Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Hickory. 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 her own thing. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris can build up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively inhibit 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 a sweater. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually keep up with the weather in Hickory which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
