Common AC Repairs
Clean Drain Line
The process of air conditioning may seem like a mystery to many homeowners, but one thing is true: condensation is a big part of the process. The system is built to handle condensation as part of a design that extracts humidity from the home’s interior. This is why the system has a condensate drain line, to allow the water to drain away. If it gets clogged, like any line could, it may stop the system from working or cause permanent damage. These symptoms help you determine when you should call for the AC Repair Bradenton homeowners prefer.
When your system is working properly, it runs refrigerant through evaporator coils inside the home. The coils pull heat and humidity from the indoor air. Underneath these coils is a pan to collect the condensation. This pan has a pipe that allows the water to run off. If there is a clog in the line, the pan will eventually fill up. This is the time you will start to notice signs of a problem.
Signs of a Clogged AC Drain Line
Like any piece of plumbing in your home, your condensate drain line can get clogged. The way it needs to be fixed depends on what is causing the clog. These problems should get your attention:
- you are not getting effective cooling output
- you find water leaks near the evaporator coils
- the system keeps turning on, then off before reaching the desired temperature
Air conditioning is an electrical system. You already know not to mix water with electricity, so it is easy to understand why this issue needs a prompt repair. If you leave it for too long, pooling water can damage those components and require a more complicated repair.
How AC Repair in Bradenton Solves the Problem
Dirt, dust, ice and algae are all common causes of drain line clogs. You have to know why it is there to figure out how to get rid of it for good. If the clogs are created by another problem in the system, like a dirty filter, simply cleaning the drain is only a short-term solution. When you hire a technician to fix the problem, they can flush out the drain and determine if anything in your system is likely to make the issue return. This allows you to get a long-term answer that keeps your air conditioning running better for at least the next cooling season.
