AC Maintenance

Step 1: Cool Breeze
Most people don't notice their air conditioning units until they stop working. Avoid that headache by cleaning and conditioning your unit. First, turn off the power.

Step 2: Get a Trim
Trim back any shrubbery and remove and leaves, lint or dirt from the outside condenser.

Step 3: Top Off
Remove the top cover with a drill.

Step 4: Comb It Out
If the fins are bent, use a fin comb to straighten them.

Step 5: Hose It Down
Clean the evaporator condensor coils by removing access panels, and use a strong spray from a garden hose to clean it.

Step 6: Clean It Up
Clean the fan blades and dust/vacuum around the motor.


  1. Great post. I just bought a house and the air conditioner was broken. I had to have a hvac repair contractor come fix it. I am very new to home ownership so I don't really know what needs to be done when it comes to the air conditioner. Thanks so much for these tips, I will definitely apply them. I don't want to have to go through this again any time soon.
