Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Do all air conditioners and boilers use condensate pumps? Do I need one for my house?"
A. No, not all air conditioning units use condensate pumps. This type of pump is typically used with units installed in areas where the condensation cannot naturally drain from the air conditioner. For instance, some apartment buildings or office complexes might have an air conditioning unit installed between stories. You don't want the condensation draining out through the walls or floors and causing water damage, so a condensate pump and basin is used to collect that water and pump it to a more appropriate drainage point. If your air conditioning unit is installed on the ground, on your roof, or somewhere else where any condensation produced can drip off naturally, you don't need a condensate pump. However, if you are uncertain about where you air conditioner drains, we suggest you contact your local HVAC or plumbing professional to help you determine whether or not you need a condensate pump.
