Cottonwood Trees and Air Conditioners Don’t Play Nice Together
When the cottonwood trees lose their seeds and the air conditioner happens to be running, the cottonwood seeds get sucked into the air conditioner coils. It’s important to keep the unit free of these cottonwood seeds. Turn the unit off for a little while and give it a much needed rest. While it’s resting, take a moment to hose down the condenser and wash away the cottonwood seeds. Too many cottonwood seeds on the unit forces it to work harder due to lack of air flow while also preventing the unit from operating efficiently.
