Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Lexington. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay comfortable 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 usually build up around your outdoor unit this season. 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 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 short sleeves, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Lexington which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
