One Minute Maintenance: How to prevent AC leaks

Phil Mathews, owner of Mathews Heating and Air, shows us how to complete proper monthly maintenance on your air conditioner by flushing the drain pipe with bleach and warm water and making sure your drain pipe is not buried. This maintenance, along with changing your ac filter monthly, is required for proper HVAC function.

Required HVAC monthly maintenance straight from the Professionals:

  • Find your outside drain pipe and make sure it is not blocked by debris or other obstructions/
  • Find the bleach port in your inside HVAC system.
  • Turn your a/c off using the thermostat before adding bleach or working with your HVAC system.
  • Pour a 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of bleach and follow with 2 cups of warm water into the port.
  • For systems with safety switches, Remove the safety switch, Dry the inside out using a cloth, and then pour bleach and water into port.
