Why You May Experience a Leaky Unit

Your air conditioner can extract both heat and humidity from the air and this is all possible due to the refrigeration operation that takes place. There are a series of coils that are responsible for this to happen. In addition a chemical reaction which takes place due to the use of refrigerant also aids the process.

The refrigerant exhales the heat from the coil on the inside and vaporizers out into a gas.  Consequently, the coil chills and then collects water vapor from the air.   A badly stationed condensate tray or a congested drainpipe can cause leaks from your unit.  According to the location of your air conditioner, there can be plenty of damage incurred. If you are currently experiencing this you will need to call a technician immediately so as to safe guard your investment form further damage.
