What to Do When Your Commercial HVAC Leaks

Carrier

Calling in commercial services should be the go-to move when you’re faced with HVAC leaks, especially if you’re unsure of what might be causing them. There are a number of possibilities for this, and some of them are less dire than others. Despite this, it is always a good idea to find a solution quickly, especially given that leaks can cause a world of damage to your property if left unchecked. Beyond that, they could be a sign of critical issues that may eventually force you to replace your unit.

Check to See If Your HVAC Is Dirty

If your unit has grown too dirty as a result of poor maintenance, the built up dust can contribute to leaks. Your unit collects condensation. When there is a lot of dirt present, the condensation can carry that dirt into the AC's drain line. Over time this can clog, leading to a backup of water which will eventually turn into a leak. A thorough cleaning can potentially remedy this, but if it doesn't, or if you're uncertain of how to proceed, professional assistance is a good idea.

Keep an Eye Out for Frozen Coils

If your leak is near the indoor AC unit, check the evaporator coil, which should look like a coiled tube. If this component freezes up, your system is facing a potential failure. If you see ice, turn off the unit right away. Avoid the temptation to break the ice yourself (you could cause serious damage), and get in touch with a professional HVAC technician immediately.
