Please Advise: Portable A/C Not Leaking Water

Dear All:

I have a portable A/C (the one that you stick the vent out the window, but the entire unit is inside). The A/C has a water box that I would have to take out and empty. I used to do it about once per day over an 10 hour usage. However, for the past month, my A/C has not been leaking any water. The water box is completely dry. When I shake the system, I couldn't hear any water as well. The setting for this portable A/C is on "cool" (not dry). Is this normal? Should this be a cause for concern?

Please advise, thanks.

Samson

What is the relative humidity? If it is low then there is little or no water in the air to remove.

Thanks for the replies.

I do live in LA so it is typically dry here. But I've been in LA since I started using this A/C (over a year now), and I'd had to empty the water box consistently before a month ago. Now it is completely patched.

And yes, it does cool like it used to -- nothing has changed in regards to the air that's blowing out, which is why I'm confused.

Could a pipe be clogged up in my A/C? Does it sound like I should call an engineer to check my system? On one hand, I don't want my A/C to break down, but, on the other hand, I also don't want to waste money getting this serviced if it isn't necessary. Thanks -Samson
