I use medium size/opening filters, not the el-cheapo fibreglass ones
that are almost totally open, but not the real fine particle types
either. I change them once a month if I remember to. They are always
dirty looking if you hold them up to the light. They keep loose dirt
from entering the blower and then maybe clogging the A-frame air-
conditioning condensor coils
I don't understand cleaning ductwork. If the ducts start out clean and
then gradually accumulate dirt, that dirt either stays put, or blows
out into the room. If they start out clean, and you have a filter, how
does the ductwork get dirty? And, if it is dirty, once the loose
dirt blows out, how does more loose dirt occur to get blown out. That
new loose dirt will get blown out whether the duct is clean or has a
build-up of dirt that isn't loose, so cleaning the ductwork is only
needed if it gets so bad that it impedes air-flow. What am I missing
besides enriching all the ductwork cleaning firms?
I think you may be referring to the "evaporator" which is the cold part
of the AC. The "condenser" is the hot part located outside of the house.
Your refrigerator has a condenser that is either a big wide spaced coil
on the back or a compact coil underneath with a fan.
The evaporator in the form of an "A coil" is what most home central AC
units have on top of a typical upflow furnace. I won't chastise you for
using the wrong terminology because there are many things that I have
little knowledge of myself, like taxidermy, never done any. Remember,
ignorance means you don't know but you can learn, stupid means no way.

Nothing. Once I had ducts cleaned as my bride was sneezing often,
thinking allergies we had the ducts cleaned.
The crew re-installed grills crooked, misaligned screws, scuffed wall
paint where the shop vac bumped corners. Never again.
Hell, I can do that much damage.
