Your air conditioner has made it through another summer, but we all know how weird 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 fall? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are dropping, leaves and debris can pile up around your outdoor unit this fall. If you haven’t gotten around to raking the entire yard, make a point to clean up around your outdoor air conditioner unit.
