Condensate Traps and Overflow Switches

In Heating & Cooling 101, Video Guides by YounitsLeave a Comment

Let’s talk about using condensate traps and overflow switches for your air handler. Featured is the Easy Trap model EZT-210, one of the most popular sizes. There are a variety of sizes and applications for your unit. It serves a variety of functions which are important. The Easy Trap is tied into your air handler unit. The purpose is to remove the condensate away from the unit itself. The unit should be cleaned once per year, typically at the beginning of the cooling season. The clear plastic tube is a big advantage over traditional piping because you can see through it to see if there is a clog instead of having to cut through old piping. There is an opening in the top to be able to plunge it with the provided brush. At the opposite end we have an emergency shut off switch. Should your system ever become clogged when you’re not around, this will automatically shut off the air handler, so it stops the creation of condensate so you don’t have a leak or an overflow.
