Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Break out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Newton. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfortable and stay 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 going down, leaves and debris usually build 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 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 a tank top, the next day you’ll need a sweater. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually keep up with the weather in Newton which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
