water spilling out of my inside unit,
what can I do about this?
If you do not see ice build-up on the larger copper tubing
a black, spongee insulation)
when you run your system, then you probably have a clogged drain line.
A clogged drain line is usually caused by algae build-up
inside the drain
line. And yes, there is
something you can do to prevent this condition. Algae is a
and will grow in your drain
line until it clogs the line.
The air handler provides a cool, damp environment for
development of molds
and mildew and if
left untreated these growths can spread into your ductwork.
moderate to light buildup is
present then there are chemical disinfectants specifically designed for
in air handlers that will
kill the existing mold and mildew and control new growth.......
These disinfectants are safe and very effective and are applied by
spraying into the filter
intake and by placing "Algae Strips" directly in the drain pan.
the coil has mold or mildew
present then it also should be treated. Make sure that the
the cooling or evaporator coil
is clean so that air can pass through freely.
don't forget! Dirt is the biggest enemy of your air conditioner, and a
good air filter is the best friend! Giving your air conditioning
system an efficient, high MERV rating air filter is the best thing you can do
for your air conditioner. A good air filter will
extend the life of your air conditioner because the important parts, like the
blower assembly, the cooling coil, and other inner parts will stay
cleaner, operate more efficiently and last longer.
And, as a side benefit of having a good air filter, your family and you
will enjoy breathing much healthier indoor air. Air that will be free of
dust mites, mold, mildew, dust, pet dander, etc. etc.
