Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement, and today I'm going to talk to you about the best way to store your air conditioner through the winter. It's important to store your air conditioner correctly, that way you don't damage any of the parts and have to replace it through the summer. The best way to store the air conditioner is just like it sits in the window. You wanna keep it nice and flat. You don't want it tilted back, on it's side, or face up. What that's gonna do is allow all the liquid inside, there's liquid freon, and it all congregates in one area. It needs to be nice and level, so that way, it can all stay in the pipes and not be congregating in one area. It's important to keep these coils covered up. You don't want anything knocking into it and damaging these coils. When these coils are damaged, it's gonna effect the amount of air that it pushes through the system, and it's not gonna be as efficient. It's gonna kinda clog up and cause it to slow down and not move enough air through there. It's also important to go ahead and clean out your filter before you put it into storage. With that dust sitting in your filter, it's going to harden on there, and it's gonna be very difficult to get off. So, you want to clean it right before you put it into storage. It's very important to store your air conditioner correctly, that way, you know when you pull it out in the summer time, it's gonna work for you and you're not going to have to mess with it and fix it. Thank you all for watching and good luck with this project!
