    Wash the coil w/ a soapy cleaner, not foaming!

    Disable the indoor fan motor and allow the outdoor unit to run. The condensate will freeze and the expanding ice will scrub the fin surfaces as clean as new. Kidding , lol.

    Make sure that the return grilles are not obstructed or dirty. Also make sure that the filter type is not radically different than what was in there before. High efficiency pleated filters are great if the system is designed for them but if they are too small for the application they can cause problems like this. Try the lighter duty filter and change it more often.
