Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go 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.
