Keeping Your Home Comfortable As Fall Arrives Posted October 11, 2016 Bust out the pumpkin spice, fall is officially in the air in Hattiesburg. Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how crazy fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she does her own thing. How do you stay comfortable and keep up with air conditioner service as we transition into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temperatures aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris tend to accumulate 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 affect the air flow into your system, causing it to affect performance. Install a Smart Thermostat Fall is a transitional season.
