This picture came up on Facebook recently. I immediately knew why my friend’s guest bedroom ceiling looked like this. Do you?
Because AC units make air that is cooler than surrounding air, there is condensation. This goes into a tube and is pumped out. When this works, all is well. But mechanical pumps fail. Tubes get clogged. Bad things happen.
This won’t matter much if the HVAC unit is in the basement; if it leaks, it will leak onto a basement floor. But, when the HVAC unit is in the attic, it leaks through the guest room ceiling. Insurance companies and homeowners, alike, are unhappy.
The guest room ceiling is saved!
