To the uninformed homeowner, an air conditioning system is just a complicated appliance that requires a trained and certified HVAC professional to maintain and service. While the bulk of this statement is true, there are definitely some procedures on how to clean an AC condenser that can be accomplished by a careful and attentive do it yourselfer.

How It Happens
One of the most important factors that determines whether an AC system runs safely, reliably and affordably is the condition of the condenser unit. The condenser is the part of the AC system that does the actually cooling of the refrigerant and thus the air. In actuality, the condenser merely removes the bulk of the heat form the air and thus leaves a much cooler refrigerant behind.

Where It Happens
The condenser is that part of your AC system that sits outside your home. If you stand near it, you will notice that there is a substantial amount of heat that is generated by the unit. This heat needs to be rapidly dissipated for the condenser to work efficiently. Keeping the vents, tubes and fan blades clean and free of debris will improve your machine’s reliability, durability and affordability.

Cleaning an AC Condenser
AC condensers are self-contained units so as long as you keep any water or detergent away from the electrical connections, you will have no problems with cleaning.

One of the most important things to make sure you have working well as the heat of summer comes into full swing is your air conditioning. If you’re experiencing problems with the ac condenser not running, turning on and off repeatedly, or the air not cooling, it could be that you need to repair or replace the condenser.

Where to Start with Condenser Repair
The first thing you should do to try to repair your unit is make sure all components are clean. Each component of the unit has its own purpose, and when it comes to the ac condenser, if it’s dirty, it won’t function properly. In fact, too much dirt buildup can lead to it being blocked completely.
Clean the condenser unit and coils, and remember to change your air filter once a month to avoid unnecessary dirt and dust buildup.
