How can I help maintain my AC unit and keep it clean?

Proper maintenance of your AC parts can go a long way in extending the life and enjoyment of your unit. Here are just a few points to keep in mind:

  • Remove the cover (usually a few screws), take out the air filters and wash them in detergent.
  • Clean the outside condenser coil (you'll know it because it looks like a mini radiator). Make sure you have the power turned off and wrap the wiring and motor with plastic baggies. Then spray water through the coil. Be careful not to wet the electrical parts.
  • While the poer is turned off, inspect the wiring at the switches, thermostat and compressor for discoloration (signs of excessive heat, like burning). Replace any terminals you find that are discolored. (They are very inexpensive).

Other than that, keep cool!
