Sure, it can sound like a serious problem, but most of the time this is just an indication of a clogged drain. It’s usually not an expensive repair item, but you shouldn’t ignore it because of this minor stature. Ongoing moisture and standing water around your heating and cooling equipment can lead to mold and mildew, affecting the air quality throughout your entire house and the lifespan of your HVAC system.
Air conditioning units produce condensation as a normal part of the operating process. Most of the time, although it depends on 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!
M&K can make a service call to diagnose and fix the problem. We’ll send a trained technician with comprehensive knowledge of heating and cooling systems, and specific experience dealing with this very same water issue literally hundreds of times. While there, we will do a full system inspection just to make sure it’s not something more serious than a clogged drain.
