How To

central air conditioning care When an air conditioner cools the temperature of the air, water condenses out of the air (similar to the way water condenses on the outside of a cold drinking glass on a hot day). Most central air conditioning units have a condensate drain to collect this water. This is typically located on the side of the inside fan unit.

This condensation system and drain should be inspected to make sure there are no obstructions, and that the hoses all fit properly.
