Leaking Air Conditioner in Tierrasanta Home Causes Water Damage in Ceiling?

4/23/2024 (Permalink)

A leaking air conditioner causes a water stain on the ceiling.  We restore water damage 24 hours a day in San Diego.

Our local Mission Valley East team has been restoring water damage for Tierrasanta residents for many years. Air conditioners can fail and cause water damage in a home through several mechanisms:

Clogged Drain Line: Over time, the condensate drain line of an air conditioner can become clogged with dirt, algae, or debris. When this happens, water accumulates in the drain pan and may overflow, leading to water damage around the air conditioner unit.

Frozen Evaporator Coil: If the evaporator coil of the air conditioner freezes due to restricted airflow or low refrigerant levels, it can cause ice buildup. When the ice melts, it can overwhelm the drain pan, resulting in water leakage and potential water damage.

Cracked or Damaged Drain Pan: The drain pan beneath the evaporator coil is designed to catch condensate and direct it to the drain line. If the drain pan becomes cracked or damaged, water may leak out onto the floor or surrounding areas, causing water damage.

Condensate Pump Failure: In some air conditioning systems, a condensate pump is used to pump water from the drain pan to a drainage point. If the condensate pump fails or becomes clogged, water may back up and cause overflow, leading to water damage.
