How to Clean a Window Air Conditioner

3 Reasons to Clean your Air Conditioner. 1. By cleaning the coils and fins more airflow will go through the unit making the unit more efficient. 2. Makes the air coming out in your room cleaner and fresher smelling when your unit is clean. 3. Will extend the life of your air conditioner as it won't work as hard if you keep it clean.

How To Improve Your Air Conditioner's Efficiency - Part 1

Please expand this description. Thank you. Window and portable air conditioners use a lot of power to do their work. Make sure you're getting what you pay for by cleaning your air conditioner out every so often. It's free and can save you lots of money. Just remember to be careful--some air conditioners are heavy. Get help if you need it to move one. Unplug the air conditioner before doing anything in this video! Comments on this video are moderated, due to excessive stupidity. Save my time and yours--if you're not capable of offering constructive feedback, just go away. I'm generally a nice guy and interested in your views, but only if you're able to put together a coherent sentence with some reasoning behind it. Also: please stop suggesting fin combs or that flushing the unit with water and getting some on the electrical wiring was somehow bad. I've seen A/C units with wiring exposed to the weather, and what do you think the natural process of weather is going to do anyway? Letting the unit dry will remove any possibility of an electrical problem.

It's July 17, it's 96°F today, and the forecast is calling for almost 100°F next week. We're not interested in ridges and 200 mb jets, we want to stay cool. So air conditioner maintenance is on the schedule for today. The Arctic King unit shown here was new in July 2014 and hadn't been serviced yet. Look how dirty they get after one year! The LG unit belongs to a friend. It was in worse condition and hadn't been serviced since 2011. It was working okay, but was leaking out the front due to the condensation drain being blocked by junk (filter not cleaned often enough).

There are radiator fin cleaners you can use for this kind of job. I didn't have any of this cleaner on hand, so I went with just basic water and a little detergent (not filmed) this time around.


In Texas Weather, Tim Vasquez (former Air Force meteorologist) breaks down the weather piece by piece. I'll give this a shot as a series and see where it goes... if you like it please like, share, and subscribe and I'll keep cranking them out.
