When I had a modern cooling system unit installed, they also installed a float switch. The outdated cooling system unit didn’t have this switch and I asked a lot of questions.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 unit drain line can become blocked and backed up into the cooling system unit. The float switch is there to protect our home. An average cooling system unit 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 blocked, water will back up and flood the area. If the safety float switch is full, the cooling system unit 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 warm season. They were gone all weekend and came modern home to a flooded basement. Mud was blocking the drain line and the water was backed up. They didn’t guess there was a problem, until the basement was flooded with cooling system water. My friend spent a lot of currency to soak up all the excess water, he had to call a mold remediation team as well, just to be sure the carpet and 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.
