    Got a clog in my condensate drain line, close to the unit, on the second floor, but the only line draining out of the house is the one connected to the hot water heater. Certainly, the installer wouldn't have connected the A/C line into water heater line. Or, would he have connected the drain line somewhere else into the house's plumbing.

    Your primary drain should drain to your in house plumbing, secondary should drain to a drain pan which drain to the outside top of a window. No AC drains to outside near the ground.

    Most AC drains in my area drain outside to a trap usually about a foot off the ground. Many people collect the condensate and use it to water plants.
