Have you noticed that there is a puddle of water around your air conditioning system? Chances are that this one really threw you for a loop, especially if you have a basic understanding of how your air conditioner actually cools your home—evaporating refrigerant to remove heat from the air, then condensing that refrigerant outside in order to release its heat. You’ll notice that nowhere in this process does water come into play.
So what is up with that puddle? Maybe my plumbing leaked and it just collected there? Well, it is entirely possible that the water did originate from your air conditioning system—though not in the traditional sense of a “leak” that you may be thinking. Today we’ll discuss some of the possible causes of this conundrum, as well as when you should contact us for air conditioning repairs in Plano, TX.
