Clean Your Air Conditioner Condenser Unit
Cleaning your air conditioner is an essential part of their maintenance. Most homeowners choose to do this once a year, but it can be done whenever the machine has been used for a long time.
Use a hose with light water pressure to clean the fins by spraying water from the inside of the unit out. Finally, while reassembling your air conditioning unit, make sure that all moving parts are well lubricated with electric motor oil. Don’t use all-purpose lubricating oils because they can damage the bearings in a short amount of time. Older air conditioning units are sometimes fitted with belt compressors, if this is the case for you, make sure to lubricate this portion of your cooling unit as well.
Cleaning your air conditioning unit once a season is important. You’ll extend the life of your unit, keep your home at a more comfortable, temperature and save on energy bills.
