Everything that is anything about cooling your home comes down to having the outside condensing unit operating at peak performance. When it is over 100 degrees outside your condenser will have to be very clean and full of freon to keep up with the heat inside your home or office. When cleaning your air conditioning system it is important not to bend the air conditioning coil fins on the outside unit. Normally we use a water hose but if you have great water pressure the air conditioning coil fins tend to bend a little, also when they are bent the high water pressure will also bend them more. Air conditioning coils outside are normally cleaned once a year. When you have a cotton wood tree close to your air conditioning system at your home or office, their may be a need to clean it 3 or 4 time a year when the tree is blooming, just a common problem here in Richardson, TX.
To get your air conditioning coils very clean or if they are very dirty you will need to get some chemical designed to clean air conditioning systems at your home or office. Go to Home Depot or order some online. The proper chemical to clean air conditioning coils is call "Coil clean" in reference to the condenser or evaporator "coil". The proper way to clean your AC coil is to get the chemical sprayed on all of the vertical sides of the outside unit. The areas with the louvers or where you can see the coil fins is where you want to clean. Soak it in chemical and get your water hose in action left to right and up and down it takes about 20 minutes to clean an air conditioning condenser. Some AC units take a little longer some are just a little less but as long as your not bending them up to much they can not be washed to much, in other words take your time clean them well.
