Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking Water?

We may be closing in on the end of summer, but the temperature is still staying hot. The grass is still green and everyone is still enjoying the great outdoors before sweater weather kicks in. Things are going great, but lately, you’ve been thinking maybe you should be concerned. You noticed that your air conditioner is leaking water, and that can’t be right, can it? If you find yourself asking this question then you’ve come to the right place. 


Today United Water Restoration Group of Port St. Lucie would like to talk about reasons why people find their air conditioners leaking water and the differences between normal expectations and cause for concern.


Condensation vs Concern

If you see water around your air conditioner, stop and assess the situation before you panic. Is the water only trace amounts, or is it a large amount that is damaging your property? Is the water normally only a little bit but today it seems like it’s literally flowing from the unit? 


Under normal operations, your air conditioner leaking water isn’t a cause for concern. As a result of condensation, your air conditioner is going to leak water during operation, and the hotter the day the more it’s going to leak.


However, if your air conditioner is leaking an amount of water beyond what you normally see or it’s leaking enough that it’s actively causing damage, there is an underlying issue. It could be everything from a clogged air filter to clogged drainage, and even a lack of freon. With most modern air conditioner units, these problems can be addressed except in matters of extreme mechanical failure.
