Centeral air conditioner

Why would lots of moisture be dripping from the bottom of the furnace duct and the duct work inside of the house? Is there a water over flow somewhere?

If cool air is moving through the duct work,(feels cool or cold) and the area outside the duct work is warmer/hot, then you will get condensation forming on the duct work. Wrapping the duct work with insulation should lessen, or eliminate that.

It is a two ton system. and without doing a heat load Calculation and not knowing the heat load It would not be anything but a guess. But if everything is working properly and the system is clean and with good duct work, than it should be big enough for the size of your house.

I have 2 of the MSZ-A09NA Mr. Slim model in my 400 sq. ft. cottage. In the summer time my cottage is always damp feeling and the ducts drip condensation. How do I prevent this dripping?

It sounds like you have too much air conditioner vs. conditioned space. This would cause dripping and short run times. Air conditioners are designed not only to cool the house but to pull the moisture out, if it is too big and cools the area too fast the outside of the ducts will begin to collect condensation like the outside of a cold glass of water.

My furnace isn't heating my house. I was wondering if this was because there is a vent from my cold air duct to the outside thus drawing to much cold air into the system. Should this vent be closed in...

If this vent is connected to the return air duct line back to your furnace I would close it off. The only reason that I can see for having a vent to the outside is if you need more combustion air supply.Thank you.

What is the purpose of the sailswitch

The sail switch is in the cold air return it is wired in with the humidastat when your furnace goes on the air movement pushs the sail down inside the duct work that makes a contact the lets the 24volts to the humidastat. If the humidastat calls for moisture it turns on the humidifier but only when the blower on the furnace is on So in short it detects air movement

Is it normal for a car to drip water on the ground after running the air conditioner?

Yes, The air conditioner evaporator core inside the vehicle is very cold when the a/c is operating and moisture will condense on the outside of it, especially on a humid day. This moisture then trickles down the sides of the core and collects in the plastic housing beneath the core where it then escapes through the evaporator housing drain tube and drips on the ground beneath the passenger side of the chassis. The more humidity in the air the more moisture you will see dripping onto the ground. If the little drip hose should ever get plugged up this water then will overflow the housing and drip on the passenger side carpet so if you ever have that problem you'll know what the cause is.

My window air is leaking on the inside of my house

usually because the drain hole/duct/tube, on the outside is blocked, or the aircon is mounted leaning Into the house, condesate that is supposed to drip into the outer casing and run out the hole is funneled over the lowest point of the casing, the house side.
check and unblock the drain,
and ensure the aircon is mounted tilted back.
