Is your a/c system leaking water?

Leaks in your home can cause concern at any time, however once a leak begins it doesn’t take long for water damage to occur.

Leaks can damage floors, walls, ceilings, carpets, and even furniture in no time. Take action if your air conditioning system is leaking water, and check your evaporator coil if you see a puddle under your air conditioning system. A layer of ice and frost could be dripping water, however, it is unlikely to cause permanent damage to your component if you repair it right away; If your air conditioning system needs repair, turn it off, put a towel underneath it and schedule an appointment. One of the most common causes of A/C leaks is a clogged drain line. Your heating and A/C serviceman can use a wet/dry vacuum to remove dust, dirt, or mold from your drain line. Condensation pans can also leak, and your air conditioning system’s drip pan prevents moisture from leaking into your home. If the condensate drain becomes clogged, the shallow pan can overflow, and water spilled out of the pan will leak into your home. A common misconception is that A/C units use up refrigerant like cars, which is not true. Refrigerants do not always need to be topped off. Air conditioning system malfunctions can cause refrigerant leaks, which are usually indicated by hissing or bubbling noises. Your A/C will need to be repaired and the refrigerant upgraded if it leaks. Your air conditioning system will not work without the right amount of refrigerant, and your air conditioning system will not be able to cool your home, and the evaporator coil will be too cold. Ice forms inside your component when the evaporator coil reaches a certain temperature, and this ice can cause your A/C to leak water into your home.
