So, its summer and your air conditioner has been running just fine in this hot Amarillo, TX heat. And then you notice water damage on your ceiling. Your AC is leaking water all over and it’s causing a fair amount of damage. What happened? When your air conditioner is running it is creating condensation. All that water has to go somewhere. At the time of installation, a drain pan and drain line are usually put in to usher that leaking water out of the house. Sometimes that drain line will become plugged causing the drain pan to fill with water, which could cause it to overflow.

Grizzle Heating & Air offers several solutions to help alleviate the issue.  A quick diagnostic of the system will identify the problem and ensure that we discuss the right solution with you. Having a drain pan combined with a safety switch and a flood alert is one way to protect your home. We also suggest having your air conditioner maintained regularly, as this will help keep it clean and alert you to any minor issues that could result in big problems.  Sometimes, when your unit freezes it will leak into your drain pan causing it to leak. Check out our blog on your unit freezing up for more information.

If you notice that water is leaking from your AC, turn it off and schedule an appointment with Grizzle Heating & Air. We will have one of our professionally trained technicians get you fixed up. Call us at 806-655-7676.
