The AC condensate drain line inside of your air conditioning unit faces an important job with Florida’s humid climate. Humidity creates tons of extra moisture in your air conditioner and, without proper AC maintenance, can lead to added strain on your AC drain line, and a system shut down or even a flood and water damage in your home. Always contact a qualified and licensed HVAC contractor like the experts at Jenergy Air to service your system.
