What Is Condensation?

How many of us have went out of our way to shop for a glass, tumbler, or cup that will not “sweat”. There is nothing I dislike more than grabbing a cup with water droplets! These water droplets/sweat are also known as condensation.

Condensation can be in many more places than just our favorite tumbler. One major place of concern of condensation is in the HVAC System.

Condensation occurs when water vapor in the air comes into contact with something cool. Molecules slow down and get closer together & the gaseous water vapors turn back into liquid water drops (condensation). Seems kind of harmless on our cups but in an HVAC System this can cause so much damage and cost a great deal of money.

Years ago, Lynn Burkhart- President of CRT, visited a very prestigious resort in Florida. An esteemed guest had a not-so-pleasant experience in the resort.  There was a leak on the floor above, this leak damaged several expensive belongings of said guest. Can you imagine the frustration of the guest and embarrassment of the resort?


Do you know how this leak occurred? That’s right. Condensation from the HVAC’s drain pans had overflowed and leaked into the room, from the ceiling. Yikes! There is never a good reason for water to emit from the AC Unit. That is a true sign that the unit needs some TLC (Tender Loving Care). Whether it’s maintenance, repairing, or replacing. 

PM (Preventative Maintenance) is important to the health of your HVAC system. A checkup once or twice a year will help to detect & prevent an issue before it occurs. 

You can also be proactive by providing a time-released drain pan treatment PanGuard (Certified Green) or Algae Guard (EPA Registered) to keep your drain clean & free from over flows.

We’d love to hear any condensation stories you have. Please give us a call, comment, or simply shoot us an email. We look forward to chatting with you.

Whats in a name? That which we call drip pan treatment.

Much like the famous Shakespeare love story of Romeo and Juliet. The story of the two star-crossed lovers are nothing like the love you may possibly have for Algae Guard – drip pan treatment. There is no struggle or tragedy when it comes to our time released drip pan treatment- Algae Guard.

However, there may be a struggle if you are using tablets for your drip pan instead of a time released product such as Algae Guard. Tablets will actually help to deteriorate your drip pan. That is a tragedy!

You don’t want some tragic love story between your drip pans and the products you use, do you? You want the two things to compliment each other, right?
Look no further. Here is a bit of info about Algae Guard.

Algae Guard is a time-released drip pan treatment that keeps the pan clean & free from overflows. Time-released is a process that only allows the ingredients to be released as water flows through the product. Algae Guard is EPA registered and contains a biocide to be effective against mold, mildew, algae, and fungus.
