I used the A/C for the first time yesterday and opened up the panel to the evaporator coil to take a look at everything.

Above the Evaporator coil there is the airway to the air supply duct (returns cold air to the house, right?). Anyway, in the opening above the coil leading to the duct it looks like there is a filter there covering the airway, and it's covered in dust and gunk.

Can I shut down power to the unit and take a vacuum wand and clear out all of this dust/gunk? And is it common for that airway to get all dirty and dusty? I can't imagine that it's too great having all of that gunk there, since it's blowing air into the house.

Have a good day.

Went behind the furnance and poked around and that's part of the automatic humidifier attached behind and above the evaporator coil.

Discovered a new problem, I'll create a new thread.
