It could look like a serious problem, but most of the time it’s an indication of a small, easily repaired issue. However, it should still be taken care of as soon as you notice it. Continuous moisture and stagnant water near your heating and cooling equipment can cause mold and mildew, affecting the health of your family and the functional lifespan of your HVAC system.
Air conditioners produce condensation as a normal by-product of continuous use. Most of the time, depending where your unit is located, a small drain pipe guides condensation water to a floor drain. If the drain somehow becomes clogged, you will see water showing up where it shouldn’t. More times than not, the water starts to pool under the furnace.
Appleby Systems can visit your home to diagnose and repair the problem. You can even save $15 on your diagnostic and repair service by signing up to our mailing list here. Package your repair with a full system inspection just to make sure you don’t have another problem lurking behind the air conditioner box.
