Air Con cleaning with Einzatt

Hi,

Anyone use this on Civic?

I bought it to clean my A/C system only to find the can carries a warning that on some modern cars there are electronics in the ducts that can be damaged.

Kind of got me worried as whether or not to use it.

Hi,

That's an aerosol though.

Einzett is a liquid foam that you feed down the central air vent onto the condenser unit.

I have tried various AC sanitizer i suggest to buy an "Air Conditioner Evaporator Coil Cleaner" like this

and use it directly on the evaporator coil when you change the A/C filter once a year. A 500ml can cost less than a tenner and it would last a very long way (10 cars or more) and it is really effective.

Anyway I risked it and it seems fine.

For the record I've tried Wurth aerosols before and found them useless. Work for about a week and then it returns.

The idea of the foam is you actually cleanse the Air Con condenser where the bacteria / fungi are.

It's evaporator. Condenser is the hot part, usually under your front hood ;-)

Thanks. Knew it was one or the other.

Just wanted to report back - excellent result with the Einzett.

Smelt chemically for a week afterwards but it now smells normal again and no nasty niffs.

Just attempted to use Einzatt on my mini cooper, whichever way I fed the hose it never seemed to go in the right direction.

Decanted some of the aerosol and some of the product dripped out from behind the glove box [right hand drive]

Fed some into the circular vent on the top of the dash, fingers crossed - it seemed very liquid and not at all like the foam you see on the youtube videos
