    How to Stop an Air Conditioner from Causing Water Damage Utah

    wiring-whole-house-audio-system-blueprintMany home owners will suffer water damage Utah resulting from water dripping from a leaky air conditioner. Often this problem will become noticeable when the home owner observes the occurrence of pooling water in the drain pan of the air conditioning unit. Typically, air conditioners will come fully equipped with a drain for the specific purpose of channeling any accumulated water to the outside of the house. However, if any water begins to pool in the drain pan itself this is a prime indicator that the air conditioner has suffered a malfunction.

    To prevent this situation from happening in the first place as well as to prevent the resultant water damage Utah it is vitally important that the home owner has the unit checked by a qualified technician on a regular basis. One function the technician will perform is to clear the drain line of any obstruction. Moreover, the technician will inspect the contactor, coils and the refrigerant pressure to make sure they are all properly functioning within normal parameters.

    There are several steps a home owner can take to make sure their air conditioner continues to function properly. First, a home owner should replace the filters on a monthly basis. Second, a home owner should install an overflow shut off mechanism directly to the drain line which will disable the air conditioner in the event that the drain line experiences a back up of water. Third, a home owner should take action to correctly install their coolant equipment. Doing so will ensure that the water drains properly and does not cause damage to the house in which the air conditioner is installed.

    The Destructive Power of Water

    Never underestimate the untold damage that water can wreak upon an innocent house. Many a house has been destroyed by water damage Utah and never lived to tell the tale. Mind you, I am not saying that houses can talk despite the oft quoted phrase “if these walls could talk.” Indeed, a careful reading of that phrase will confirm the reality of the non talking nature that all houses possess. I think it is quite clear and common knowledge to all that houses do not talk. At least they do not talk in a language which can be readily understood by the people that live and make their lives within the confines of the house’s four walls.

     

    If I may return to the point with which I started this piece of writing, the power of water damage Utah should never, ever be underestimated. Water can cause the wood with which the four walls were constructed to rot. Water can seep into out of the way places and cause mold to grow. In some cases a flash flood can remove a house from its very foundation and deposit it somewhere down stream.
    Some water damage can be repaired. Other water damage is so devastating that it cannot be repaired. And although water is often thought of as the necessary ingredient for life to exist it can also be the agent of death. In fact there is a member of the Hindu pantheon name Kali (I believe) who is the goddess of both destruction and new life. In a sense this is the way of the universe. Death clears the way for life to begin anew in the grand scheme of things. That said, most people live in a more mundane existence where if water damages their home they call a professional to come and clean up the mess.
