Cleaning Your Wall Unit AC: A Step by Step Guide
Before doing anything, be sure to first turn off your air conditioner unit.
Cleaning your wall unit air conditioner is really as simple as cleaning your car. Just a matter of wiping things down and clearing out any excess dust or debris. First, you will need to spray down the outside of the unit, as well as the filters, cover, and blower wheel with all-purpose cleaning spray. Take these out before attempting to clean them. Wipe all of those down with your damp cloth and then move onto the coils. You should insert a cleaning cover and then use your coil cleaner to wipe down the coils, rinse with water, and brush them out with your soft brush. Next, remove the cleaning cover and bring in your shop vac. Attach a hose to it and vacuum out any dust or debris that may still be in there.
After you have done all of this, be sure to wipe any damp or wet areas that remain with a clean cloth. Reinstall your filters, blower wheel, and anything else you may have taken out of the unit, and you are good to go! Be sure to test that your air conditioner is running properly.
