Why Does My Air Conditioner Leak Water

Is your air conditioner leaking water? This is one of the most common A/C problems that homeowners experience. In fact, about 90% of all central-air service calls are related to a leaking air conditioner! Here are a few of the most common reasons why your air conditioner is leaking water.

Reason #1: Your Air Conditioner Filter is Clogged

When was the last time you changed the air filter in your HVAC system? You should check your air filter once a month, and replace or clean it about every three months. This will help ensure that air is flowing freely through your home and that cool air is being properly distributed.

Reason #2: The Condensate Line is Clogged

Your condensate line is designed to drain water into an overflow pan. When this line is clogged, water will back up and flood the overflow pan. This can also cause your A/C to automatically shut down.

Reason #3: The Overflow Pan is Damaged

If the overflow pan has a leak, this will also cause water to leak from your air conditioner. Check your overflow pan for small holes and cracks.
