The heat has arrived! Therefore, air conditioners in the Wilmington NC area are working hard. While your air conditioner runs it’s producing excess water which you’ll notice outside where your drain line exits your home.
However, what happens if the drain line gets clogged? Not only is it going to affect how your AC system runs but additionally the backed-up water could cause water damage to your home. This article will explain how an EZ trap float switch will help prevent water leaks.
What Does the EZ Trap Do?
If you haven’t monitored the drain line in a while, which we know life is busy, it’ll still prevent water leaks. This is because there is a float switch. If a clog does form, when filled with water the float will signal the system to switch off. This will prevent water from overflowing the drain pan.
Once the EZ Trap is clear of the clog simply turn your HVAC system back on. Believe us you’ll be happy to feel that cool air again. EZ Traps are an easy way to prevent very costly water damage. Besides monitoring the EZ Trap; annual maintenance will help prevent drain line clogs as well.
EZ Trap Installation and Cleaning
An EZ trap is installed directly on the drain line. The clear tubing will allow you to see a clog or buildup starting. It’s easy to clean and even comes with a brush. By keeping an eye on the EZ Trap you can avoid a clog from forming.
If your system is currently without an EZ Trap what are you waiting for? Be proactive and prevent water leakage from your HVAC system. During a service call, a technician can add an EZ Trap to your heating and cooling system. Or call to schedule a technician to come and install one.
