It’s July 17, it’s 96°F today, and the forecast is calling for almost 100°F next week. We’re not interested in ridges and 200 mb jets, we want to stay cool. So air conditioner maintenance is on the schedule for today. The Arctic King unit shown here was new in July 2014 and hadn’t been serviced yet. Look how dirty they get after one year! The LG unit belongs to a friend. It was in worse condition and hadn’t been serviced since 2011. It was working okay, but was leaking out the front due to the condensation drain being blocked by junk (filter not cleaned often enough).

There are radiator fin cleaners you can use for this kind of job. I didn’t have any of this cleaner on hand, so I went with just basic water and a little detergent (not filmed) this time around.
