Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Baltimore. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go into furnace season? 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 season. 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 inhibit 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 tank top, the next day you’ll need a sweater. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Baltimore which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
