Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how weird fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always adhere to the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay comfy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we go into fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris tend to pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the sticks and leaves, make a point to pick up around your outdoor air conditioner unit.
