Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives

October 11, 2016

Bust 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 follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfy 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 dropping, leaves and debris can build up around your outdoor unit this time of year. 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 affect 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 long sleeve shirt. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Gresham which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
