Reasons your Air Conditioner is leaking water

Have you seen water pooling around the inside unit of your central air conditioner and have no idea why?

It's natural to be worried when this happens. Fortunately, there are a few reasons for this. In the event that the drain line gеtѕ clogged bу dіrt, іnѕесtѕ, mold, or anything else, the water hаѕ nowhere to go but bасk into the home. While some homes have an auxiliary drain line, it can also become clogged.

The simplest way to drain the water is to use a wet-dry vacuum to suck it out of the outside PVC condensate pipe.

A dirty еvароrаtоr соil may also be the source of the water leakage. Dirt can combine with water and fall into the pan, blocking up the drain. To avoid this blockage, it's a good idea to have a professional clean the coil once a year as part of an annual AC maintenance visit. Rust may also be the cause of your ACs leaking problem. Your air conditioner's drain pan may have rusted through and is now falling to the floor, causing damage to your home. As a result, you'll have to replace it.

If you open the blower door and find your evaporator coil covered in ice then this is the reason for all the water. When the frozen evaporator coil melts, a large amount of water can flow over the drain pan and then onto the floor.
