Works in theory! Practice? That's something else
|The guy we bought the house off of was a fireman, and with the house came a 20' extension ladder. This is the most amazing ladder, it's not that heavy, super sturdy, has reversible feet with spikes to dig into dirt or flat feet for hard flat surfaces. It's fiberglass/aluminum. I'm pretty sure they left it because it was locked to the stairs and the lock had rusted (needed to cut if off).|
Used it yesterday to inject foam in the attic vent holes. Today I'll cut off the bits of foam off that flowed out of the holes. Also sprayed the mold killer in the attic yesterday (fun times!).
My brother-in-law arrived yesterday for Thanksgiving (which is today for us, he has to work on Thanksgiving and is leaving on Tuesday) and helped out. Felt bad as he wanted to do more and I was doing the grungy stuff. But I figured out how to make it up to him. I'm going to let him clean the evaporator coils. I've been saving this as it's a bit of a contortionist act to get them from underneath. Need a board or something so he doesn't kill a vertebrae on the lip of the air intake (something like this).
They're not that bad, I figure a light brushing to get the dust out from the underside, then spray coil cleaner from the top, use a sprayer to rinse off, then the cleaner from the bottom and another spray from the top. What could go wrong?
We'll use a shop vacc to suck up the water/chemicals that spill over the drain pan. Probably need to clean the drain line too, yeah... perhaps I'll start there .
