Hello, everyone, I'm Joshua Clement. And today, I'm going to talk to you about some directions and tips on how to clean out your air conditioner. Over the summer, a lot of dust build up happens on your coil. So, it's important to go ahead and clean those up before you put it into storage. For this job, I'm going to be using some air freshener and a paper towel. The reason I like to use air freshener to clean up the air conditioner, is that way when you turn on your air conditioner. That fresh smell blows throughout the entire house. Because all your air that travels through the air conditioner, disperses into the house. It's going to carry that fragrant smell and create a nice smell throughout the house. So, the first step to cleaning, is go ahead and remove the front cover. As you can see right here, on the coils there's a lot of dust and dirt build up on that. We're going to take the rag and just start wiping that down. So, we're just going to take our paper towel and wipe that dust down. We don't want to wipe it across because the way the coils are run. We want to make sure that we stay vertical with our coils and wipe down to the base of the unit. And if it's stuck on there pretty tight, you can go ahead and take your air freshener and spray it on there and loosen it up a little bit. You want to make sure that you don't press too hard on your coils because it can cause them to bend and damage your unit. You just want to lightly brush them to get the dust and debris off of there. It's important to make sure that your unit is free of all dust and debris. That way the air can travel through there smoothly and it won't cause any damage through the summer seasons. Thank you all for watching and good luck with this project.
