Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives10/11/2016Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Bakersfield. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay cozy and keep up with air conditioner service as we transition into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The thermometers aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris usually pile 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 hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually monitor the weather in Bakersfield which makes seasonal transitions simpler. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to boost your energy efficiency and comfort.
