October is when most places start to experience the cool of fall, when the leaves begin to turn. By Halloween, the true autumn chill has set in.
We don’t live in “most places.” Southern California experience warm and sometimes hot Octobers, and we’re in the middle of one of those right now. Because of this, you want to make sure that the “trick” part of “trick or treat” isn’t your air conditioner tricking you and failing its job. The scariest things you want to encounter during Halloween are old horror movies on TV, not a busted AC that’s turning your home into a heated nightmare.
