    Will non-acid coil cleaner damage coils if it is not completely rinsed off?

    Any coil cleaner will damage aluminum coil if not rinsed.
    De-Tints and you loose capacity of heat transfer, according to what I have read.
    But, I have used green evaporator cleaner and not rinsed and usually ok. If it were me I would read what is on the bottle of cleaner and follow instructions.
