Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Augusta. 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 goes her own way. How do you stay comfortable and stay on top of air conditioner service as we transition into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris usually 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 pick up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively inhibit 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 a tank top, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Augusta which makes seasonal transitions better. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
