Most Hayward and Bay Area homeowners aren’t aware that their HVAC system can be a common source of water damage. These systems produce condensation, which is essentially water. This water can potentially escape into your home, and the results can be disastrous. Mold and structural damage can result if the leak goes undetected, which means costly repairs.
Unfortunately, most homeowners cannot detect potential water damage until it’s already gone too far. Additionally, if mold does become introduced into your HVAC system and spread throughout your home, it could lead to dangerous health issues for you and your family. Mold is also extremely difficult for the average person to remove, as there is no safe or practical way to accomplish the task. Applying an antifungal and wiping areas which are visible may seem like a good thing to do, but can in fact spread the risk.
Once you hear water dripping or see water coming from a wall but cannot determine its source, it may be damage caused by your HVAC system.
