It is the humidity from the air passing through the cooling coil that has condensed on the coil. By drainig it out the humidity inside the room is reduced and you feel cooler.

When you cool hot air, water condenses out of it. This water should be piped to the outside of the air conditioner unit and drained away outside. It is possible that the drain pipe is blocked.

When air is cooled the water in it comes out (like mist forming on the outside of a class filled with cold coke) and this happens in the air conditioner. Normally the dripping water is drained way to the outside (or a drain) by a pipe. If the pipe gets blocked the water will overflow and the conditioner will leak water - get it serviced.

Your air conditioner may be faulty if it is not dripping water.

That is condensation and it is normal for water to come out of an air conditioner in the back of it.

The A/C extracts water from the air.

The air conditioner condenses water from the air. If the air conditioner is not draining correctly this water will spray though the system. Water and moisture are needed to support mould growth. You need to clean and repair your air conditioner drain system.

A humidifer can only add water to the air in a room. An air conditioner can do a lot more than that, it can: * chill or cool the air * remove water (de-humidify) the air * add water (humidify) the air.

That is the drain for the normal condensation from the air conditioner.That is the drain for the normal condensation from the air conditioner.

This is water that has condensed out of the room air on the evaporator coils of the air conditioner, and it is completely normal. If the humidity is high, one will see more water condensing and dripping from the air conditioner than when the room air is dry.

Water dripping on the front of a portable air conditioner could mean that the air filter needs to be changed. Your evaporator coil may also be dirty.

air conditioner condensation drips

The same gasses that comprise regular air: nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, and trace amounts of others.

The word, 'air conditioner' is a noun. The definition of air conditioner is a machine that controls the humidity and temperature of the air.

This is because condensation takes place after the compressor has compress the air in it.

No, you can not put ice into a portable air conditioner. I think you are actually referring to a portable air cooler, in which case, you can put ice into the water chamber.

When you are running your air conditioner and it stops then the air conditioner is froze up. You have to cut it off for a while, and let it warm up. You have to turn the thermometer between 70-75 to keep it from freezing up.

You mix stabilizer powder and water

Warmer air is capable of "absorbing" more water. When an air conditioner cools the air, some of that water condenses out, not only drying the air, but also leaving quite a bit of water on the coils of the air conditioner. Air conditioners not only cool the air, they also remove a lot of the humidity that makes the air feel "muggy". The simple fact is, ALL vehicles can drip water when the air conditioner is on, depending on the relative humidity of your region on a specific day. If your vehicle is only leaking water, it's just condensate, and the air conditioner is designed to properly deal with the condition. Check the liquid that's leaking... if it's not colored (anti freeze color) and it's not oil... then it's condensate, a natural condition for a normally functioning air conditioner.

The inside of the air conditioner condenser can be cleaned by removing the hoses and running water through the condenser. Run water through the condenser until the water exiting the condenser is clear.

An air conditioner cools or heats the air entering your home.

If your air conditioner blows air but it's not cold air then you probably need freon in your air conditioner

There was a modern air conditioner that was invented in 1902. This air conditioner was invented by Willis Haviland Carrier.

A room air conditioner will being putting out a haze if the air contains high levels of humidity. The mixture of cold and warm air will produce visible water vapor.
