Heat pumps are entirely capable of both heating & cooling, in addition to cooling your section home, they also dehumidify it.
Warm air in your lake house holds a lot of moisture, & as the heat pump cools it, the moisture condenses into water.
Water is drained out of your lake house through the condensate line of your heat pump. Here are a few different reasons why you should regularly check your condensate line… Throughout the year, algae & other muck build up in the condensate pipe. Water drainage could be hindered if this obstructs the pipe, however an obstruction can be removed by cleaning out the condensate line with a lengthy, thin stiff-bristled brush. It is easier to control humidity when the water can freely flow through the condensate pipe outside of the household. A blocked condensate pipe or drain valve could cause water to pool in the heat pump’s drain pan. The motor, wiring, & coils of the air handler can be disfigured if too much water ends up building up, however your heat pump could easily stop laboring as a result. The condensate pipe should be able to drain out of the heat pump to prevent any disfigurement. Water drips continuously into the condensate pipe while in the warm season. Algae & biological growth thrive in the warm, dark, & wet environment. The growth may move into the drain pan & air handler, releasing spores that are entirely blown into the ducts. Your household indoor air quality will improve if you wipe & sanitize the condensate pipe on a regular basis.
