Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Orange County. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfortable and keep on top of air conditioner service as we go into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris tend to pile up 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 impact 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 short sleeves, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Orange County which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
