If you see a small leak in your
air conditioning system, you may think it’s nothing more than an eyesore. However,
even a small leak can lead to serious damage. At Del-Air, we have been
helping Florida residents stay cool and comfortable in their homes since
1983. Learn more about the causes of air conditioner leaks below, and
then call to schedule an AC checkup with one of our talented technicians.

Understanding AC Leaks

Condensation line obstructions are just one of the many reasons that water
can leak into an air conditioning unit’s indoor section.
Over time, condensate may overflow into your home, resulting in water
damage and even mold. Along with aggravating allergies and asthma, mold
can lead to dizziness, headaches, and other issues. Periodic AC maintenance
is the best way to protect both your system and the health of your family.

Additionally, air conditioners can suffer refrigerant chemical leaks. If
you don’t replace the lost fluid regularly, your AC may not be able
to keep your home as cool as you would like. Further, as fluid continues
to drip through your system, the leak has the potential to grow due to
corrosion in the unit. Allowing the air conditioner to continue its normal
operation while it’s damaged can result in added stress to the system.
In the long run, leaks can damage your system beyond repair, requiring
you to purchase a costly replacement far ahead of schedule. Regular maintenance
is the best way to catch problems early.
