5 Helpful Tips
Before you begin to clean your AC unit, make sure you shut off the power. Working around electrical appliances can be dangerous if you do not take appropriate precautions.
Make sure the outside of your AC unit is cleared of dirt and debris. Remove the fan cage from the exterior condenser/compressor and clear away leaves and other debris from the interior.
Remove outer covers from the exterior condenser/compressor and remove outer dirt. Use a fin cleaning spray or a gentle water stream from a hose to remove buildup from the fins.
Using a fin straightener or butter knife, make sure the fins are straight and evenly spaced. Be gentle to avoid damaging the tubing within the fins.
The filter in your HVAC system needs to be changed regularly, at least twice a year.
Cut back any low hanging vegetation and branches that may interfere. Remove any built up leaves, grasses, etc. from the area surrounding your outdoor compressor.
