If you suspect that your AC unit is leaking water from inside, there are a few things you can do. First, look around the room and see if there are any stains on the ceiling. If it looks like something is dripping down from your AC unit or ducts, check to see if there’s water in the drain pan underneath it. If so, take off the front panel of your air conditioner (or hire someone to do so) and make sure no wires or parts have fallen into where they could short out and start a fire.
Next step: check every inch of every duct pipe in your system for leaks—you’ll find them most often at joints where two sections meet up with each other. Finally, inspect all components for damage caused by moisture buildup before plugging everything back into place and firing up your air conditioner again!
In many cases, a leaking AC unit is caused by a clog in the drain line or condensate drain line. If the condensate drain line becomes clogged with debris, it’s possible that water is not being drained properly and will cause the system to overheat. This can lead to damage of your AC system components.
To check for a clog in either of these lines, first turn off your air conditioning unit and then look for any visible signs of water leaking from outside it (if you can’t see anything from outside your home’s walls). If you notice water leakage but don’t see anything coming from inside of your home’s walls, there’s likely an issue with one of your lines.
If your air conditioner is acting up, one of these steps may help you fix the problem yourself without calling in a technician!
If your air conditioner is acting up, one of these steps may help you fix the problem yourself without calling in a technician! We hope so, anyway. Remember to always turn off power and test any systems before making any repairs. Even if you’re not sure your AC unit has a problem, it’s good practice to regularly replace or clean its filter. A major component of healthy indoor air quality is clean filters that don’t harbor dust or mold spores! You can also benefit from scheduling regular maintenance from AC professionals who will know exactly what to look for on your particular model and can spot potential problems before they start.
