I did not realize how much pressure was inside of the small pressure washer, until I accidentally hit the a/c with the spray.
It only took a minute, and the fins on the a/c were completely destroyed, however you can entirely see the line from the pressure washer wand, because all of the fins are bent in the same direction.
I was doing my best to be careful when I was pressure washing around the a/c. I wanted to get all of the dirt, leaves, and yard debris. All of us had a major storm over the weekend, and a lot of yard turf and dirt was blown into the patio part where the a/c is affixed. I was cleaning under the air handler, when my foot slipped in the water. The wand went up for just a minute, and I destroyed half of the a/c fins on the left side. I thought about trying to bend them back into place, although I doubt that has a absolutely great idea. Our next tune-up is tied up in May, and then I’ll have the heating and cooling professional look at the problem. That’s still a month away, although I guess we’ll be okay until then. I easily hope it’s not a major issue, but it entirely looks awfully bad. I know the fins allow a lot of airflow to the interior components, and most of them are still intact. Even with the destruction to the left side, I guess that our a/c will still work completely fine. I guess we’ll find out in May.
