Prevent Air Conditioner Water Damage
A home air conditioning system working at peak efficiency can collect 10 to 20 gallons of water daily, which should drain into a collection pan and then into the sewer system. However, if the drain becomes clogged and the unit produces more water than it can handle, the overflow of water can damage floors and carpeting—and cause stubborn deposits of mold.
Because most of the unit is typically hidden from view, water damage can cause hundreds of dollars worth of damage before you know it. Follow these steps to avoid costly water damage repair—and get more efficiency from your AC system.
- once a month, change the air filter and check the condensation line and the drains
- have a professional air conditioning repair service clean the condensation line once or twice a year
- consider installing a safety float switch, which will automatically shut down the power to an AC unit whenever condensation builds up, or a condensation pump to help ensure the free flow of excess water
