Signs of a Clogged AC Drain Pipe

Signs of a Clogged AC Drain Pipe

  • Water flooding around the air handler unit.
  • If your AC is not cooling or running at all due to a clogged AC pipe, the water safety switch would have been triggered preventing it from operating. There could be water around your safety switch which would have triggered it to cease functionality.
  • A moldy smell throughout the house. This could be as a result of a build-up somewhere inside the system. Your AC is still running but doesn’t smell good. Mold has been known to cause health issues so be sure to act on this right away if it is the case.
  • If your condensate pan is full more often than not, you could be dealing with a potential clog. In order to prevent mold from growing, act on this as soon as possible.
  • If you notice water damage around your AC unit, near the fan or on the floor, this could be a sign of a blockage somewhere along your drain line.

You may be able to clear a minor blockage using a wet-dry vacuum. Locate the exterior end of your condensate line, which is usually a PVC pipe near your outdoor condenser unit. You’ll need an additional attachment to secure the vacuum and create a tight seal with the drain line. You can buy these at home improvement stores. Attach the wet-vac to the drain and run it for three minutes to pull out the clog.

If the problem is a disconnected condensate line, cracked drain pan or worn out pump, and you’re familiar with the basics of air conditioner maintenance, you may be able to reconnect the line or replace the pan or pump yourself. If you’re unsure, contact a repair technician. For other issues, such as severe clogging or lack of a P-trap, call a technician from Innovative Restorations.

You could end up damaging your A/C system by attempting to repair it yourself. To keep your drain clear, pour a cup of white vinegar into the line once a month to discourage algae and mold growth.
