Water may leak inside your home if the drain becomes clogged, the evaporator coils freeze or if the pipes are not connected properly. Here’s a look at how to prevent HVAC water damage:

- Maintain the condensation drain line.
- When your AC unit is running, check the condensation line opening to make sure you see water flowing to the drain. - Make sure that the main drain line and emergency drain line are properly connected and installed.
