If you would like to set started with a quick home clean till we arrive, here are the steps to clean your air conditioning unit.

HVAC Cleaning Step 1: Switch Off the Power & Unplug the Unit

As with all electrical appliances, you must switch off the A/C before you start cleaning it. Flip the switch on the unit, then unplug at the power source to be safe from electrocution.

HVAC Cleaning Step 2: Unscrew the Fan Grill to Remove Rubble & Dirt from Inside

Move the fan grill to make way for cleaning the inside of the unit. Vacuum all the dust inside, then wipe all surfaces – including the grill – with a damp cloth and a few drops of cleaning chemicals. Or if you’re like us we like to be a green as possible, why not try a combination of ½ water and ½ vinegar inside a spray bottle. Shake the solution well and apply it to the evaporator coil and condenser coil. It is fine to give it a good soaking. Allow some of the solution to drip away and wipe away the remaining solution with the cleaning rags. Vinegar will not harm the parts and is a very effective cleaner.

HVAC Cleaning Step 3: Clear Algae from Tubes & Drainpipes

Brush out algae and other debris that may cause blockage in the tubes and pipes. This will make the system run more efficiently.

HVAC Cleaning Step 4: Wash the Fins with a Garden Hose Then Wipe Them Down

Use medium water pressure to clear dust from the gaps between the fins without breaking them. Dry the fins with a cloth once you’ve removed all particles, then return them to their place.

HVAC Cleaning Step 5: Replace the Blower Filter With a New One

The blower filter collects a lot of impurities, so it’s crucial to replace it every month or so. This keeps the quality of air in your home or business as clean as possible.

HVAC Cleaning Step 6: Return Everything Where It Belongs

This step is self-explanatory. Don’t forget any part of the unit – everything must go back to its place.

HVAC Cleaning Step 7: Run the System to Test

Once every part of the air conditioning is dry; you can plug in and switch on to check if the cleaning worked. The air should smell and feel cleaner than it did before.
