Window AC water slinger vs dry question
I know many here are against window air conditioners, in fact I am as well. When we are doing better financially I have every intention of having a few minisplits installed. I can't at this time now so I need to make due with what I've got.
I have two Sharp units (8K and 12Kbtu) and they do not have an optional drain plug. I just drilled a 7/16" hole in the 12K sharp preparing for summer as last year we kept getting sprayed by water from the fan as well as it makes me nervous as hell because its installed in our kitchen where of course there is often a lot of humidity and it runs mighty full by design.
I may modify our 8K one as well as it goes in our bedroom and my wife hates the noise it makes slinging the water at the condenser. Both units are pitched correctly per manufacturers instructions, I just don't like how they are working.
So the point of this post is, does anyone know how much of a reduction in efficiency I should expect by draining the water rather than cooling the condenser with it?
