It's spring...clean your radiators!

Not only does it improve airflow but buildup + moisture = rust.

It was a lot worse behind the condenser.

Not a fun chore, but it does need to be done. Did mine last spring, wonder how much has accumulated in there in 1 year.

How long had it been since you cleaned yours?

That was 2 years worth...but my daily commute doesn't see a lot of leaves or debris in the fall.
