PREVENT FLASH FLOODS
Other than cooling the air, the primary function of air conditioners is dehumidifying the air for creating a comfortable environment. The water let out after dehumidification is then drawn off. Considering this, if you happen to install the air conditioner in the attic the water draining could pose as a serious threat. If the drain clogs, there are heightened possibilities that the condensation will trickle from the air conditioner and start soaking the ceiling. Replacing or repairing the ceiling probably might cost an arm and a leg. You could even have to shell out much more, if you have a cathedral ceiling installed in your home.
CEILING SAVER KITS
The ceiling saver kit is a device that works with your existing system to prevent the emergency overflow pan from filling completely and leaking on to your ceiling. In the event that the device detects the overfilling of the pan, it will turn your ac unit off and prevent those expensive sheetrock and water damage repairs.
