfy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we move into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris tend to pile 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 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 tank top, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Dallas which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
