How Can I Safely Clean My AC Unit?

A well-maintained air conditioning unit will not only help to increase its lifespan but will save on energy costs. It is recommended to seek the assistance of a reputable HVAC technician to handle maintenance needs, but you can conduct basic cleaning of your air conditioner unit on your own. Follow these tips to clean your air conditioner unit and get it ready to tackle the summer heat. 

  • Clean the exterior condenser by removing any large debris such as leaves and twigs; and use an outdoor vacuum to remove other noticeable debris
  • You may use a garden hose with light water pressure to gently spray the fins
  • It is important to change your air filter regularly; if you have a permanent filer, wash it outside with the garden hose and let it dry before reinstalling it

Once you have completed all these steps, run the air conditioning system to ensure it functions properly. Remember it is best to have a qualified, reputable HVAC technician perform periodic checks on your system and other components to prevent issues and damage.
