1. Have your system routinely inspected

It’s advised that you inspect your unit’s AC condensation line for moisture every time you change your air filter. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, call us! We’re more than happy to take a look.

2. Check for clogs

When algae builds up inside your condensation line, water will overflow and drip. This line should be cleaned every 3-6 months, keeping things running smoothly and preventing air conditioner condensation from causing problems. Contact a professional for a thorough clean.

3. Collect dripping water

If the condensate line drips outside, don’t just let it fall freely. Instead, collect the free water with a barrel, and use it to water plants! This will not only stop air conditioner condensation from damaging your home, but will also save water.

Air conditioner condensation is natural, but don’t let it get excessive. These tips should help you understand what’s normal and whether or not a problem needs to be addressed.
