    Question Condensation from Central Air Conditioner?

    Is normal to have condensation from your Central Air Conditioner? The reason I ask is on furnace we have this pump that in the winter it turns on every so often and draws water from the furnace, its doing the same thing when the A/C is running? Not constantly but every so often? Is this normal?

    Yes

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    Yes. Because your A/C removes moisture from the air as it cools it.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?
