Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives

October 11, 2016

Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Ellsworth. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into furnace season?

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

The temperatures aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris tend to accumulate 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 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 a sweater. Smart thermostats are linked to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Ellsworth which makes seasonal transitions better. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
