The condenser seems to attract debris like a magnet attracts metal, especially when it’s too close to shrubs and other plants. You can pick out leaves and twigs with your hands. You may hose down mud, lint, and cobwebs, but be careful not to bend the fins or drench the electrical components.
To do the things mentioned above, you’ll have to open up your unit. If you see any bent fins, bluish-green corrosion, or any other suspicious signs, call a trusted Shreveport, LA air conditioning repair contractor like AccuTemp Cooling and Heating to come and take a look at your unit and make any necessary repairs. The last thing you want to happen is for your air conditioner to break down just as El Niño starts paying everyone a visit.
