Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Waterloo. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfortable and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps 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 leaves and limbs, 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.
