Air Handler Sweating Causing a Leak into the Ceiling?

August 21, 2019

In a recent home check, I saw a spot on the ceiling that was highly suspect. I wondered, “Was the air handler sweating causing a leak into the ceiling?” The HVAC system (which is cold) is in the crawlspace (above the ceiling (which is hot) = condensation leaking into the ceiling. You can see our picture from the moisture meter.

The problem is, our client is 6,000 miles away. That’s why they trusted us to be their eyes and ears,  working with the vendor on remediation.

For stopping air handler sweating successfully, the first thing you have to do is to find out the correct source of the sweating- I mean the component due to which it is sweating. Also, you have to be convinced about the fact that somehow at the source, humid air is coming into contact with cold metal.
