Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Albuquerque. 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 does what she wants. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we move into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris tend to build up around your outdoor unit this time of year. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively impact the air flow into your system, causing it to break down. 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 linked to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Albuquerque which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
