Re: Air Conditioner Smoke
The smoke you are seeing is the cold air turning the hot humid air into a cool mist. This may happen when you first run the a/c to cool the room. Once the room is cooled down you should not see the mist any more.

That's a cool mist, like a fog. It's not smoke and occurs when the outside humidity is extremely high. Be sure the air intake filter is clean and if it continues for a long time, raise the temperature setting of the AC a couple of degrees and allow it to run, until the mist clears. It harmless, so don't worry about it.
Fortunately, that's not smoke. It's a cool mist or fog, that is caused by high outside humidity and the coldness of the cooling coils. Generally, it's nothing to be concerned about. Just be sure that you keep the air intake filter clean and the the drain hole in the drain pan is not clogged.

This smoke is actually condensation formed by having a humid room meeting the cold dry air. This is not a problem and does not pose a threat. Similar to the effect when you open your fridge or more obvious your freezer. Just temperature and humidity differances causing this.
