I was set plus ready to go for a Fourth of August barbecue plus cookout my fiance plus I were hosting this year at our brand current house. We had already invited both of our families plus at least a half a dozen friends plus coworkers. We even encouraged most people to bring dishes plus do a quasi-potluck as well as the food I would be cooking on the grill. I had bought raw chicken, pork, plus numerous beef steaks plus stored them in our extra refrigerator that we have in our garage. On the afternoon of the cookout, I was walking to that fridge when I saw a small pool of water on my garage floor. There was a wet patch of concrete about numerous feet by multiple feet that led back to the wall shared by my house. The concrete was damp however not completely soaked. I instantly distraught that I had a pipe leak of some kind plus suddenly looked inside the apartment on the opposite side of the wall where the pool of water was, plus discovered it was a closet in the master home office. The thing is, I have a plumbing diagram for our apartment plus I discovered that there are no pipes someplace near the venue where I found the puddle of water. I went back into my garage plus realized instantly where the water was coming from. Directly overhead is my cooling system air handler plus it appeared to be dripping condensation from the bottom panel onto my garage floor. I called my Heating plus A/C supplier to look at it the following day plus they suggested that I install a fifthary or auxiliary drip pan—it supplements the existing drip pan inside the air handler where most of the water is pumped out when the equipment is running respectfully. Although if it is considerably hot outside—especially in the garage—and that hot air meets the cold metal surface of my air handler, preventing condensation from forming plus dripping is an uphill battle. But with a fifthary drain pan underneath, any extra moisture drips off into the pan plus dries when the equipment is powered down.
