Prevent A/C Water Damage in Your Provincetown Home

A/C unit leak causing water damage Keeping your A/C unit at a lower more constant temperature may help to prevent water damage in your home.

So, you’ve done everything right to prevent water damage in your home. The gutters are clear, your water pressure is fine, you know where every water shutoff valve is, and every possible leak has been taken note of and taken care of. Nothing is worse than when seemingly every precaution is taken to prevent water damage, but the A/C unit decides to leak and ruin your floors/walls. In this Cape Cod summer heat, the last thing on a homeowner’s mind is turning OFF the A/C. However, taking care of your air conditioner will not only keep you cool, but it’ll also keep your home water damage-free.

Realize that air conditioners have different temperature and coolness settings for a reason. Many homeowners put their units on full blast on the lowest temperature without even thinking about it. Don’t just crank the A/C and forget it. Doing so WILL damage the unit, cause leaks, make it unusable for future summers and waste electricity. Find the optimal setting on the A/C for your living space. Keep track of the room temp, find a comfortable setting that’s lower than full power and you’ll be cool and free from water damage for summers to come.
