Default No water draining from A/C

Hi guys, I have an 01 Accord coupe, and I've noticed that I don't seem to
be getting any condensate draining out after I've run the A/C. I gently
poked in the drain with a plastic cable ty-wrap and it seemed to be free of
any blockage, but I noticed there is some cold A/C coming out there. Is
this normal? Should I be getting some water?

The water that drains from an A/C unit is condensation that forms when humid
air goes through the cold coils and it drops the temperature of the air
below the dew point. Its basically the same thing that happens on the
outside of your glass of ice water on a hot humid day. You don't say where
you are, but in more arid regions, where the humidity level in the air is
low, you will get a lesser amount of condensation and it might not form
enough of it to make a noticeable stream out the drain. If your AC is
cooling normally and you have established that the drain passage is clear,
there is probably nothing wrong with it.

Yes - here in Arizona the dew point has been below the freezing point (dew
would appear as frost rather than as water) most of the time for the last
few months. Air conditioners are not condensing any water. That will change
in the next month or so....
