If cool air isn’t blowing through a window air conditioner’s vents as much as it used to or if air feels warm, a unit’s condenser coil may be dirty and clogged with dust. The following Air Conditioning Services in Palm Desert CA project describes how to clean a condenser unit and apply a rust inhibiting product to metal pieces to protect them from corrosion
* thin metal file
* disposable gloves
* vinyl tarp
* vacuum cleaner
* coil cleaning agent
* rust dissolving gel
* scouring pad
* metal fin tool
* spray bottle
* lint-free cloths
* rust inhibiting spray
Remove A Unit’s Cover And Vacuum And Clean A Coil
After turning off an air conditioner, a thin metal file can be used to pry a unit’s cover off. A pair of disposable gloves should be worn to prevent hands from getting dirty. A vinyl tarp can be laid underneath an air conditioner. A vacuum cleaner’s hose needs to be moved back and forth across the metal pieces that are part of a condenser coil. After loose dust has been collected, a coil cleaning agent should be sprayed across a coil.
Coil cleaner will foam up after it has been applied. When this occurs, a scouring pad should be moved swiftly back and forth over metal pieces to remove hardened residue. If portions of metal are rusted, a paintbrush can be used to apply a coat of rust dissolving gel over them. A clean scouring pad should be wiped across treated metal to eliminate loose fragments of rust.
Straighten Metal, Wipe Down A Unit’s Interior And Apply An Inhibiting Spray
A fin tool can be used to realign metal pieces that are bent. It needs to be pressed directly against metal to bend it. A spray bottle can be filled with water before adding a few drops of detergent to a container. After mixing the components in a bottle, a cleaning agent can be applied to a lint-free cloth. A cloth should be used to wipe off a unit’s interior walls and to clean a unit’s cover. A rust inhibiting spray can be applied to metal pieces to prevent them from corroding.
