Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Get 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 keep up with the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay comfortable and keep on top of air conditioner service as we transition into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris can build up around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to pick up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively affect 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.
