How's Your A/C Running?

Does your ceiling have water stains and can't figure out why? The roof doesn't leak and it hasn't rained, what's the deal? Why do you still have a leak from your ceiling? An unnoticed cause to ceiling leaks may actually come from your A/C unit. These types of leaks can be frustrating, messy, and cause significant damage.

The Affected A/C Parts:

  • Evaporator Coil
  • Drain Pan
  • Condensate Drain Line
  • Condensate Pump
  • Dirty Air filter
  • Low Refrigerant

The Cause:

  • Evaporator Coil cools the warm air blown over it. The condensation causes moisture to build up and leak
  • Drain pans can get rusted or damage if the A/C is older (12-15 years). Water seeps through the damaged or rusted drain pans.
  • Condensate Drain Lines gets clogged with dust, dirt, sludge or mold which backs up into your home.
  • Condensate pumps can break which causes water backup as it isn't pumped outside.
  • Air filters get dirty and block airflow to the evaporator coil which builds up moisture.
  • Low Refrigerant lowers the pressure in the A/C system causing the evaporator coil to freeze.

Your A/C should be inspected regularly so Air filters and et cetera are replaced. If you need a service professional to detect a leak in your home, don't hesitate to contact All Dry USA for your needs.
