Why Water Is Leaking from Your Air Conditioning System

Monday, June 12th, 2023

Do you know how your air conditioning in Campbell River, BC cools the air in your house? If you know a bit about HVAC, then you’ll probably answer that it’s because of the refrigerant inside the air conditioner.

This is generally correct. Now, what job does water play in the AC cooling the house? This might make you think for a second. You hear water dripping inside the air conditioner at times, and water can lower the temperature of air. But does water have anything to do with how an AC cools the air?

Which brings us to the question in the title: if an AC doesn’t use water to cool the air, why are you seeing water dripping out of the AC?

Monday, May 1st, 2023

We often recommend tankless water heaters to customers. These alternatives to the standard water heater that uses a tank have numerous advantages:

  • They consume less energy
  • They have longer service lives
  • They take up much less space
  • They provide unlimited hot water

Except … we want to talk about that last point a bit. It is a major selling point for tankless water heaters, but it can also give people the wrong impression. It’s perhaps better to say that a tankless water heater won’t run out of hot water. This might sound like the same as saying limitless, but not exactly. It’s a description that better explains how a water heater works.
