Ten checks to prevent water leaks from air conditioning units
A water leak can cause a lot of damage, especially when it goes unnoticed. Sometimes, the resulting damp can be hard to spot – and only becomes apparent when it’s too late. That’s why it’s important to stay on your guard, and to make sure that condensates are being drained properly from your air conditioning unit. Here are some things you can check to prevent disaster – or at the very least to troubleshoot leaks.
|Note for domestic users:
First and foremost, make sure your air conditioning system is monitored by a professional by arranging an annual service.
Ideally, you should book in this service after winter when your air conditioning unit has been out of use for an extended period of time, or when it’s been used in heating mode (in which case the condensate flows to the outdoor unit, leaving the drainage system for the indoor unit unused).
