Your air conditioner coils have to be cleaned regularly in order for them to function efficiently. Fortunately, you don’t have to enlist the help of your repairman which means cleaning them won’t have to cost you anything. You only need a fin comb, a vacuum cleaner and a screwdriver. It’s a good idea to wear gloves so you won’t hurt or dirty your hands. Once you’ve got all that covered, you’re all good to go.
