Air conditioner maintenance

In Home maintenance tips by Wayne Brewer

This is the time of year as part of your summertime home maintenance routine that it’s important to have the entire air conditioning system checked and serviced.  trim vegetation and remove debris from the exterior condensing unit.  Clean the cooling fins with a hose while the unit is not running.  Change standard furnace filters monthly (put it on your calendar) and check to ensure proper function of the condensate drain system.

NOTE:  NEVER “Power Wash” or use brushes or tools to clean the air conditioning condenser as this may cause damage to the cooling fins and components.
