When a portable conditioner is active, water accumulates as a result of condensation as it cools down. It is then stored in the water storage. Not attending to this will lead to the accumulation of stains and growth e.g. mold which will damage this appliance in the long run. To avoid this, you should ensure that you drain the water storage of a portable air conditioner after 7-9 hours on average.
How To Empty A Portable Air Conditioner
Draining a portable air conditioner is very simple. You should not worry about time wastage because you only need to follow the two steps below to drain your portable air conditioner:
- Place a container below the drainage outlet of your portable air conditioner. This is where the water drained will be collected.
- Remove the plug covering the drainage outlet. This is what holds the water from flowing out of a portable ac unit and causing a mess without your knowledge.
- The next thing you will do is just let the water flow into the container. You will wait until the water stops flowing. This will mean that the water has been drained completely. You can connect a hose to the drainage outlet as an alternative if you have no containers.
- Return the plug to the drainage. Ensure it’s installed properly so that there is no leakage later on.
