Always Check For Clogged Up Drains
When you call home AC services, they have a few standard procedures to follow when they are doing standard maintenance for air conditioning units. One of these processes includes checking for clogs in condensate drains.
A condensate drain is the drain, which opens on the furnace, starting from the cooling coil drain, it runs all the way down to the floor drain.
The primary cause for clogged up drains is the presence of bacterial slime in water. When your air conditioner is running, the servicemen will check the spot where the line drains into the floor drain just to check if the water is actually getting drained.
If the water is not being drained then the presence of a blockage is confirmed. Once this is confirmed, the servicemen turn to check out the drain hooks and the drain pan on the surface. To start off with, they turn the air conditioners off and then go about unclogging the drain.
There are several ways of unclogging drains. Servicemen usually do not use chemicals to unclog them but use mechanisms like ‘drain snakes’ that go through the drain till they find the clog and remove it. Other methods include using plumbing wrenches, or using baking soda and vinegar with hot water to unclog the pipe. It is usually better to opt for professional services as far as your HVAC system is concerned.
