What are
Water Leaks?

Water leaks from your air conditioner unit can be annoying, unsightly and sometimes the cosmetic damage is expensive to fix, but there’s an easy solution to make sure it doesn’t happen in the first place. Water leaks almost always happen due to, or around the cooling finned coil. This is due to the very cold temperature of the gas inside the coil and the warm air being cooled, naturally causing condensation, much like placing a refrigerated glass of water on a table at room temperature. This condensation is a natural phenomenon and unable to be prevented, but water damage from condensation is easy to stop with a few precautions. Condensate from the finned coil is collected in a drain tray and piped outside, if the finned coil is blocked with dirt or the drain tray is blocked or cracked, water drips onto the ceiling or worse onto expensive furnishings. Another reason for condensate to leak is if ducting to the room entry grille is not insulated properly or sealing correctly. Our technicians at Local Air Conditioning Repairs can easily fix all of these problems and can be at your home in Sydney’s metropolitan area in no time.

How can we fix
your water leaks?

Many times water leaks result from dirt and dust in the finned coil or insects making a home in the drip tray or drain piping. An Local Air Conditioning Repairs service visit can easily make sure condensate water drains outside remove all these problems.

How to prevent
Water Leaks

Water leaks often occur when the finned coil drain is poorly maintained or ducting is not insulated allowing cold air to escape before reaching the room entry grille. It’s very important to keep the drain tray and piping to the outside clear and in good condition. Ensuring the ducting from the central unit mounted in the ceiling is well insulated and no breaks, holes or poorly fitted joints are evident. Cleaning the finned coil regularly to remove dirt and dust will also ensure the condensate drains safely away. Local Air Conditioning Repairs can assist with all of these items to make sure your air conditioner unit serves you well and maintains your comfort. We recommend cleaning the finned coil at least every 12 months, if in a dusty environment or around pets, maybe every 6 months.

We can also make sure your finned coil and filters stay clean with our unique Eco-clean treatment every alternate year where we treat the coil with a special solution to make it both hygienic and dust resistant and the filters too. Call us to set up a maintenance program for you. We’ll remind you close to when the next service is due and we can check your entire system making sure your air conditioner unit is always performing to its peak.
