This morning I was sitting at my desk typing up some material requisitions and all of a sudden water started pouring out of the vent above my desk, and my bosses desk.  It was pouring.  He threw his monitors and laptop off his desk, I dragged my stuff out of the way, grabbed a trash can and shoved it under the water.  Caught about 4 gallons of water, not including what had already poured on the floor and desk tops! 

The office building, is really 3 double wide trailers bolted together.  So there are 3 of those hvac units mounted on the ends, just so happens our office wall is the mounting point.  We pulled the cover, and the A coil was frozen solid, and the ice had been melting off, and there must of been ice built up and was acting as a dam.  It broke free and allowed the water to roll back out of our vent.  Since ours was first in line, we got the water.

 

What a mess!  Not something you expect to happen!

Many times AC is forgotten, and it collects dust/dirt in coils and on piping, then that same dirt plugs up the drain pans.  I was around when one in True Value hardware I worked at did that, all over carpet too. Ended up taking much of tin off and WOW, what gunk in there to clean out. This was inside and tall ceiling one. Ladders and a big tarp for that mess!!  You might really need to powerwash as much as you can up on a roof??

I called the on house ac specialist. He was supposed to be there this afternoon. Not sure if he ever showed up. I just chipped off the ice and cleaned up the mess.

" Rain drops , it looked like rain drops falling from my vents" ..... sorry just had to do that. Maybe someone needs to change the air filters and or clean the coils or check to see if they are low on refrigerant.  Sorry to hear that but at least you had an eventful day.                                                                       Roger

Building maintenance doesn't happen till something breaks. The filters were clean but soaking wet.

I imagine it will still be broke tomorrow. But I'll be underground doing jobs for the next 3 days so my boss can enjoy the heat in there
