Question about Heating & Cooling
take the case off.
look at all the filth in the back fins.
get that out without puncturing anything
or cutting your fingers, or breaking the fan, etc.
Use a hose and MIST spray.. a hard spray will bend the fins
Use 2 dull hacksw blades to straighten fins if many squashed.
Bonus: find the oil hole caps on motor, open, add oil (10w30 fine)
Of course this wont work for punctured units, dead motors, compressors, etc.. but filt is your #1 A/C killer.
Get cleaning! Do it once a year, before it gets hot.
