Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Get out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Lake Charles. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she does what she wants. How do you stay comfortable and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris tend to build up around your outdoor unit this time of year. 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 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 long sleeves. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually keep up with the weather in Lake Charles which makes seasonal transitions better. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
