Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Shelby. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, 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 keep up with 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 usually accumulate 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. One day you could be wearing a t-shirt, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually keep up with the weather in Shelby which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
