I made a list of things that needed to be repaired around the house.
I have been checking them off one by one. I had a kitchen faucet that constantly was dripping and a toilet leaking. I finally called a plumber and got those taken care of. I got an electrician over to fix my bathroom ventilation system. I then was able to repair my door from not latching and my busted porch myself. The last item on the list is fixing the air conditioner. The AC system has been leaking water like crazy. I have decided that I am going to be the one that fixes it. I don’t want to throw in the towel and call in a HVAC professional. I want to handle this cooling repair. I looked online and it basically said something is dirty inside my system. I have been going through the whole machine. I replaced the air filter with a newer one. I cleaned the fan blades and added lubrication to the fan motor belt. That didn’t change the leak issue. When I found mold on the cooling coil I thought I struck gold. I cleaned all that out and that didn’t do one thing. Recently I found that the condensate drain being clogged could cause water to leak. There was a bunch of algae in mine. I mucked that out, dried around my system and cleaned it. So far I haven’t seen any water but it is still early. I don’t feel confident checking it off my list just yet.
