Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives

October 11, 2016

Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Cedar Rapids. Your air conditioner has made it through another year, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into cooler weather?

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

The temps aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris tend to pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, 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 t-shirt, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually monitor the weather in Cedar Rapids which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also adapt to your schedule and behaviors to make the most of your energy efficiency and comfort.
