I was set as well as ready to go for a Fourth of June barbecue as well as cookout our wife as well as I were hosting this year at our brand new house. The people I was with and I had already invited both of our families as well as at least a half a dozen friends as well as coworkers. The people I was with and I even encouraged everyone to bring dishes as well as do a quasi-potluck & the food I would be cooking on the grill. I had bought raw chicken, pork, as well as several beef steaks as well as stored them in our extra refrigerator that all of us have in our garage. On the day of the cookout, I was walking to that fridge when I saw a small pool of water on our garage floor. There was a wet patch of concrete about more than three feet by many feet that led back to the wall shared by our house. The concrete was damp but not completely soaked. I immediately worried that I had a pipe leak of some kind as well as abruptly looked inside the condo on the opposite side of the wall where the pool of water was, as well as discovered it was a closet in the master home office. The thing is, I have a plumbing diagram for our condo as well as I discovered that there are no pipes anywhere near the locale where I found the puddle of water. I went back into our garage as well as realized immediately where the water was coming from. Directly overhead is our a/c air handler as well as it appeared to be dripping condensation from the bottom panel onto our garage floor. I called our HVAC company to look at it the following day as well as they recommended that I install a minutes 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 constantly. Although if it is considerably sizzling outside—especially in the garage—and that sizzling air meets the cold metal surface of our air handler, preventing condensation from forming as well as dripping is an uphill battle. But with a minutes drain pan underneath, any extra moisture drips off into the pan as well as dries when the equipment is powered down.
