Your air conditioner may also be able to remove humidity that may be present in the air. If so, all of this water will collect into your air handler’s drip pan, where it flows out into a drain tube that leads out of your home. However, this air conditioner drain tube can clog in time, and lead to water damage. |
Where do clogs come from?
Among the causes is natural build up of bacteria found in the air. As this water drips through the drain tube, it leaves behind residue that may turn into algae or mold. Since the drain tube leads outdoors, it's also possible that a clog forms on the other end. For example, if the drain is in a dusty place, it can become clogged with a dirt clod.
How can I tell if I have a clog?
Many modern air handlers shut themselves down once it senses that the air drip pan is overflowing, but older models don’t offer this feature and won't be able to sense this. You might not notice the problem until water starts dripping out of your ceiling or vents.
