As winter finally leaves and is replaced by spring, it may be time to prepare your AC for warm weather by cleaning the condenser. You should also have the conditioner inspected – but this is not the same thing! You can clean the AC condenser on your own, at home.


This is the section of the AC which cools the air, and sits outside of your home. There shouldn’t be any problems cleaning the unit as long as it is clear of debris, since it is designed to sit outside in all weather.


The process of cleaning the condenser involves disconnecting the power, cleaning surrounding debris, rinsing the tubes and vents, and making sure nothing is blocking air flow. This can all be accomplished within 20 minutes.
