Do You Have a Drip at Your Home?
It typically happens when things are quiet, such as in the early morning hours or perhaps one we are lying in bed at night. All of a sudden, we hear a noise of dripping water, and we realize that there is an issue which is occurring. These type of condensation leaks can be problematic and they are not only annoying because of the constant drip, it can actually occur in an area that would cause damage to the home. This is also an issue that may be recognized, not only because of the dripping sound but because of the water that may be pooling outside of the home.
When you contact Select Air as your Grapevine air conditioning repair service, we will do what is necessary to ensure that the condensation leaks are no longer a problem. One of the ways in which we are able to do so is by installing a device that is known as a float switch. A float switch is a relatively simple device, but it is one that can help to prevent issues within the home that are quite serious. It recognizes when there is water pooling in the area of the switch and when it occurs, it can cause appropriate action to be taken which would either cut the power or cause the water to be pumped from the area.
What Can Condensation Leaks Cause?
Condensation leaks are more than just a nuisance. Yes, the dripping noise can be one that is annoying but the fact of the matter is, there may be quite a bit of damage that is occurring behind the scenes. In some cases, the condensation is going to cause damage to drywall or perhaps to flooring. This can either be visible or it may occur behind the wall and significant damage may take place, before it is recognized.
Another issue that may occur as a result of condensation leaks is the development of mold. This is more than a visible problem; it is one that can have serious health consequences for you and your family. Since the condensation often occurs in areas that are out of public view, you may have an issue with mold and not be aware of it. That mold may be circulating through the house and causing health problems for you and your family. Not only can it cause issues with allergies in some individuals, it can cause severe lung problems or even worse.
