Preventing HVAC Water Damage in Your Home
Your Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system can cause extensive water damage if it’s not maintained correctly. Common causes of HVAC water damage include a clogged drain, frozen evaporator coils, and pipes that are not connected correctly.
Here are some tips to help you prevent HVAC water damage in your home:
- Change the HVAC filter regularly
- Clean the condenser
- Maintain the condensation line and the overflow drain pan
Knowing how to prevent AC from leaking is sometimes not enough to prevent your unit from causing water damage. When leaks occur, the moisture promotes mold growth that can contaminate the air in your home. If you experience HVAC related water damage be sure to contact SERVPRO of Moorpark/Fillmore/Santa Paula for immediate restoration.
