What Can You Do About Blocked Air Conditioning Drains?
Is your condensate drain leaky even when your air conditioning is off?
Is it bad if you ignore a blocked AC drain?
What could happen?
When your air conditioning is operating properly, the drain will only drip when the AC is operating. The puddle that forms outside should be small. If you notice continuous dripping or a large amount of water, you should have your air conditioning unit inspected immediately for signs of a blocked drain.
Blocked drains are something you don’t want to ignore. There could be many consequences, including:
- Water damage
- Toxic mold (related to water damage)
- Bad air quality
- System breakdown
- Fire (because of water flooding the electrical components)
What causes blocked drains?
In most cases, it’s because dust and bacteria find their way into the line. When this happens, it can form a sludge that accumulates and blocks the pipe. This happens when your air filter is dirty or inefficient, allowing too much dust to enter. However, even a small amount of bacteria or mold can multiply fast, causing a blockage.

They were quick with quote, always on time and had it installed in a very short period of time, coordinating with electrician who worked with the same timeline, consulting me on every step. I’m so pleased with the Mitsubishi system and the job they did.”

“I have used CMR Mechanical for many years to maintain my steam boiler. They are very knowledgeable and, at my request, have helped me understand how to maintain it. Whenever I have had a problem they responded promptly. I never feel as if they are pushing me to spend extra money. On the contrary, have helped me figure out how not to have emergency calls in the winter and, in fact, my need to call them in the winter has gone away since we changed what to do during routine fall maintenance. I would recommend them without reservation,” says Eve in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
