Question condensate from airconditioner

Can anybody explain me why there is condensate from an aircondioners? If there is more condensate from any aircondioner does that mean that it is not functioning efficiently? In my home I have two aircondioners of the same capacity. Condensate from one of them is much more compared to another. Why is it so, when both of them are of same capacity.

a simple explanation is that the higher the air temperature is the greater the amount of water it can hold, as the air passes over the coil it is cooled and can no longer hold the amount of water it to your question about the 2 a/c... there are many factors that can affect proformance... a dirty air filter will impede air flow, dirty coils ( condensor and evaporator) in addition to reducing performance willl cause the unit to work longer trying to satisfy the thermostat, draw more electricity and cause premature failure... a low refrigerant charge and/or dirty filter or coil will cause it to ice up. most people dont understand how to size equipment. the size of the room could be a factor, are the 2 a/c also the same brand and model? a unit should be big enough to cycle on and off....bottom line is, a clean machine is a happy machine.... hope this helps.
