What to do when your air conditioner leaks

A huge responsibility of your cooling system’s job is to remove moisture from the air through a series of coils and hoses. The less humid the air, the cooler you will believe inside of your home. You don’t want to see water dripping into your home from your unit, only outside from the unit.There are some things you can do to maintain a leak from your cooling system yourself. Your cooling system should be installed so it leans slightly downward toward the outside to encourage water to flow outward. Make sure the drain hole isn’t plugged, and if it’s plugged, unblock it. With that being said, don’t destroy your unit by drilling any holes into it in order to unplug anything. Make sure the framework around the unit is sealed. This will prevent any hot moist outside air mixing with the cool inside air creating condensation. Look for ice on the coils when the cooling system is running. If you see ice, you will need to get it looked at and replaced by a professional. Lower outside temperatures can cause a water leak if the air conditioning is running, so make sure to turn off the unit in order to prevent water coming inside from your unit. Check the coil to see if it is dirty. You may be able to wash the coil with soap and water. If it is too dirty, it will need to be replaced with a new coil. If the unit needs to be taken apart to clean, a cooling company can help you. Trying these steps to fix a leak in your cooling system before calling a professional will help you in the long run and keep more money in your pocket.
