Air Conditioning Unit Causing Water Intrusion in Palm Springs Home?
Have you checked your air conditioner unit for signs of water intrusion? This is an often overlooked area where rain can enter a home and cause damage. Our local team in Palm Springs is on call to respond to water damage emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Palm Springs. Here are some helpful tips from the Institute of Business and Home Safety for protecting your home from heavy rain:
Check wall air conditioners
If the air conditioning unit has an internal drain, make sure the pipe size is adequate and water is running and flowing freely in order to handle a high volume of water.
Caulking of Air Conditioning Unit Sleeve: Look for any gaps, cracks, or other damage that indicates improper caulking around the edge of the sleeve to the exterior of the building. This increases vulnerability to water entry.
Orientation: Tilting the air conditioning unit sleeves slightly (two degrees) towards the exterior wall can significantly reduce the water’s entry.
Weather Stripping: Proper weather stripping between the air conditioning unit and the sleeve can reduce the water from entering.
