Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Tucson. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, 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 cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris tend to accumulate around your outdoor unit this season. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to pick up around your outdoor air conditioner unit. Debris can negatively inhibit the air flow into your system, causing it to affect performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season. One day you could be wearing short sleeves, the next day you’ll need a long sleeve shirt.
