If you have noticed water around the base of your HVAC unit or a wet patch near your home air conditioner, you need to take the matter seriously. Never think it is normal for water to collect at the base or around your unit. And ignoring it could end up repairs that will make a hole in your pocket.
It would do you good to check the ‘A coil’ or the evaporation coil of your home air conditioning unit. This coil is known to ‘sweat’ or collect moisture, which could be the cause for the leakage or wet patch. Ideally, the coil should run into a pan. Then it needs to drain into a small pump – the condensate pump. If you find a little water at the base of your unit, it means that the condensate pipe of your central air conditioning unit is partially clogged. On the other hand, if you find the likes of a miniature pool, there is a possibility that the pipe is more than a little clogged. Fixing such problems calls for expertise that only hvac technicians have.
