    Drain Size

    Just wondering if it pays to increase the drain pipe from 3/4 inch to 1 inch on a new install to help lower the change of it getting plugged up with gunk?

    We clean the drain line every spring with our Spring AC maintenance...

    This, along with lots of other things... is why Spring maintenance is a good thing.

    Folks spend $hundreds and $hundreds on maintenance on their auto's...
    Why not take care of their AC units...

    GA's basic rules of home heating and AC upgrades:
    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!
    Choose your contractor wisely!
