One of the most common issues experienced by many with their air conditioning unit is water leaking into the home.It starts off as a small issue that can be easily resolved but will certainly lead to major issues if unattended to for a long time. There are a couple issues that could cause the ac unit to leak water but by far the most common reason is a clogged drain line. These lines that expel the water from the system are prone to algae, growth and dirt build ups that can restrict the drains to the point where no water can freely leave the system. In the event of a clog your unit will start leak water inside the home and if not resolved quickly can and will lead to severe issues in the home and may even cause water damage leading to costly repairs. Another potential issue that could cause the unit to leak water is low Freon in the system. When an air conditioning unit is running on low refrigerant it will eventually lead to unit freezing up into a solid block of ice. A frozen over unit, aside from the fact that it clearly will not function properly, will also cause excessive water leaking as the unit thaws out.
Preventative Maintenance Can Prevent AC From Leaking Water
Of course there are a few things that can be done to avoid this situation including regular maintenance of the unit or even adding an emergency float switch to protect your home. Another and more cumbersome moisture problem can stem from the duct work in the home. Condensation in the duct work comes from a huge temperature difference between the inside and outside of the duct work. Extreme temperature ranges will cause moisture and humidity to condensate in and around the duct system that can again lead to water damages, duct damages or even necessitate a remediation. The best solution for this problem would be to insulate duct system. Beware that small leak because we all know small problems can escalate into much bigger issues that could have been easily resolved.
