I was a little bit stunned when I saw a big amount of water on the floor when I went to do some laundry in the basement.
At first I thought somehow the washing equipment was leaking water, however the water wasn’t coming from there! Then I thought maybe I had a leaking pipe anywhere down there, however there were no leaking pipes.
The water was undoubtedly leaking from the Heating and Air Conditioning device itself, and it scared me because I had no clue what was wrong, and my first thought was to call an Heating and Air Conditioning professional, however instead I got on the cellphone with some friendsâ€¦ Everybody told me that the problem wasn’t even that big of a deal. They said it sounded prefer our condensate line was clogged up because that’s usually why water leaks when your A/C plan is running. They told me to simply take our shop-vac and wrap a wet rag around the condensate hose to get a great seal and suck out all the dirt and debris, sure enough, that did the trick! Once the drain was no longer clogged, the pump had no issue with pumping the water where it belongs, in the drain! When I told our buddies that their solution to our problem worked, they laughed and said they saved me a great $100 at least. They said some companies would charge up to $500 to cover a “repair” prefer that if it were a commercial Heating and Air Conditioning system. A buddy was saying how that happened at his last job and the boss was so angry when he discovered what the actual problem was.
