Cleaning my air conditioning system

Central air conditioning system is a necessity in St Petersburg, Florida, then the cooling system runs just about non stop and is important to indoor comfort and air quality, then its performance greatly impacts carbon footprint and budget, and an air conditioning system that is correctly tested lasts longer, costs less to operate and provides greater cooling capacity, then upkeep for the A/C involves servicing both the indoor and outdoor units… One of the most important steps of an air conditioning system tune-up is replacing the air filter.

I buy filters at the local improvement store! Changing the filter takes less than two minutes.

I make an effort to change out the air filter every four to six weeks. I take the time to thoroughly wash the indoor and outdoor components every Spring. I shut down power to the outdoor unit and vacuum the condenser fins located on the top of the air conditioning system. A soft-bristled affixment to the shop vac works well to unaffix grass, dust, leaves and debris that would otherwise inhibit airflower. I am careful not to bend the fins. I unscrew the top grille of the A/C to unaffix the fan and then wash it with a damp cloth, but with the hose set to a fairly light pressure, I spray the inside of the air conditioning system unit. Once everything is put back together, I wait 24 hours before starting up the cooling unit, however for the indoor wall unit, I shut off power and unaffix the rear exhaust panel. I wash the fins and coils with a soft brush affixed to the vacuum cleaner. Once again, I am genuinely careful to not harm the fins. At the button of the unit, there are drain channels that can actually become congested. I use a pipe cleaner to unaffix any dirt or grime from the drains. I also vacuum the front vents and grille.
