      How to Address Air Conditioning Leaks

      Your air conditioner should be pumping out cool air, not water. If your unit is leaking water, it may be time to call in the professionals for a much-needed air conditioning repair. However, before you do, it’s important to understand the basics of how air conditioning units work and where the water could be coming from so you’ll know what to do the next time the problem arises.

      How To Address Air Conditioning Leaks

      Here are a few pointers to consider from our heating and cooling experts at Superior Air about dealing with leaky air conditioners.

      Air Conditioners and Water

      All air conditioning units work in pretty much the same way. The unit draws in air which is then cooled as it moves over coils of copper tubing filled with refrigerant. On hot, humid days, water vapor suspended in the air condenses on the coils and drips down to a drainage pan. Keeping this drainage pan clean and clear of any obstructions is an essential part of regular air conditioning maintenance. While it’s normal for water to come out of the evaporator coils, problems can occur when the system fails to adequately deal with it.

      Mold and Mildew

      The drain pan set underneath your cooling system makes an ideal environment for the growth and spread of mold and mildew. Many systems have a drain pump that continuously empties the pan and keeps it from overflowing. Problems with water leakage, therefore, can usually be traced to the draining mechanism of your air conditioning unit. Keep an eye out for telltale signs of mold and mildew, as these are often the first signals of a water drainage problem.

      Addressing Water Leakage

      According to the air conditioning installation experts at Superior Air, you can prevent these issues from happening in the first place by making sure that all water drainage pans, pumps and pipes are in good condition at all times. Sometimes, however, serious water-related problems can still occur. In these cases, it’s best to let the professionals diagnose the problem.
