If the indoor temperature is too high in spite of the air conditioning running full blast, it's time to get out your pressure washer and clean your air conditioner's ducts. The rotating arm of the duct cleaning attachment allows you to get a thorough cleaning, even catching corner areas that other methods can miss, but before cleaning the ducts with a pressure washer, check them for holes or leaks. Not only do they make your air conditioning run less efficiently, those leaks could allow pressure washer water to leak out of the duct system. Repair the leaky areas with a sealant, and begin the home duct cleaning once the sealant is dry. It's possible to save up to $300 a year after sealing the leaks and scouring the duct system with the pressure washer.
