How Do I Stop My Air Conditioner from Leaking Water?
If your central AC system is leaking, don’t panic! At Bill Bowers Air Conditioning & Heating, we understand how stressful it can be when your air conditioner begins to leak. Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue before calling a professional AC contractor.
How to Determine the Cause of the Leak
The first step is to determine why your central AC system is leaking. There are several potential causes, including a clogged condensate line, a blocked drain, a faulty condensate pump, or a malfunctioning evaporator coil. Once you’ve identified the cause of the leak, you can take the appropriate steps to fix it.
If you’re comfortable doing so and take all necessary safety precautions, you can attempt to troubleshoot the issue yourself. If you have a clogged condensate line, you can clean it out with a wet/dry vacuum. If the drain is blocked, you can use a wire hanger or other tool to help unclog it. If the condensate pump is faulty, you can replace it with a new one. Finally, if the evaporator coil is malfunctioning, you can check it for signs of damage or corrosion and repair or replace it as necessary.
However, if your initial troubleshooting attempts don’t stop the leak, then it’s time to call in a professional AC contractor.
