Are you noticing condensation around your ac vents in your home around your AC Units? This could be attributed to many different factors. Let’s go over a few ways to diagnose these air conditioning issues as well as solutions to getting them fixed.
What are a few things we should look out for with water dripping from AC Vents?
1. Humid Weather
The humid weather certainly isn’t new to us in South Florida, but how does this affect our air conditioners and why does it create dripping water from AC Vents? Ducted air conditioners that are meant to remove moisture from the air may be overwhelmed by the Florida humidity and this could cause leaking AC vents.
2. Low Refrigerant
The Refrigerant in your air conditioner units are meant to keep evaporator coils from freezing over. If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, you could experience a leaky AC vent.
3. Dirty Air Filters
Similar to low refrigerant, dirty air filters can cause evaporator coils to freeze up. If your filter is blocked, the coils will freeze up and your indoor unit won’t be able to pull air in which could in turn melt the ice on the coils. It’s very important that you replace your air filters monthly to avoid issues like leaky ac units.
4. Damaged Drain Lines
This may be self-explanatory, but drain lines are meant to drain the air conditioning unit. If these are damaged, you may notice puddles. This could be a simple fix with a quick service call. If you think this is the issue you’re dealing with, please contact us.
5. Broken Drain Pan
Similar to drain lines, the drain pans can be an easy fix for our expert AC technicians.
6. Faulty AC Installations
Lastly, faulty AC Installations. We’ve seen these many times and when an AC isn’t installed properly, drain lines, insulation and drain pans can become problematic.
