What Causes AC Leaks?

There are a number of possible causes behind a leaky air conditioner. Your AC in Santa Clarita Valley, San Fernando Valley, or Ventura County works hard to keep you cool in the SoCal heat, so it’s natural to need a repair from time to time. Whatever the source of the leak, our expert technicians will resolve it so you can turn your AC back on without fear of damage. Here are a few of the most common causes of a leaky AC unit:

Cracked or Clogged Condensate Drain

Your unit’s drain line can get clogged with debris or dirt, preventing the water formed from condensation from draining properly. If your air conditioner has not been properly maintained, it can rust and crack, which can also lead to leaks. If you keep your unit maintained regularly with Aladdin AC, you can be sure your condensate drain will be kept clean and clear to avoid this issue.

Dirty Air Filters

If your filters are dirty, airflow is restricted within the unit. This can cause your evaporator coil to freeze then melt as your unit cycles on and off, releasing excess moisture. This is best prevented with regular maintenance to keep your filter clear.

Overflow Pan

The overflow pan is intended to catch all the condensation run-off within your unit. If it has cracks or holes, it will not drain correctly. An Aladdin technician can remedy with this with a quick repair!

Proper Installation

Improper installation can lead your drain line to loosen over time. If you have a newer unit, the condensate trap may have been poorly designed. Your Aladdin technician will inspect your set-up and determine if and how your set-up can be remedied.
