Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Mechanicsville. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we transition 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 sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively impact the air flow into your system, causing it to affect performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season.
