    I have seen so many of these videos on-line saying to spray it from the outside at an angel. In all my years I have only cleaned the condenser coils from the inside out. Thanks for being real:-) It is not hard to do and if you do it in the beginning of the cooling season and about half way through the season, your a/c unit should be good to go. Good video and information.

    Thank you I was looking for this. I was also told low power 'VERY low power water can be used to push debris out of the blades. ?? High pressure hoses or air is BAD BAD bad.

    I just cleaned my condenser coil with weak soapy water and rinsed very well. The water pressure was medium. I cleaned it from inside out. My coil is not very dirty. Question: after that, the AC unit won’t start any more. I check the circuit breaker, replugged in the power switch, even reset my Nest thermostat. Nothing worked! It’s 100 outside today.

    If I don’t want to take apart the condenser can I just spray that stuff on and hose from outside? Mine is only 2 yo. New build from 2020 but out area is pretty dusty and allergies are kicking our asses

    I need to do this pretty soon. Moved into a new house about 8 months ago and now that it’s nearing summer I’ve noticed mine looks pretty bad. Thanks for the video
