Understanding Why There Is Water in Your AC
You are probably wondering why there is water in your AC unit in the first place.
The fact is that the inside AC unit has an incredibly cold evaporator coil, which cools the air flowing over it. When air strikes the coil, the moisture in the air condenses on the coil. Water forms and then falls into the drain pan before coming out the condensate drain line. You can find the drain line exit point by looking for a PVC pipe near the outside component of your AC unit.
Understanding Why the Water is Leaking
There are many reasons why water could be leaking from your AC unit and damaging your home and possessions! However, the most common cause of the problem is a clogged drain line. Check out our Del-Air blog on the subject for tips on how you can unclog it yourself. If the drain line isn’t clogged, the leak could be the result of a frozen evaporator coil, disconnected drain line, broken condensate pump, or a cracked or rusted condensate drain pan.
