Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Excelsior Springs. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris can pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the leaves and limbs, make a point to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively affect the air flow into your system, causing it to break down. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season. One day you could be wearing short sleeves, the next day you’ll need a sweater. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Excelsior Springs which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
