I had a company install an A/C evaporator unit on my existing heating system. A plugged drain caused the plastic pan inside the evaporator to overflow with water, which then ran out through the metal housing into the safety catch pan underneath. But the insulation inside the evaporator underneath the catch tray is soaking wet now.
There is no drain hole in the bottom panel, so water trapped with the insulation can only leave via evaporation. I am worried that the insulation will become moldy before it dries out, causing health issues. Currently there is no smell or any other problems.
In order to inspect/replace the insulation, the entire evaporator unit needs to be removed, which would take a considerable amount of time and effort.
Does the insulation need to be replaced or will it evaporate dry before it becomes moldy?
I would appreciate any help.
