Why is my AC Leaking?

Why is my AC Leaking?

It's a constant question our customers ask us but it's not something that should be occurring! First thing you want to do is shut your unit off to prevent further damage. Then you want to CALL PAUL and have an expert take a look at your system right away!

When an AC begins to leak it can be from a variety of different issues. Paul has a few reasons here why this issue is happening

1.Clogged Condensate Line - This seems to be the most common issue with AC leaks. If your drain line gets clogged with dirt, dust, or any other debris the water backs up into your home and you need to unclog it.

2. Dirty filter - You should be changing your filters on a regular basis. If you don't a dirty air filter can block the airflow over the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil will get too cold and begin to freeze and the excess water in the drain pain will cause a leak.

3. Change your drain pan - Many of the older AC units have the same drain pan from the installation and they begin to rust over time.

4. Broken Condensate Pump - The condensate pump will pump water outside from your AC unit. If the pump breaks, the water stops pumping and this will cause a leak.


If you notice any of these issues going on , Call Paul right away to solve it!
