Re: Humidity

An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep on the inside of the unit that it adds too much humidity to the inside air. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Also verify that the "vent" is closed, if this unit is equipped with said vent opening. An open vent panel can allow humid outside air inside as the unit is running. Hope this helps! ;)

I am finding that the plasma cool ACW600C is leaking a lot of water

air conditions work by removing the humidity from the room air
very humid air will cause a lot of condensation in the evaporator section especially if you have it set below 25 c
keep all doors and windows closed to prevent fresh air bringing in more humid air as that makes it hard for the ac to work efficiently

Only recently my portable heller air conditioner is oosing out buckets of water each night. does it mean it finished and needs replacement,

Portable air conditioners cool the air, and in so doing, dehumidify the air. The "buckets" of water are coming from the humid air in your environment, so you need to do things that will reduce humidity, of be prepared to empty the condensate receptacle fairly often.

Using a small room, closing doors and windows to the room you want cooled, avoiding cooking or heating water, reducing the frequency of people walking into/out of the room and limiting the number of people in the room will all help in reducing, and keeping low, the ambient humidity.

Why is a brand new in wall ac not dehumidifying room

could be to small for room or could be to big for room. It the unit is too big it will cool the room down to fast and shut off to soon, this will not remove the humidity. Try running the unit on a lower temperature the slower the fan the colder the coil which will remove more humidity from room also make sure the fresh air vent is closed and not bringing humidity from out side.

Emerson quiet kool wall air conditioner. Should vent be open to remove humidity?

No - opening the vent will allow unconditioned outside air into the space and add to the humidity load.

Think of it like your car's A/C - when you put the controls to "Max A/C" the system recycles just the air inside the car and doesn't use any outside air. When the control is set to normal A/C, some outside (fresh) air is brought in.

The same thing is true for a window A/C unit. Keeping the vent closed will help the unit de-humidify and cool the air more quickly.

Mitsubishi Through the Wall Unit Does Not Remove Humidity

You were told incorectly. From what you are describing the unit is oversized for your space.

All Air conditioners remove humidity. In fact the Air conditioner was invented by accedent by Mr carrier when he was trying to invent a machine to remove humidity. He discovered that by drawing air accross a cold coil the humidity drained off the coil. He also discovered that it was a mighty effective way to cool large quantities of air, and we then had "Carrier" air conditioning systems.

When a system is to large for the area it is to cool, it will cool the air in that small area so fast that the humidity starts to condense in the room before it can be pulled through the evaprator coil.

In this case, the solution would to be either replace the unit with a smaller one.
Increase the area to be cooled. (open doors to other rooms etc). or use the dehumidifier.

How many square foot is the space you are trying to cool?
What size is the AC unit? (in "tons")

Water not draining out the back

Humidity is where the water comes from. If humidity is low, very little if any, water.
