Your air conditioner has made it through another season, but we all know how unpredictable fall weather can be. Mother nature doesn’t always follow the calendar; she goes her own way. How do you stay cozy and keep on top of air conditioner service as we move into cooler weather? Clean Your Outdoor Unit The temps aren’t the only things that are going down, leaves and debris can accumulate around your outdoor unit this time of year.
