What is an AC condensate line ? This line is an exit route for moisture collected by the evaporator coil as air passes over it. This coil is triangle shaped, with a drip pan at the bottom. It is out of sight and behind the ductwork just above your furnace. Its job is to remove humidity from the air and change it to water. This water collects in the drain pan, and is emptied out the condensate line down and out through the floor drain.
Clients often ask me during the inspection, “So how is it looking?” and “Did the home pass the inspection?” The answer is there is no answer! The purpose of a home inspection is to identify potential expensive repairs or items needing replacement, and also to point out deficiencies from a safety standpoint that need immediate attention.
