What Is a Condensate Drain Line and
Why Is It Important to Your AC?

The condensate drain line is a pipe that runs through a home's air conditioning system and leads to the outside. Condensate lines are typically made of PVC pipe or metal, and they act as a funnel for the humidity and condensation developed by air conditioner evaporator coils as the systems run.

During the warmer seasons of the year, it is imperative to have a properly functioning air conditioning system — especially in areas where the summer climate is extreme. When the weather heats up, air conditioning systems work hard to circulate cool air into homes. During the process of circulation, hot air releases humidity. The condensate drain line helps by releasing the built-up moisture and keeping it away from the unit.

The end of the drain line can be seen outside of most standard air conditioner units. The excess water drips out the end of the drain as the system runs and moisture builds up. The condensate drain line is essential to an effective air conditioning unit because it prevents moisture from building up and causing damage to the ductwork and insulation.

It is also important to regularly clean the drain line during the hot months to prevent clogs. Clogged drain lines can lead to poor air quality inside the home and can increase the risk of mold and mildew growth and a rise in humidity.
