If you are reading this post, your aircon indoor unit is most likely leaking water right now. So what is happening to your aircon? Why is it leaking water? How do you solve this problem? And the most important question you are asking yourself now: Is it expensive? We will use a real case study from one of our customers as an example.
Situation / Problem
Mr R’s aircon indoor unit has been leaking water for a period of time. Water will drip out from the aircon indoor unit after 30 minutes of usage. The leakage caused water dripping sound which affected his sleep. In addition to that, the leak also wet his floor and wall.
Mr R engaged us, Mr Bee Aircon Service & Repair to fix his Aircon problem.
Diagnosis / Source of problem
Our service technician arrived the next day. After few minutes of checking, the source of the leak was from Aircon drain pan (some call it “Aircon tray”). Due to heavy usage and lack of maintenance, huge amount of dust gathered at the blower (cross flow fan). Whenever the Aircon is switched on, all the dust from the blower will fall onto the drain pan. Together with thick layer of slime (“jelly”) accumulated at the drain pan over a period of time without cleaning, the drain pan clogged and water is unable to flow into the drain pipe. When water is unable to drain away, it overflows and water eventually started dripping from the drain pan.
Our service technician did the normal or standard aircon servicing procedures:
- Clean the indoor unit cover
- Clean the drain pan (tray)
- Clean the louver
- Clean the filtering net
- Clear the drain pipe
- Clean the blower
- Clear the fan coil
After all the slime and dust are cleared, no more water accumulate at the drain pan and the water leaking problem solved.
With regular maintenance (recommended quarterly), water leaking problem usually will not happen. With a simple standard servicing procedure, problem can be solved. Cost of normal / standard servicing for 1 indoor unit is $50. If more units are serviced at the same time, per unit servicing cost gets lower. Example to standard service 2 x indoor units is $55 which is $27.50 per unit.
However, there are time where the fan coil and the blower are too dirty due to no maintenance for long period of time. In this case, chemical wash is recommended in order to clear all the dirt once and for all. This is especially for places where normal/standard servicing cannot reach or achieve.
*** This is just one of the common method to solve aircon water leaking problem. There might be other solutions or other reason for the water leakage which will require other kind of solutions.
