Benefits of Collecting Condensation from Home Air Conditioning Systems - Irving
By way of design, air conditioning units produce condensate water that must be removed to prevent water damage to the equipment and the building structure. Most often, the central air conditioner (AC) condensate drains off of the A-coil into a drip pan; then runs into a hose connected to the sewer system. Did you know that a central AC for an entire home can collect 5 to 20 gallons of condensate water per day, equating to more than 300 gallons per month in the summer. Depending on the location of the central AC, this water can be easily captured, stored and used. Students in this class will learn more about the benefits and how to collect water from the AC unit.
