In Texas, many homes have their air conditioning system in the attic. This is convenient because it doesn’t take up room in the house. On the other hand, it means that if something is wrong with your system, you could come home to water dripping from your ceiling. An A/C leak in your attic can be devastating! We want to share some tips on how you can make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
1. Quality installation.
It all starts with a quality installation that is guaranteed by a reputable company like All Systems. Poor installation can cause air leakage, a poor slope of the drain line, or lack of safety precautions like float switches. Just because the other company is less expensive doesn’t make it better. They may cut corners when installing to save money where they can. We refuse to cut corners to save a few bucks. We wanna do it right the first time and that’s why we can give a guarantee of our craftsmanship.
2. Regular maintenance.
Next would be maintaining the system by changing the filter regularly and having us out annually to check the cleanliness of the system. Cleanliness of equipment is key to keeping the drain flowing properly. If your drain pipe isn’t clean, mold and mildew can grow inside it. This will eventually stop the water from draining, and that’s when leakage problems can start.
3. Periodic heavy maintenance.
Every few years have us do a maintenance cleaning of the evaporator. We’ll also install time-release drain cleaning pads into the drain pans, to keep your system clean.
With good installation and regular cleaning and maintenance, your system will keep you leak-free. We’re more than happy to come out and take a look at your system, and make sure that everything is clean and working just as it should.
