What to Do with a Clogged Condensate Drain

June 22nd, 2020

Ductless air conditioners really are becoming more popular in our area. While that’s generally good news, since we love these systems and the fact that they’re perfect for many homeowners, they aren’t without their own set of problems. Just like any other air conditioning system, problems can be mitigated, but it’s becoming increasingly important for homeowners to be vigilant and up-to-date on all the knowledge about their home comfort systems.

So, today we’re focusing on a lesser-known part of the ductless air conditioning system, the condensate drain. All air conditioners have this component, but what makes the ductless system different is that the condensate drain can run behind the drywall, running from the wall-mounted air handlers to a condensate pan. As the air is cooled, moisture condenses from the air and must be deposited through a drain system. When these drains clog, you’ll find yourself flooded with problems and will be calling our team for help with your air conditioning in Lake City, FL.

Don’t worry, keep reading and we’ll get into detail about what’s required to fix this type of problem.
