A/C or Air Conditioner Leak! What kind of damage can it cause?

 

 

Look closely and you can see the hole on the bottom left hand side of the picture. This A/C leak destroyed flooring and trim in home. The home owner had to have the evaporator coil replaced to stop the leaking water into the hall way  of their home.

 

 

 

Electrical shorts were caused by this A/C drain not being properly maintained. Luckily the home owner was home when the short occurred and shut the A/C unit off at the electrical breaker. Otherwise it could have caused a serious and hazardous fire!

 

Mold Alert!

Look at the mold growth on this air handler in the attic. The mold from the backed up drain was so bad it was growing on the outside of the A/C equipment! This mold contaminated air is being introduced to their home and lungs! Please do not let a drain issue persist, it can cause serious damage and cost many of dollars to repair after the fact.

Air Conditioned Air – where is it going and why am I uncomfortable?

Supply Plenum – allowing cooled or heated air to escape to the attic!

 

As you can see from these pictures there are two different air flow issues that could be causing your discomfort in your home or business.

The supply plenum supplies the conditioned air to your duct work that distributes the air into the living space or work space. If it is losing that cooled or heated  conditioned  air into the attic the system will never perform up to it’s ability.

The return plenum pulls the conditioned air back into your heating or cooling system to be reconditioned to the desired temperature you have set at the thermostat. If the return air is pulling in unconditioned air from the attic it will never be able to perform during extreme outdoor weather.   

So have your heating and cooling system inspected every season to insure your system is not trying to do something it can’t do. Heat and or Cool outdoor air!

Your system will thank you and your pocket book will thank you for the lower utility bills and most of all for your improved COMFORT!

Call A.I.R. Plus today at 405-618-2AIR or 405-421-5191 to have your comfort level checked out! Or email us at gcollins@airokc.com to schedule an inspection or tune-up. Or go to our website at airokc.com

Return Plenum sucking in hot or cold attic air!

It is cold in here! Why? The dog chewed a hole in the heating and cooling duct work!

Hole in the return air plenum/platform.

As you may be able to see from the picture, a dog chewed into the bottom of this return air plenum which is located in the garage. The furnace being located in a garage area is very common, the furnace platform or return air platform/plenum in this case is one piece. So the outdoor air that is in the garage area is being pulled into the heating and cooling system. Then the heating and cooling system must heat or cool the outdoor air, not the conditioned air in the home. And this my friends is not good!

Your heating and cooling system is now responsible for heating and cooling conditioned air that it has conditioned in addition to outdoor air. This system will never keep you comfortable! So, check those HVAC units that are located in the garage. You never know what they have been subjected too in the past few weeks or months and may need to be repaired. Check them especially if you are having system performance problems or concerns.

Pets, bicycles, lawn mowers, cars and really any moving object can penetrate the old sheet rock casings for older systems. And penetrations are bad!

Call A.I.R. Plus if you need help with your system. We would love to help you!

Have a blessed day!
