Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Beaverton. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move 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 fall. 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 affect the air flow into your system, causing it to degrade performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season.
