Water on Your Basement Floor?

Walking down into the basement and finding a puddle of water on your floor can be quite an irritating surprise – especially if some of your belongings were damaged. Your first thought is, "where did this water come from!?" The answer is probably your HVAC system. 

Air Conditioner Leaking Water?

When your AC is cooling your home, it is also dehumidifying your home. The water collected from the air is sent through some piping down a drain. However, if that drain is blocked, you'll have water on your floor surrounding the unit. 

These pipes and drains can collect dirt, grow algae, and more that can cause a clog. And this issue isn't only for those who have their HVAC system in their basement. It can happen on any floor – imagine the damage a leaking AC unit could do if yours is on the first or second floor.

So, how can you prevent this clog?

Flush and Clear HVAC Drains

Each spring and fall, we tout preventative maintenance because it truly does prevent things such as this from happening.  During a Spring Tune-Up, we make sure to clean those drains so you won't run into this problem. 

If you missed your spring cleaning, no worries – you can also call for a checkup to ensure your unit is running properly and everything is in working order. 

Preventative maintenance like this can help your equipment run longer, stronger, and more efficient while lowering the chance of damage to your personal property!
