Question: Mold is growing in my AC unit. How can I prevent mold in my AC?
Answer: To prevent mold in the AC unit, check your AC drip pans once a week. Check the drain line for debris, rust, mold, and dirt causing the pipe to be clogged. If the drain line is disconnected, the drip pan can overflow. The issue can be the condensate pump itself. Because the pump continually contains liquid, rust or mildew can develop inside the system, allowing it to overflow and clog up.
What You Can Do
Check your AC unit weekly to clean out the drain line and wipe down condensation.
