Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives


Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Lake Forest. Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always keep up with the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfortable and stay on top of air conditioner service as we go into cooler weather?

Clean Your Outdoor Unit

The temperatures aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris tend to build up around your outdoor unit this fall. 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 impact 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 short sleeves, the next day you’ll need long sleeves. Smart thermostats are hooked up to Wi-Fi and actually track the weather in Lake Forest which makes seasonal transitions easy. They also learn your schedule and behaviors to maximize your energy efficiency and comfort.
