1. A method for cleaning a first group of electrodes contained within an electro-kinetic air conditioner, wherein the first group of electrodes has at least one electrode with a cleaning device connected with the electrode, such that the cleaning device can travel along the length of the electrode, the method comprising:

  • (a) rotating the electro-kinetic air conditioner from an original position so that the cleaning device travels from an initial position along the electrode and frictionally removes contaminates from the outer surface of the electrode;

    (b) returning the electro-kinetic air conditioner to the original position, so that the cleaning device returns to the initial position; and

    (c) repeating steps (a) and (b) when the accumulation of contaminants on the electrode require subsequent cleaning to maintain the efficiency of the air conditioner.
