I've hired Billy Aircon's Services two times during my stay here in Singapore, the first time was truthfully brought about because of their really good prices. Their response took about a normal wait time, I can't sugarcoat it and say they were lightning fast at responses because I would like to be truthful. The staff, both times, were hardworking and friendly, and finished the job fast and efficiently. The second time was the most notable because one of the staff pointed out and helpfully explained to me that one of the acs needed a chemical cleaning, while I did have to pay a bit more, it was worth it, they did the chemical cleaning, washed out the machine outside my window (I'm afraid I don't know what it's called) and even cleaned up the water on the floor before they left. Wish I had asked for their names so I could thank them publicly here. Billy Aircon's services were truly professional and efficient, I'll not hesitate to hire them again and will recommend them to friends.read more

When I got the call from their service technician on the condition of my aircon and what needed to be done, my first impression was there are out to get your money, instead I told them what I wanted to do. They Listened and complied. My hubby was around to witness the condition of the aircon and immediately change the initial decision. We have engaged a different vendor before, it has never been as thorough as the work done by Billy Aircon technicians. Can sense the passion of the technicians as they carried out their duties!

Our Guarantee

  • 100% solve all your air conditioning problems.
  • Guarantee follow up services within 7 days.
  • Free 90 days workmanship warranty.

 

Now let’s dive in more about aircon leaking here…

1. A Clogged Drain Line

The most common reason for air conditioners to leak water is a clogged drain line.

As the name suggests, the drain line is the pipe that links the overflow pan to the outside or the drainpipe depending on the setup of your air conditioner.

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

There are a few reasons why this line might become clogged and a few things that you can do to remedy this.

The first step that you need to take is to look at where the water is coming from.

  • If the water leak is from the front of your unit, it is possible that the unit was not installed correctly.This is a problem that many people face with window air conditioners which tilt to the front when they are installed incorrectly. In these cases, the unit will need to be taken out and installed correctly to stop the leak.
  • If the water is not coming from the front, you should check the tubing leading from the unit for any debris and dirt. If you feel any resistance in the tubes, you should clear the blockage so the water can move freely.It is important to note that many modern units will have an emergency shutoff feature which will protect the device when there is a clog in the drain line.
  • If your unit has suddenly turned off for no reason, you should look at the drain line.

2. The Overflow Pan Is Damaged

While you are checking the drain line, you should also look at the overflow pan in your unit.

follow-up-7-days

This pan is located underneath the unit and could be the cause of your water leaks.

When this pan is damaged, the water will spill out onto the floor.

When inspecting the pan, you should look at each corner carefully. You should also look along the edges for any holes, cracks or notches. Any of these issues will allow water to flow from the pan to your floor.

Small holes in the pan can be easily fixed with epoxy, but you might want to replace the entire pan for the best and longest lasting results.

3. The Air Filter Is Dirty

There are many people who do not realise that a dirty air filter can cause a water leak.

The air filter in your air conditioner will need to be changed regularly and leaving a filter for too long will impede the air flow in the unit.

When this happens, the air around the evaporator coils will become too cold and this will cause the coils to freeze over.

When the coils freeze, ice will form inside the unit. The heat from the outside air will then cause the ice to melt and this will lead to a leak.

It is important to note that a dirty air filter is not the only reason why your coils might freeze, but it is the most common.

Air conditioner filters will generally last 1 to 2 months before they should be replaced.

When you have a water leak, you should check your filters and see if they are dirty.

You should also consider when the last time they were changed was and replace them if you are unsure about this. Changing your filter could prevent a lot of problems with your unit that you will want to avoid.

4. Incorrect Installation

If your air conditioner is new, the drain lines and filters will generally not be the cause of the water leak. Incorrect installation could be to blame for your sudden water problem.

There are a number of points that you should consider regarding the installation that could cause water to leak from the unit.

The first point that you need to look at is whether or not the air conditioner is on a flat surface.

When the unit is not level, the water in the overflow pan will leak and the drain line will not work correctly. If the unit is not level, you should look at adjusting it or getting the person who installed it to adjust it.

If you have a window air conditioner, you should consider if the seals that secure the unit to the window are loose.

When the seals are not done correctly, the warm air from outside will meet the cold air from the condenser. This will cause condensation and will eventually cause a water leak.

If you are handy enough, you will be able to fix these seals yourself or you will need to contact the installer.

5. A Broken Pump

When your air conditioner has a broken pump, the water from the overflow pan will not be drawn into the drain line. This will cause the pan to overflow and the excess water to leak onto the floor.

You will only be able to determine if this is the problem after you have determined that the drain line is clear of any blockages.

To test if you have a broken pump, you will need to pour some water into the overflow pan.

If the water does not drain, the pump could be the cause. If you have a broken pump, you will need to call a professional to assess the pump and replace it.

When you have water leaking from your air conditioner, there are a number of causes that you need to investigate.

The most common cause will be a blocked drain line or a dirty filter. These problems can be dealt with easily, but if the pump is broken you will have to call a professional.

6. Leakage in The Condenser Coil

The condenser unit of your air conditioner is usually located outside of your house.

The unit comprises of a blower fan, the compressor, and the condenser coil.

This outdoor unit is more likely than the indoor unit to accumulate dust, dirt, and grime, and may even get damaged due to any outside particle getting stuck inside the condenser.

Any leakage in the condenser coil and aircon pipe are also common.

If you notice any leaks in the condenser coil, pipe leaking or leaking water in front part, you should immediately seek professional help for aircon servicing in Singapore.

However, some leaks could be hidden or too minor to provide any visual sign.

If you suspect any leakage in the condenser coil, you can perform a simple test at home to be sure about whether the coil is leaking.

5 Steps to Take to Determine if the Aircon Condenser Coil is Leaking

Ideally, you should clean your air conditioner blower and condenser coil every few months and check for any leakage in it as well.

If you notice any severe damage in the coil, you should get it replaced by professionals.

However, before you contact professional aircon service, you can take the following steps to determine if the coil is leaking.

A. Unplug the air conditioner

The first thing to do is to turn off the Aircon and unplug it. You may need to turn off the circuit breaker or fuse controlling the power supply to the Aircon.

B. Remove the back of the outdoor unit

You need to use a screwdriver to take the screws off from the back of condenser unit located outside of your home.

Now pull off the back vent, so that you can view the inside of the unit.

C. Clean the inside compartment

The next step is to clean the inside of the aircon unit with a brush.

If you want to clean hard-to-reach parts of the aircon, you should use a blower or a vacuum cleaner.

Once you clean the outdoor unit inside out, you should be able to see through the condenser coil connected to blower assembly.

In general, you’ll find the blower assembly the edges of the outdoor unit.

You can use a flashlight to check for any leakage in the condenser coils.

D. Perform the test

Now you need to roll a dry tissue paper and run it through the condenser coils.

After some time, pull the paper out and check it for any traces of liquid.

If you notice that the dry paper has soaked in any liquid, you can consider this a clear sign of leakage from your condenser coil.

E. Attach the aircon parts in their former position

Reattach the back vent with screws.

You will need to use the screwdriver again for the job. Keep the Aircon unplugged till an expert technician comes and checks it.Call  9456 0875 if you need our help
