Summer means hot, sticky weather and many will turn on the AC. If you have a window AC unit, it’s important to keep it clean so that it runs efficiently and doesn’t break down. Jay’s Heating, Air & Plumbing serving the residents of Mount Airy and surrounding areas has outlined a procedure on how to clean your window AC unit in just a few easy steps.
Steps on How to Clean an AC Window Unit
First, you will need to gather a few supplies. You will need a bucket, some soap, and a sponge. You will also need a ladder if your AC unit is high up.
Next, you will need to turn off your AC unit and unplug it from the outlet. Be sure to do this before you start cleaning.
Now, you can begin washing the outside of the unit. Use your soap and sponge to clean the unit, being careful not to get too close to the fan. Once you have cleaned the outside, you can move on to cleaning the inside.
To clean the inside of your AC unit, you will need to remove the filter. Most filters can be removed by simply pulling them out. Once you have removed the filter, you can wash it with soap and water. Be sure to let it dry completely before putting it back into the AC unit.
Now that you have cleaned both the inside and outside of your AC unit, you can put everything back together and plug it in. Be sure to turn it on and let it run for a few minutes to make sure everything is working properly.
Cleaning your AC unit is an important part of summer maintenance. By taking the time to clean your AC unit, you can help it run more efficiently and avoid costly repairs.
