Air Conditioner NOT Leaking Water to the Outside?

I have a pretty new window AC unit and have been running it all summer. The strange thing I've noticed is that its NOT leaking water to the outside like normal AC units. Every apt or house I walk by with an operating AC unit, I see water leaking/draining out. But not mine..which is strange.

I can hear water gurgling within the unit and occassional splashes so I know theres water moving around the unit...but I dont see any water coming out. I have my unit tilted towards the outside and have yet to see any water coming out.

Is this normal? I find it rather strange and wonder if I installed it wrong? Other than that, the unit works fine. I have a thru-wall metal sleeve in my room that my AC unit is in..not a window. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Some units are designed to dispose of water via evaporation. I would say that yours falls into this category. If you see any evidence to the contrary, like dripping or water stains, be sure to open up the plastic covering and do some quick investigation.

I did a little sleuthing and picked up a blurb that may prove to be of value:

"In regard to condensate drain pans not draining well. This is not a new concept. Many window units have a ring around the outer circumferance of the condenser fan, which is technically called the "Slinger Ring). In normal operation the bottom edge of the fan passes through the condensate pan and picks up water which is the slung into the condenser coil. The evaporation of that water off the condenser coil actually increases the efficiency of the machine.

You are correct that bacteria can breed in condensate pans and create a slimy biofilm which has be linked to legionairse disease. To prevent the formation of biofilm you can periodically pour a half ounce or so of ordinary household laundry bleach into the pan to sanitize it or while at the HVAC parts house you can get a small pack of "PAN TABS". Pan tabs are a slow release choline product in tablet form that is made specifically for HVAC condensate trays. They are very inexpensive and can be used in both window AC and Central AC evaporator units."
