Question about Heating & Cooling
I just got the new AC window unit and the first time I am using it, there is a lot of what I think is condensation on the outside of the unit and an unfamiliar odor is being emitted to the outside. Is this normal
Check what you think is condensation and see if it could be oil. Water will evaporate when you rub your fingers together but oil will not. On new units you will sometimes get a smell of baking paint for a short time. In Air Conditioning as the system is cooling it lowers the dew point and the moisture in the air will condense. This is a normal part of the function of an air conditioner. If it is oil that you find take it back to the place you bought it from. The system has a refrigerant leak.
