While this sounds like a serious problem, most of the time it’s an indication of a clogged drain. Though usually not an expensive repair item, it still needs to be attended to. Ongoing moisture and standing water around your heating and cooling equipment can lead to mold and mildew, affecting your health and the lifespan of your HVAC system.
Air conditioning units normally produce condensation as part of their operating process. Most of the time, depending where your unit is located, a small drain pipe takes the water to a floor drain. If the drain or a drain pipe becomes clogged then you will see water showing up where it shouldn’t be. It’s surprising how often that happens to be under the furnace!
If you notice something like this give us a call to diagnose and fix the problem. We’ll send a trained technician with comprehensive knowledge of heating and cooling systems. While there, we will do a full system inspection just to make sure it’s not something more serious than a clogged drain.
