Is Your Air Conditioning Unit Leaking Water?
Have you had issues with your AC unit leaking water? If so, there are many reasons why this could be happening. No matter what the issue may be, you should always call an AC repair expert to troubleshoot the problem and make the necessary repairs as well. Knowing some of the main reasons why this may be happening can help to bring you some knowledge regarding the issue.
Clogged Condensate Drain
You may have a clogged condensate drain. The drain is needed to get the water out of your unit. If it becomes dirty or rusty, it could become clogged. Our AC repair experts can clean it out for you if you are in Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, or Panama City.
AC Unit Temperature Too Cold
If the temperature outside is too cold and you are trying to cool your home, the coils could get icy. This can cause your AC unit to start leaking. To stop this issue, you shouldn’t turn your AC on if the outdoor temperature is under 60 degrees.
Disconnected Drain Line
One common issue is to have a drain line become loosened with time. If it is too loose, it can disconnect and cause leaking of the refrigerant. If this happens, be sure to call the professionals at Peaden and we will get out to fix the issue for you.
Broken Condensate Pump
A broken condensate pump can cause excess water to stay in the unit, instead of flowing to the condenser pan. When this happens, the pan will overflow and start leaking. You can contact Peaden experts and we will fix this issue for you.
Low Refrigerant Levels
If your refrigerant levels are low, this can cause the coils in your AC unit to freeze up. This is another common reason for leakage from the AC unit.
Dirty Air Filter
If your air filter is dirty, there could be a restriction of airflow and your coils won’t get the proper ventilation. This can lead to the coils getting colder than they should be and freezing up. When the ice melts, moisture drips off the coils, and overflows the drip pan. Eventually this is going to leak.
All AC units will have some condensation at times. However, excess water that leaks from your AC unit, is not a good thing. You shouldn’t ignore it. You can call Peaden AC repair experts to fix any of these issues for you. We can make sure the problems are properly assessed, offer affordable rates, and have our experienced technicians make the needed repairs. Many people want or try to handle these issues on their own. However, in many situations, bigger problems arise from doing this. Hiring a professional AC repair expert is always the best option. Make the call to Peaden today.
