AC condensate drain lines are the perfect breeding ground for algae and mold. Over time, build-up of algae and mold create a sludge that will eventually block the condensation and moisture that needs to be let out of the AC system.
But My AC Runs Great
The AC itself is not the problem. Your condensate drain line could be fully clogged and you would never know until you see a leak. Clogged drain lines do not effect the air conditioner itself. That’s why it is so important to clean the condensate drain line. And as your 10 year old air conditioner is running great, the condensate drain line has never been clean. Besides, those drain lines are often tough to get to. It might be in an attic or basement. Or, it might be practically buried under bushes on the side of the house. Hard to find, let alone clean.
Cleaning the AC drain line does not have to be difficult. But, it does have to be done and should be done every six months. It’s just one of those home maintenance tasks that nobody enjoys doing, but so glad it’s done. Really, you need to make sure you clean it. Doing so will save you money in the end because a leak could seriously cause damage to your home. There are many DIY ways to clean the AC condensate drain line. You need to at least be doing that. But we think our ACMeds unit is the easiest way to keep your drain line clean with one touch of a button twice a year. It just doesn’t get easier than that.
