Why Is Your AC Leaking Water?

Summer is here, and your air conditioner works overtime to keep your home cool. But what happens when you notice water leaking from your AC? Don’t panic. There are a few common reasons for this issue, and most of them are easy to fix. Let Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. be your go-to for air conditioning repair in Butler.

Common Causes of AC Water Leaks

1. Clogged Condensate Drain Line

A clogged condensate drain line is a frequent culprit. Over time, dirt and debris can build up and block the line. This causes water to back up and leak out of your AC unit. Regular maintenance helps prevent this problem. We recommend scheduling a routine check-up to keep your drain lines clear.

2. Dirty Air Filters

Dirty air filters can also lead to water leaks. When air filters are dirty, airflow is restricted. This can cause the evaporator coil to freeze. When it melts, the excess water drips and can cause leaks. To avoid this, change your air filters regularly.

3. Low Refrigerant Levels

Low refrigerant levels can cause water leaks, too. When refrigerant is low, pressure in the AC system drops. This can cause the evaporator coil to freeze. As the coil thaws, it drips water. Low refrigerant usually means there’s a leak, which needs professional attention.

4. Improper Installation

Improper installation can also lead to leaks. An AC unit that is not the right size or incorrectly installed can cause various issues, including water leaks. Always choose certified HVAC technicians for installation. They can ensure the unit is properly sized and installed correctly.
