Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Topeka. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris tend to accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to sweep up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively inhibit 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 connected to Wi-Fi and actually monitor the weather in Topeka which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
