AC Unit Drain Overflow Clean-Up in Dallas & Fort Worth, TX
Causes of AC Unit Drain Overflow in DFW Homes
Clogged Drain Line
A clogged condensate drain line is the most common cause of water leaking from your AC into your home. If the drain line gets clogged with dust, dirt, sludge, or mold, that water backs up into your home. In that case, you'll need to unclog it.
Mold, Algae, and Other Fungus
When an air conditioner's drain pan is full of water, the most common culprit is a clogged drainpipe. Inside the refrigerant coils and pipes is a breeding ground for algae, mold, and the like. Over time, algae and mold can clog the A/C drain pipe and cause water to build up and leak into the drain pan.
Cracked/Corroded Drain Line/Leaks
AC unit drain overflow can also originate from a cracked or corroded condensate drain pan. The drain line can form cracks or holes due to stress, accidental impact, or age. Clogs caused by debris or mold can also cause leaks through an overflowing condensate drain pan.
Problems Caused By an AC Unit Drain Overflow in Dallas-Fort Worth
If you get a drain line clog, water can build up and flows OVER the “overflow” pan and onto the attic floor or in your HVAC closet creating havoc with your system, potentially causing it to shut down, water flow to slow down, or in more extreme cases, causing water damage to your home.
AC unit drain line overflow will damp many parts of your home creating conditions that are ripe for the development of mold and algae. As these organisms develop, they can contaminate your indoor air, which can lead to health problems. They can also damage your AC equipment and contribute to condensate drain clogs.
