Good point, skippedover! Sounds like your a real believer in EAC's. Here is what I use for air cleaning and odor removal! http://www.air-purifiers-cleaners.co...r-purifier.htm

My wife always gives sound advice
99% sound… 1% advice
get a bottle of fantastic and spray them down realy good let sit for a few minutes and hose them off
after cleaning no mater what method take a tissue and wipe the piano wires off real carefuly. The resado with block or break down the iozaion field as the book will explain also
should be done at least bymonthly or they arent even a good filter imo
I use coil cleaner also and this works very good. Rinse good. I've also been told that Simple green works but have never tried it.
i use that scrubbing bubbles bathroom cleaner it does a good job most that still have them put in the dishwasher i still like the dynamic more !!
Soaking in DW detergent not enough?
Ok wait. I’ve had Honywell EAC since 2002. I clean it every 30 days. I used to clean them in the DW and the first few cleanings turned the white DW racks grey from the aluminum but after that I kept on using it.
In 2006 I got a new DW and switched to hand cleaning the coils in my double utility sink. I soak them in hot water, DW detergent and STPP, then pull them up and down so that the water moves through them, let them soak again, pull them up and down again, change the water let them soak to rinse. In the summer I then hose them down outside for a final rinse. In winter I can’t do the outside hose down. After washing and rinsing I let them sit to dry overnight before returning them to the unit so that the blower motor(vs blower in on position during the winter) will not pull any moisture across it.
So is using DW detergent enough—should I be using this simple green stuff? If so where do you get? What about wheel cleaner would that be better?
Coil cleaner..I bet a homeowner cannot get this stuff can we?
Is the car wash better than soaking in DW detergent? I guess I take them to the drive through stand there and wave the wand over them instead of the car..is that all there is to using the car wash? Will the force from the water bend or damage the coil or wires?
It doesn't really matter how you clean them as long as they are clean and damage free. Some ways of cleaning them are quicker than others. Since you are not paying someone to clean them your way is fine.
Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.
Thanks but my way takes several hours of soaking and rinsing ,although I am not standing there waiting, so I am open to quicker ways and any manual way that may be more effective
