HVAC and the Current Heatwave
What Does This Heat Wave Mean To your HVAC System?
With the local current heat index being 103 and above recently this means that your HVAC system is working overtime. We have had an influx of calls from HVAC systems causing water leaks in homes and businesses, either from clogged lines or the drip pan overfilling. Here are some ways to help keep that from happening.
- Call your HVAC company and have them service your unit. This is the most efficient and easiest, but the most expensive.
- Check your main condensation line. It is usually located near the ground outside the home and it slowly drips water when the HVAC is on.
- If the main line isn’t dripping than you need to check the secondary line which is usually above a window or door. You will need to find a way to flush this to remove any blockage. Make sure you research how to properly clear your lines before trying this yourself.
- The drip pan, check to make sure it has no holes or rust around it. If it is damaged you will need to replace it.
If you have a water leak than we can come out and perform a free inspection at your residence or business. If your HVAC leaks than call SERVPRO® of Conway & Faulkner Counties at 501-328-3301
