How Do I Prevent a Clogged Condensation Line?

Maintenance agreements are the best way to prevent a cruddy condensation line.

Without a maintenance agreement in place, algae and mold can grow unchecked and clog the air conditioner condensation line. A backed-up condensation line can create major headaches, including water damage, and mold and bacteria growth in the line. If the water backs up and shorts out an electrical component, it can even cause a fire. The good news is all of these problems can be avoided by having your condensation line cleared out on a routine basis.

When you call a professional HVAC technician, he will shoot high-pressure water or air through the condensation line to clear out old water, algae, and any other gunk that’s clogging up the line. For your family’s health and safety, this important step needs to be done regularly.

The hot summer weather is here, so if you haven’t had your air conditioner looked over in a while, now is the time. If you have noticed a reduction in your air conditioner’s performance over the last few summers, it is especially important to have the unit looked over by a professional. Get your system back in good working order before the real summer heat and humidity set in.

One of the best investments you can make for your home is an HVAC maintenance agreement. This arrangement will give you a couple of system inspections every year. Your technician will alert you to emerging issues before they become full-blown emergencies. Routine tasks like clearing the condensation line will go a long way to extend the life of your HVAC system.
