How to Handle a Leaking Air Conditioning System

- 3:11 pm - July 13th, 2018


When you air conditioning system is hard at work, it collects water and removes it from the home – it’s how dehumidification works! But, there’s a difference between water that’s been collected by your system and water that’s leaking from your system. There are several reasons your air conditioning system may leak, and E.T. Lawson can help with each one.

Let’s take a look at the common causes of leaks for AC systems:

  • A broken condenser pump, the part of your air conditioning system responsible for removing condensation
  • AC Unit installed incorrectly, if the equipment isn’t installed perfectly level it can cause issues such as leaks
  • Frozen evaporator coil, which can be caused by dirty air filters or low refrigerant levels
  • Excessive pressure, when vents are closed or blocked it can cause excessive pressure that can cause the unit to leak water

Whether you suspect a leak or any other issue with your air conditioning system, it’s important not to try and solve the problem on your own. Instead, call on E.T. Lawson for help! That said, there are things you can do to help increase the longevity of your air conditioning equipment…

  • Change the air filters when necessary
  • Clean dirt and dust from vents to avoid blockage
  • Keep vents clear of furniture, curtains and drapes
  • Trim back trees that overhang outdoor equipment
  • Clear the area around the outdoor equipment of sticks, leaves and other debris

Working together we can ensure your air conditioning system is operating at peak efficiency and lasting longer than systems that aren’t maintained properly. Contact us online for more tips on maintaining your air conditioning equipment, or to request a service.
