Why is Water Leaking from AC Unit

Water leaking from a residential AC unit can be caused by a few different things. The most common cause is a clogged condensate drain line. This happens when dirt, dust, or other debris accumulates in the condensate line and blocks the flow of water out of the unit. This blockage can eventually lead to water overflowing from the drain pan and spilling out onto the floor. A second cause could be an evaporator coil that has iced up due to low air flow across the coil, which prevents it from draining properly. A third possibility could be a faulty condensate pump that is not pumping water out of the system properly. Finally, if your AC unit is located outdoors, severe storms or extreme weather conditions can cause water to leak into the system.

If you suspect your AC unit is leaking water, it’s important to call us immediately to diagnose and repair the issue before any further damage occurs. In some cases, repairing the clogged drain line or replacing a faulty part may solve the problem. It’s also important to inspect your home regularly for any signs of moisture accumulation around your indoor unit so you can catch any potential problems early on and make sure you always have comfortable indoor temperatures!
