Is your air conditioning leaking

An immense part of your air conditioner’s task is to take out moisture from the air through a series of coils and hoses. The less humid the air, the cooler you will be inside of your home. The dripping of water outside your home can be a reassuring sight to see but you don’t want your a/c dripping inside of your home. There are some things you can do to repair a leak from your a/c yourself. Your a/c 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 but make sure you don’t damage your component by drilling any holes into it. Make sure the framework around the component 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 a/c is running. If you see ice, you will need to get a test run on it. Lower outside temperatures can cause a water leak if the a/c is running. When temperatures are cooler outside or will become cooler at evening time, make sure to turn off the component to prevent water dripping from your unit inside.Check the coil to see if it is dirty. You may be able to clean the coil with soap and water. If it is too dirty, it will need to be replaced. If the component needs to be taken apart to clean, a cooling business can help you. Trying these steps to repair a leak in your a/c before calling a professional will help you in the long run and save you money.
