What’s Wrong With Your Drain Lines?

April 12th, 2021

Believe it or not, your air conditioner has to deal with a fair share of moisture every year. As it cools your home, it also dehumidifies it and draws water out of the air as a byproduct. That’s why every air conditioning system has a condensate line that allows condensing water to travel out of the unit and outside where it enters the environment. Interesting, right?

That is until your drain line starts causing some serious problems for your home comfort, your air conditioner, and more. It can clog, it can be dirty and cause mold to grow, and it can even cause so much damage that it causes your ductless mini split or other air handlers to fall off the wall because of moisture.

Today, we’re going to focus in on common drain line problems and point you in the direction of our air conditioning repair in Sarasota, FL if you need professional help.
