Make Sure You Clean Your Window Air Conditioner Before Warm Weather Hits - Lifehacker.com
Spring has officially sprung, and while many of us are still in the throes of winter weather, others are starting to prep for warmer weather. If you have a window air conditioner, that means take a little time to get it clean and running well.
I have a window air conditioner in my office and when Fall rolls around, I usually just cover it up on the outside and forget about it until I need it again. Maybe you do the same, or maybe you live in a colder area and need to take it out of the window and store it for the Winter. Either way, taking the time to clean the unit will make it last longer, run more efficiently, and smell better.
YouTube user MrJustDIY shows us how to pop the cover off and clean the filter, coils, and fins. Sure, it's a little bit of work. But it beats dealing with musty, moldy air and having to run the unit all the time just to keep things cool.
