What Is a Condensing Unit Disconnect Location?

When a condensing unit is in an active state (i.e.? when it is taking in a certain amount of water or fuel but is still at a certain temperature), it is called a “condensing unit disconnect location.” This is where a device called a condensing unit disconnects itself from the main tank. Once the condenser is disconnected, the evaporator coil (which takes in the fuel or water and converts it to vapor) will also be disconnected from the main tank. This allows the water or fuel to evaporate (or be vaporized) at a different location so that it does not end up in the condenser or evaporator coil. This can be a very important safety mechanism.

Most condensing units also have a switch that will automatically turn off the unit if the water in the tank goes above a certain temperature. If the unit is not in an active state (in the tank), then it may not be safe for a person to use the unit at all, or it may not be safe for someone to use the unit if the water in the tank is too high. Either way, it is important for a person to be able to find the condensing unit disconnect location when it is not in use.
