I decided to look on the internet if there was something I needed to think before cleaning an air conditioning for the first time.
It’s self-explanatory to get too ambitious with equipment or machinery that you’re not trained to repair or maintain. My close neighbor told me a story about something ridiculous she did with her current automobile recently. Her dad taught him how to repair cars back in the 90s before many of them displayed computers or the other highly specialized parts and components that many of the cars have off the line in 2020. She bought a current automobile and decided she would do the tune-up himself after owning it for multiple weeks. I don’t think what she broke inside the engine, or exactly how she did it, but she had the automobile in the shop for well over a week trying to reverse the damage and get the automobile driving on the road again. Just like my friend, I nearly jumped head first into something I am not trained to labor with, namely my air conditioning. I opened the air handler a single day and noticed a small amount of mold growth on my coil and on the inside walls of the air handler itself. I almost reached for a rag and some bleach cleaner before I stopped myself. I decided to look on the internet if there was something I needed to think before cleaning an air conditioning for the first time. Just like I had suspected, I instantaneously found forum posts from people asking for cleaning advice and being told to get their Heating, Ventilation and A/C professionals to do the labor for them. At the actually least, the recommendation is to buy the aerosol cleaner made for evaporator coils. If I had used bleach like I was planning to do, I could have destroyed my ’s evaporator coil from corrosion alone. I believe I will wait until my next service appointment and ask the heating and cooling professional to treat the coil while he’s up there.
