Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives

October 11, 2016

Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Opelika. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfy and keep up with air conditioner service as we transition into furnace season?

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

The thermometers aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris usually pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively affect 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 monitor the weather in Opelika which makes seasonal transitions better. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
