I guess I'll be opening up the panels and get any debris or dust that
may have accumulated, but besides that, are there other procedures I
should perform before I cover up the central A/C until next summer?
Yes, it's already getting chilly here in Edmonton, Alberta. There's
even a frost warning out for overnight. So, I figure using the A/C
won't be necessary until next summer. Thanks.
A good rinsing with a solution of boraic acid, then muratic acid
cleans the coils very well along with a light belt sanding.
Dont thank me. I do this everyday. Thank someone like Stormy, DaNgER,
or one of the other baboons that squeezed in through the crack in the
For the ones Bubba listed, use a 1-1 ratio.
However, if you use Hydrochloric acid, just use it straight and rinse the
unit off 10 mins after application.
This is much easier since you don't have to mess around with measuring and
mixing the solution.
Wouldn't you know it, just as I was done with cleaning the A/C unit
with the recommended solutions, the weather turned warm and needed to
have the A/C come on again.
But I find that it's making some awful weird noise and it's vibrating
violently as well. Any idea? I've left a message with my A/C
technician, but in the meantime, if someone can suggest some of the
things I can look into, I'd appreciate it.
You know it is one thing to refuse to help a person with a problem or
suggest that he seek a professional to solve it, but to suggest advice
that will ruin his system is quite another. It is no wonder that people
are trying to repair their own units or determine what is wrong BEFORE
calling a HVAC person. You have made it very clear that some so called
"Professionals" are nothing more that insecure individuals who fear that
someone will find out just how few unique skills they really have.
If the HVAC trade were my field I would be ashamed of someone like you
being associated with the same trade. In fact, I would be ashamed of
you being associated with ANY trade.
To those in your trade (if you really have one) and are ashamed of
someone like you, no blanket criticism is intended. But for YOU, go
ahead and flame me with your limited vocabulary. You will only confirm
my opinion of you.
D'uh. Everybody knows to use a light coating of Pam cooking spray on the condensor fins to keep them from corroding.
Hope everyone likes my school year book picture from 1951.
