AC Repair Professionals

What causes leaking AC units, and can a leaking air conditioner be fixed? Fixes exist for the widespread problem of air conditioners leaking. The issue could escalate into a much bigger one if you don't take care of it, and then you'll need the help of an expert AC repair professional.

A leaking air conditioner could result from a damaged drain pan, clogged condensate drains, or a clogged air filter.

The necessity of regular air conditioner maintenance in Tempe to avoid expensive problems is discussed in greater detail here with Rescue One Air.


Blocked Air Filters Can Lead to Tempe AC Repair

Once a month and more frequently during high-use times of the year, you should either replace or inspect the air filter.

With a pre-filter, a HEPA filter may capture the tiniest of particles and survive for up to two years before needing to be replaced. If you need help with air filtration, call Rescue Air One.

If your air filter is unclean, evaporator coils may freeze and leak water when they thaw. If your air conditioner isn't turning on, check the filter first because a dirty filter is often the culprit.
