Air conditioner comb for fins at the bottom of a home unit
The HOA I am in hired a bunch of misfits who do not know how to weed whip without bending the fins on the bottom of my home unit. I am looking for a comb to run down from top to bottom to straighten them out again. Obviously, they denied doing anything to it. Of course. The unit works perfectly because I just paid to have it serviced for the summer, but the Tech did not have the tool with him to straighten the fins when he came.
Look on your coil what size comb you want, so see how many fits you have in one inch. Select the item Grainger # 2YJ77 OR 2YJ76 .The packet came with six different combs, but be sure you buy the one will work for you. If your service technician does not have one, them hire other technician, this is a tool that we carry on the truck. The unit should be sit on a base, (four concrete blocks will work) not on the floor, do not weed around your unit, you will damage the coil, spray weed killer around the unit, kill the weed six inches around the unit. Also watch the refrigeration pipes, if they hit the cooper pipes or the insulation, if it's working fine then are good.
