I just had a HVAC Company install this A-Coil unit and the right side, copper lines over laps the drain pan, condensation drips off the copper coil lines on the floor. How can I fix this issue?

Have it insulated up and into the coil cavity as far as it can be.

The sad thing is under those lapping copper lines is only black tape

I just now noticed the circled bit. Sorry, I was talking about the low suction line, the biggest copper line coming down the left side which is supposed to be insulated. You can easily (but carefully) push those little circuit lines up and over to where they are over the drain pan. No insulation on those little circuit lines needed ever.

You don't want to damage as in bend them as in kink them and you want to be careful to not break them from their seals where they enter the evaporator. You can actully move that entire piston orifice around with those little lines.

No biggy, just be careful.

Thank You Carmon, foam tape would stop the condensation?

The bolt in the middle, grab it and gently push it in. Those little lines will follow. You can also push the little lines themselves but again, don't damage them.

BE GENTLE.

I am also going to re insulate the low suction line as well as the one that installed the unit used the old insulated foam and water is appearing on the black tape on that suction line. LoL the drain line he put in was a plastic flexi tube and wasn't even hooked up to the drain line coming up from the floor, I had to get a plumber to come correct that issue
