When I had a up-to-date cooling system component installed, they also installed a float switch. The aged cooling system component did not have this switch plus I asked a lot of questions. The safety float switch fills with water, in the event of an emergency. The float switch is a failsafe precaution to keep our garage from flooding. The cooling system component drain line can become clogged plus backed up into the cooling system unit. The float switch is there to protect our home. An average cooling system component can remove 20 or 30 gallons of water each day. All of that water usually drains out the condensate line. If the drain line becomes clogged, water will backup plus flood the area. If the safety float switch is full, the cooling system component automatically shuts down. This can entirely save a lot of disfigure from occurring in your home. Some friends of mine had an cooling system problem last summer. They were gone all weekend plus came home to a flooded basement. Mud was blocking the drain line plus the water was backed up. They did not think there was a problem, until the basement was flooded with cooling system water. My friend spent a lot of money to soak up all the excess water, and she had to call a mold remediation team as well, just to be sure the carpet plus flooring was completely dry. A lot of basement items were ruined in the flooding. A safety float switch would have kept this disaster from occurring in the first locale.
