In Response To: Air conditioner (Ian Gompertz)

Ian,

The condensation you described is normal. Air conditioning (refrigeration) is technically the removal of heat. The larger line that is condensating is the return line from the inside unit that is carrying heat from the inside of the house.

It is still much colder than outdoors and almost always below the dewpoint. One thing that would help is to insulate that line from the house to the outdoor unit. (that should have been done by the installer..) The easiest way would be to use rolled foam that has one sticky side and one foam side. turn of the unit and let the line dry. Put a nice tight wrap (single or even double layer) around the return line and it should prevent most if not all of the condensation.
