Air conditioner leak damage repair provided in Plant City, Lakeland, and surrounding areas of central Florida.
An air conditioning leak can wind up causing catastrophic damage if it goes undetected.
In Florida, air conditioning is essential to survive the humid, hot summers we have. But when that A/C unit breaks and starts leaking inside your residential or commercial property, it can spell trouble for your building. If that leak goes undetected, it can wind up causing catastrophic damage inside your walls.
At True Builders, our trained contractors can spot A/C leak damage and repair it for you in Plant City, Lakeland, Winter Haven, and the surrounding areas of central Florida.
How Do Air Conditioning Leaks Happen?
Air conditioners are built to last a good 15-20 years or so, but only when they are cared for properly. If the unit is neglected or the A/C is run constantly, the system can break or pipes can clog. When that happens, water from the unit ends up leaking everywhere. This is especially a problem when A/C parts are in your attic, located on the second floor, or inside a cabinet.
What Kind of Damage Can These Leaks Cause?
As with any type of water damage, air conditioning leaks can cause a lot of undesirable side effects. As water seeps down into the walls of your home or building, it will stay there and create ideal conditions for mold to form. When mold forms, you can face health risks, especially if it is toxic black mold. If you begin to notice any musty smells or visible water stains, contact a contractor immediately. Water damage can also affect flooring, causing it to warp.
How Long Does It Take to Repair an A/C Leak?
The length of time it will take to repair a leak from your air conditioner depends on how large the leak was and how long it went undetected. If it is a small leak, we will be able to come in pretty quickly to fix the issue and dry out any wet areas with our drying equipment.
However, if it is a larger leak and has gone undetected for some time, we may have to remove drywall, perform mold remediation services, and then replace the drywall or any other wet items we had to remove. If your A/C stops working or is not acting right, then you could potentially have a leak. We recommend that any time your A/C acts up, you contact an HVAC professional to evaluate.
Curious to know if this will be covered by your insurance policy? It's not a simple answer when it comes to A/C leaks, so make sure to contact your insurance company to find out.
