Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Kearney. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris can pile up around your outdoor unit this season. 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 degrade performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season. One day you could be wearing a tank top, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually monitor the weather in Kearney which makes seasonal transitions better. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
