Causes of Air Conditioner Water Damage
Air conditioner water damage can be catastrophic, and can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs if left unchecked. The good news is that A/C water damage is easily preventable with regular maintenance and a little observation from time to time.
Dirty coils and low refrigerant pressure can cause the evaporator coils to freeze up and then defrost, which releases more water into your cooling system’s main drain than it can handle. This is what leads to air conditioner water damage! The heat energy from a poor high voltage connection could also cause thousands of dollars in fire damage costs, so we’re not just talking water damage here!
Condensation is produced by the evaporator coil of your air conditioning system, which ties into your plumbing system from the unit’s main drain line. The evaporator coil has an emergency drain pan in case your main drain line gets clogged. If your main drain line and your emergency drain get clogged, water could overflow and start seeping through your ceiling and walls causing air conditioner water damage throughout your home.
