Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Moline. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we transition into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris tend to build up around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to pick up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively impact the air flow into your system, causing it to degrade 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 a long sleeve shirt. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Moline which makes seasonal transitions better. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
