Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
This tip will not only drastically lower your A/C electric bill it will increase the life of your system. This is 75% of what you pay an A/C tech. to do when you have them out for your annual service. I have over 25 yrs. in the H.V.A.C. industry and this is an insider secret!! #1turn off the system at the thermostat. #2 go out to the condensing unit on the outside. #3 (important) unplug the power disconnect hanging on the wall next to the unit, lift the lid on the small grey box and pull out the the fuses. set them aside. #4 get a water hose and a good spray nozzel and start from the top of the coils and work your way down. The more pressure the better, you should be able to see the water coming through to the inside of the coils when you look through the top. Take your time and really blow that dirt out, you'll really be suprised how dirty they are!! #5 let unit drain for about 15 min. then plug power disconnect back in and enjoy. EXTRA TIP.. I find prespraying with simple green really makes a big differance.
