Florida has reported one of the hottest summers on record. This means that your AC Unit has been working at maximum capacity and during this time it is common to see a buildup of dirt and dust in your AC drain line. Every HVAC/AC Unit naturally produces condensation during the process of removing heat from your home or office. This condensation or water is drained outside through a series of PVC piping. It is here inside the piping that you will find an accumulation of dust and dirt overtime. If your Air Conditioning Unit is leaking water it could be due to a pipe that needs cleaning. AC Units that are maintained and serviced on a regular basis, will run more efficiently and will not be likely to experience leaks due to blockage in the piping from dirt that causes the drain pan in the AC Unit to overflow.

Prevent AC Unit Leakage
In order to protect your home or office from flood/water damage, most Air Conditioning Units leaking water can be prevented by using a “safety float switch”.
What is a Safety Float Switch?
Float switches are an inexpensive and cost effective way to detect clogged condensate drains in your A/C (air conditioning) unit before flooding occurs in your home. Float switches use magnets to open or close a circuit as water levels fall or rise. Having a float switch installed on your A/C system will prevent build-up and bacteria growth that often accompanies pooling water, while also ensuring your system is compliant with the Florida Building Code requirements.
Benefits of a Safety Float Switch
- Prevent costly water damage
- Avoid mold, algae and other damaging microbial growth
- Protects your AC unit and allows it to perform more efficiently
- Serves as a warning indicator that pipes need to be cleaned
- Switches are low cost and are part of most annual maintenance service plans
In Florida, according to the state building code every unit must be equipped with a float switch. This simple, low-cost device could represent a huge cost savings not just in flood/water damage costs but also by indicating when pipes are backed up with bacterial growth which if left unchecked can also cause air pollution and mold.
