Ceiling leak turns out to be A/C leak

Ceiling leak turns out to be A/C leak

It rained last week really hard.

That morning I woke up and noticed that my roof was leaking.

There was a lot of water on the carpet in the hallway and I could see water dripping from the ceiling. I got a pan to collect the water and then I immediately called out a roofer. I had to wait almost a week before the roofers came out. The strange thing is that the roof kept leaking even though it wasn’t raining. When the roofers came out I found out why. They explained that it is not my roof that is leaking. They said that the leak appears to be coming from my air conditioner. They said that the water is dripping through the ductwork in the ceiling. So then I called up an HVAC supplier. I thought I would have to wait another week for the HVAC technicians to come out. That did not turn out to be the case. They showed up less than 24 hours after I called them. They fixed the drip pipe in my HVAC system and they sealed my ductwork. They also insulated my ductwork to help it work better. So the dripping has finally stopped. Now I just need to get my ceiling repaired and have someone check for mold. I really wish I had known it was my air conditioner a week ago when this leak started. I could have gotten it fixed much faster and then I wouldn’t be worrying about mold right now. I had just thought that a leaving ceiling meant that the roof was leaking. Apparently that is not always the case.
