The outdoor a/c plan
Lately, our wife pointed out that the air quality in our lake apartment seemed to be poor. I am not truly attentive and don’t notice small details appreciate that. To me, air is air, or at least I thought. However, she was insisting on finding the root of the problem. After looking things up online, cleaning and dusting every surface, and venting with friends, our wife finally called a heating and cooling supplier to ask their thoughts. They asked if there was an outdoor component to the heating and cooling unit that might need to be cleaned, but sure enough, all of us had a component that coordinated with our heating and cooling system just outside of the garage, however lucky for me, our wife passed the task onto me. She asked me to scrub the outside component because she didn’t want to pay for the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair if it was something all of us could do on our own. I got some cleaning supplies together and put on some old clothes and made our way into the yard. Sure enough, the component was filthy. There was mud caked all over the outside surfaces, but debris built up inside any place that was visible to the outdoors. I pulled out everything from leaves to sticks. It took me a solid 2 hours to get the whole unit clean. I sprayed it down with the house, scrubbed it by hand, and used the broom to sweep things around and underneath it. Sure enough, our wife noticed an immediate difference in air quality, and even I couldn’t deny that the apartment just felt fresher and cleaner. Now I know, I will have to keep an eye on this outdoor component. In order to keep high air quality, I will have to make sure that it’s clean!
