Have you ever wondered what happens to all the moisture your AC collects during the cooling process? Your air conditioner has a part called a condensate drain that is designed to collect and channel away this moisture. But water and condensation aren’t all that’s capable of entering this drain. Dust and dirt can accumulate and things like mold spores can develop in this line and become trapped in the drain.
Just like with any drain line with a small diameter, the condensate line can eventually become clogged to the point that no condensation can pass through. This water may back up into the air conditioner or around the surrounding floor and walls. As you can imagine, leaking water is never a good thing in a home. Learn why this happens and what you can do to prevent it. If your AC develops a drain clog, give us a call for prompt air conditioning service in Hammond.
