Suction line causing rust

pawprint1July 20, 2012

The suction line inside my condenser gets wet and drips inside my condenser on hot humid days. Over the years it's causing the bottom of the coil to rust.

Why isn't the suction line ever insulated from the manufacturer so it doesn't drip? It is insulated from the outside of the compressor to the inside unit.

Is this normal?

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Probably less water than the occasional rain storm.

It is more likely to fail for other reasons long before it will rust out enough.
