Beside this, can you power wash your air conditioner?

Never power wash your air conditioner. Although there are ways you can clean your air conditioner, a power washer should never be one of them. These can cause damage to your coil and result in a system breakdown. Schedule a condenser cleaning appointment with your local HVAC guy.

Also Know, can I pressure wash my outside AC unit? No, you shouldn't clean the outside unit by spraying it with your water hose. Water pressure can bend the fins that surround the condenser coil.

Likewise, people ask, is it OK to spray water on your air conditioner?

If you spray water on the condenser, it reduces the temperature of the outdoor air and thus increasing the efficiency of the AC. Something as simple as spraying water on the condenser can help the air conditioner perform better and last longer.

Can I use vinegar to clean AC coils?

Take your spray bottle, vinegar and water. Mix ½ water and ½ vinegar inside the bottle. Shake the solution well, and apply it to the evaporator coil and condenser coil. Vinegar will not harm the parts and is a very effective cleaner.
