    use the LARGE wier brush looks like a shoe brush size but it has very stiff brissels, about 2-2.5 long, start at the bommom and pull up. works well once you get the brissels started.

    IF YOU THINK A GOOD HVAC COMPANY IS EXPENSIVE. THEN YOU SHOULD TRY A BAD ONE.

    I have the plastic 'razor' style with the changeable heads. It works pretty good so long as you dont try to straighten all the bent fins at once. Seems to work best if you only try to straighten half good and half bent fins when raking it.

    How well do those metal one size combs work? Seems like if you are one size too small on the plastic ones you'll flatten as you straighten, so I dont see how the metal ones could work on flimsy 20 fin/inch condensers without destroying them.
