Why is My Air Conditioning Unit Leaking Water?


Why is My Air Conditioning Unit Leaking Water?

A leaking air conditioning unit is one of the most common problems to happen to homeowners across the valley. What most people don’t understand, is that a leaky unit is an issue that could be easily fixed with preventive maintenance, something that the experts at AC companies Phoenix. provide!

Nonetheless, there are multiple reasons why your air conditioning unit has a leak. Take a look at the list below and see if one of these problems helps to diagnose your issue.

Faulty Duct Installation

This is one of the most common reasons for a leaky air conditioning unit. When the duct is improperly installed, the change in temperature (hot to cold or cold to hot) causes condensation within the ducts. This condensation then leads to water leaking through holes or cracks within the ducts.

Disconnected Drain Line

This issue is, again, due to a bad installation job. When PVC is not properly fitted or cemented to the unit, water from the unit does not properly drain out of the pipe, leading to excess water leaking either in your home or around the unit outside. This is an issue that can easily be fixed without having to call your air conditioning repair Phoenix. Just take a look at your unit’s drain pipe to see whether or not it is properly secured.

Dirty Air Conditioning Filters

When the filters in your home are dirty and clogged, air cannot properly flow from the unit. This causes a backup in your unit which then causes the unit to freeze. When the ice in the unit begins to melt, the excess water will drip out of the unit. Again, this is another quick fix: changing your air filters once every three months will allow your unit to flow properly throughout your home.
