Tech Tip of the Week

A condensation pump needs routine maintenance done to work properly. The pump collects excess water created by your AC, heater, or humidifier. It then pumps it outside or to a nearby drain. Overtime if left uncleaned if will begin to build up scum on the bottom and can eventually clog the pump. A lot of the newer pumps are equipped with a safety switch, which means if the pump fails your system will stop working. If you do not have a safety switch the system will continue to run and you could have water damage. Cleaning condensate pumps is part of the normal maintenance routine here at Brandywine Valley.
