Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Gresham. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfortable and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris can 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 affect the air flow into your system, causing it to affect performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season.
