Can my 3 in 1 air cooler also be used as a dehumidifier


an air cooler is a dehumidifier by definition
It cools the air around the evaporator giving you cool air and at the same time any humidity in the air is condensed into water and drained off
to understand air conditioner principles it goes something like this
we sweat and the more we sweat is because of the humidity in the air
if the air temp is 30 degrees c with a humidity of 75% then we feel that it is a very hot muggy day simply because the humidity stops the sweat from evaporating and allowing the skin to cool
Now it you take the humidity out of the air and at the same day temperature , you will actually feel cool because the sweat can evaporate and cool the skin
now you can understand that the best setting for air conditioning is 25 degrees c because if the setting is lower then the skin gets too cool because there is no humidity to restrict the evaporation of the sweat
modern spilt systems have a mode called comfort where the fan and the compressor work to maintain a constant level of humidity when sleeping and you don't get cold especially towards the morning

Tank sweats profusly


Sweating tank can cause moisture problems inside bathroom.
Sweating is caused when incoming water temperature is hotter or colder than air temperature inside bathroom.
You can verify this by not flushing tank for several hours and notice that sweating stops once water inside tank warms or cools to same temperature inside bathroom.
Problem can also be cause when there is not enough ventilation inside bathroom and water on tank does not evaporate.

To solve problem:
1) Increase bathroom ventilation and add dehumidifier or fan so condensation drys.
2) Insulate interior of tank. Empty water and let tank dry. Tape off moveable parts. Use can of spray foam and insulate inside of tank. Let foam dry and cut away excess foam.
3) Add tempering tank or staging tank inside room to pre-heat/cool water before it enters tank

My toilet is sweating extensively, leaving puddles on the floor. I am getting ready to install a foam insulation kit, but I don't know how to remove the float and stem.


Condensate can build up around the outside of a toilet bowl and that's often referred to as "sweating".
Condensate is caused when the air is very humid and an object (in this case, the toilet tank) is colder than the air.
Look up something called "dew point"; that describes the point at which the water that is suspended in the air will start to condense on cooler objects.
Dehumidifiers and refrigeration type air conditioners can help reduce condensate.
You can remove the float and stem by doing the following:
1. turn the water off and flush the toilet . Hold the handle for a while to make certain that you get as much water out as possible, then remove the rest of the water using a towel or whatever means available.
2. Look where the water supply line feeds into the tank. There should be a nut that holds the pipe to the tank. Remove the nut then carefully move the pipe a little out of the way... not much.
3. There should be ANOTHER nut that attaches the float assembly. Remove it and note where the rubber washers are. You may even want to replace the washers when you're done, to make certain that the tank doesn't leak.
4. When you remove that nut, the float assembly may stick a little, but gently work it "back and forth" a little and you should be successful.
Good luck

I find puddles of water in front of bowl


If you're finding puddles of water in front of the bowl ON THE FLOOR, then most likely your wax seal is leaking between the floor and the drain piping. You will have to disconnect toilet, remove water from toilet, remove toilet from floor. There is one other possibility, but not likely If it is just a small amout of water, it could be condensation. If your water source is cold (like well water in summer time) and it is hot and humid in your house sometimes toilet tanks sweat.

I have water running from under the passenger side interior floor board what could it be coming from or has any one else experienced it really flows when turning corners


It sounds like condensed water from the air conditioner. Just like a glass with ice in it sweats, the cold part of an air conditioner sweats. That water needs to go somewhere. There is a drain on the bottom of the ductwork that comes out under the car, often toward the passenger side.

If the drain gets plugged, the A/C still sweats, but the water builds up inside the ductwork.

You can often clear the drain by blowing some air up the drain from the outside. (Don't use too much pressure!)

My domectic roof top air con is getting condensation on the plastic cover inside the van


Hi; Is the drain for the condensate draining. You will have to check the top unit to see if water is present. You can also check the air filter to see if it needs to be cleaned. Please only use a household cleaner and hot water on the filter screen. Also what is the inside temp. when You notice the sweating. If Your in a very humid climit some times the unit will sweat until it can remove excessive moisture from the inside space. Also does the tstat seem to be working normally and holding temp. ...alpharome416
