My air conditioner is dripping water, what should I do?
If you notice your air conditioner dripping water, there are always a few main reasons that can be the reason why.
The most popular reason for a leaking air conditioner is a logged air filter.
When your air filter becomes overly clogged up with dirt and debris, it can make it impossible for air to respectfully circulate through your house, and if your air conditioner is finally working too hard to circulate air through a clogged up filter, your evaporator coils can freeze up. Many Heating and A/C professionals propose that you change your air filter every 30 to 60 afternoons, especially if you have pets. If your drain pan gets cracked, or full and overflowing, this can be another reason why your air conditioner started leaking. While it is possible to maintenance a cracked drain pan, it is best to completely upgrade it with a more modern 1. Your local Heating and A/C professional will be able to upgrade an air conditioner drain pan in less than a few minutes, with little to no disturbance to your home. A final reason why your air conditioner may be dripping is because of a jammed condensation drain line. Your condensation drain line can become jammed up with algae, fungi, and dirt, once every year or so, it is beneficial to clear the drain line with white vinegar. If you try using vinegar and your line is still jammed, it is best to contact your local Heating and A/C tech to come and vacuum out the blockage, then regular cleaning of your condensation drain lines is the best way to prevent buildup which can lead to blockage, which can lead to any Heating and A/C system needing upscale repair.
