A lot of service calls are requested to handle a water leak or clogged condensate drain line during the summer. Air conditioning contractors will get busy during Florida’s summer of heat and humidity for all types of service calls. Bertie Heating & Air Conditioning wants to service your home comfort system, but there may be some actions you could perform until a service technician arrives at your home. We’re always looking for avenues to serve you better!
Air conditioners are also designed to remove a certain amount of humidity during the condensation process – to collect water vapor from indoor air. This water has to be drained away from the home. A PVC drain pipe is most commonly used for the condensate line, but it can clog over time without proper attention. The culprits to clog this drain can range from algae build-up to frogs; seriously! In some occasions, the entire piping wasn’t properly installed or channeled.
If these Do-It-Yourself tips can’t fix your drain line, please call a professional for a service request. You can also sign up for our Planned Maintenance Agreement that includes clearing your drain line.
