Is Your AC’s Condensate Drain Clogged?

Monday, December 14th, 2020

Air conditioners deal with moisture in the air as well as the heat. Think about it, the more humid the air is in your home, the easier it is for heat to get stuck and make you uncomfortable. As your air conditioner draws in air and cools it, it condenses the moisture from the air making your home feel dryer and cooler. However, where does that moisture go?

It should go into the condensate drain and get vented outside. If your air conditioning in Orlando, FL isn’t working properly and you’re noticing that there are humidity problems in your home, it could signal that something is wrong with the condensate drain of your system. Humidity issues, mold, and the malfunction of your air conditioner are all signs that your condensate drain is clogged and you’re suffering from an issue. Don’t worry, keep reading and give us a call if you think your system is dealing with this kind of problem.
