a/c

With another hot summer approaching, I have been told that cleaning the "years of dust, dirt, etc." which has accumulated on the condenser would increase the cooling efficiency of my a/c system. It was suggested that I spray EasyOff oven cleaner on the condenser, wait a bit and then wash it, to clean the junk off. But would that damage the condenser if it's made of aluminum? If so, what can you do to clean?

I would just hose it off. You could also hit it with compressed air if you need to.

go by the car wash, open hood and spray it down good. i can tell you that the ac on those cars at best is barely enough. i had a bunch of stuff done to mine last year compressor, dryer, etc. it never blowed below 45 degrees on the hottest of days. just enough really. the problem is that the condensors on those cars arent big enough to cool the freon.
