Re: Musty Air Conditioner Odor



The must odor is coming from the cooling coil caused by the buildup of mold mildew, dust and dirt embedded into the coil. That spray stuff just temperoralrily masks the problem. A true no rinse coil cleaner is the only true and correct method of correcting the problem. On the average there is about 3/4 of a cup of junk on the coil bad for the health and one of the biggest problems in the industry.

Fresh smelling A/C: results guaranteed
Ingredients:
    1 pint of common ordinary rubbing alcohol     3' long 3/8" copper tubing with a short "J" bend at 1 end     1 small funnel
connect the "J" end of the copper tubing to the air conditioner condensate drain hose under the vehicle (the thing that drips water). Stick the long end of the tubing up through the engine compartment so you can reach it from above. The copper tubing must be long enough to extend above the center of the dash. Now pour the rubbing alcohol into the upper end of the tubing using the funnel. Continue adding more alcohol until it starts to spill over onto the floorboard of the car or truck. Don't worry, the alcohol will evaporate and won't harm the carpet. This will backflush the system and kill the mold & mildew spores. Now disconnect the copper tubing. If desired you can collect the alcohol in a cake or pie tin as it drains back out and reuse it again.
A/C now all nice and fresh again, guaranteed.
Now, to keep it nice and fresh, switch your A/C over to max heat about 1/2 block before stopping for the day (every day). This will dry out the system and prevent the mold and mildew from ever forming.
