Water coming out of your
air conditioner isn’t normal and should never be ignored. Dripping water does not
only signify a problem with your air conditioner, it is also a hazard
to your entire home. Water may cause structural damage to your house and
cause mold or other harmful bacteria to grow. If you’re experiencing
water coming from your AC, it may be one of these problems.
Clogged Drain Line
Your system naturally makes condensation while cooling your home. This
condensation is collected in a drip pan and taken out of your house through
a drainline. Occasionally, this line can get clogged from dirt, algae
or other debris. In this case, the drip pan overflows and water comes
through the vents.
One of the most common causes of water coming out of your AC is a broken
condenser pump. Your air conditioner needs to pump out all of the condensation
it creates. When the pump is broken, it is unable to do this and the drip
pan starts to overflow. If you believe this is the case, it’s a
good idea to have a professional take a look at your system.
The day your
AC is installed in the most important day in your system’s life. If the installation
is not done properly, you can face all kinds of problems down the road.
One of those problems is water leaks. If your AC is not level, water can
start to pool, and eventually leak. This is a very serious problem with
your system, and will require an expert technician to resolve it.
Either due to low refrigerant levels or poor airflow, your coils can become
frozen. After your home is cooled and your system automatically shuts
off, this ice starts to melt. Before you know it, you have a large amount
of water leaking from your system. While fixing an airflow problems may
be as simple as changing the filter, you will need a professional to replenish
your refrigerant levels.
