A good air conditioner is essential in keeping your Palm Beach Garden, FL, home cool and comfortable. However, over time, air conditioners may incur damage or other issues that cause the system to leak water. Here are some possible reasons your AC system is leaking water:
Your air conditioner needs refrigerant to maintain stable pressure throughout the system or else the evaporator coil could freeze over. When the ice melts, it causes the drain pan to flood and the entire AC unit to leak water. If you suspect your AC system has low refrigerant, you should contact a professional to inspect the leak.
Over time, filters can accumulate dirt and dust, blocking the air moving through the evaporator coil. If this occurs, the coil could freeze due to the restricted airflow and produce leakage from your AC unit. If you notice your filters are dirty, you should look into air conditioner maintenance services.
Clogged Drain Line
Debris, rust and dirt can create large clogs in your drain lines over time, and this causes water blockage and leaks. Depending on the severity, you may be able to unclog the drain line yourself. But contacting a trained professional who can use a vacuum to unblock the line can be more safe and effective.
Air conditioners are fundamental in regulating the temperature throughout your home, so you may feel concerned if the system starts to leak. The leak could be due to refrigerant, filter or drain line issues, and it’s best to call in a professional to fix the leak.
