Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Payson. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay cozy and stay on top of air conditioner service as we transition into furnace season? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are falling, leaves and debris tend to accumulate around your outdoor unit this time of year. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, 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 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 long sleeves. Smart thermostats are connected to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Payson which makes seasonal transitions better. They also pick up on your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
