Closing channels

I’ve noticed that two nodes I have channels with have been down for a while (>2 weeks).
If I opt to close these channels do all my sats automatically get refunded back to me?
If not, how do you get sats back from channels that are inactive?

After 2 weeks is more than recommended to close those channels. For sure is a dead node that cannot recover their funds. You should choose directly force close and not wait anymore.
Yes, the funds on your side will come back to your onchain wallet.

What about the remote balance coins?

This is a serious downside to LN.

Then help LN developers to implement faster anyprevout and eltoo.
