If you’ve ever had an air conditioner leak you know that it is not only annoying, but it can also cause a lot of damage to your home. Something as small as this can lead to a water damage problem that affects your whole home. So how do we prevent this from happening? By making ourselves more educated about what to look for and do in the case of an air conditioner leak.
Main Causes of Air Conditioner Leak
Clogged Drain Line
Having a drain line that is clogged will inevitably cause your drain pan to overflow. This is one of the most likely causes of your air conditioner leaking. If you discover that this is not the cause of your leak it could be something much more complicated.
Malfunctioning Condensate Pump
If your condensate pump isn’t working properly or is overly dirty, it could be causing your AC unit to leak into your home and cause the drain pipe to disconnect. Once it is off of the unit it will leak condensate into your home. This issue can be caused by a buildup of mold, which you will want to check for as well.
Broken Drain Line
A drain line that does not fit correctly or is broken will cause leakage to spill from the air conditioner all over your home. The location of the leak depends on which drain pipe has been broken or doesn’t fit correctly. Look for leakage around the unit in areas such as flooring and ceilings.
