So, one day you wake up and realize your AC is leaking water. What’s next? Air conditioning issues can be tricky to pinpoint, but Lee’s Air is here to breakdown AC leaks into the simplest, most effective way.

Here are the top reasons why your AC is producing excess water.

1. Your drain line is clogged.

Within every AC unit, there is a drain line that’s used to properly expel water. When the drain line becomes clogged, water is unable to drain. The build-up causes a slow leak that can potentially be dangerous.

2. Your evaporator coil is frozen.

What happens to ice when it’s warmed? That’s right, it melts! Similar to an ice cube, your frozen coil can start to drip as the temperature increases. You can help prevent this situation by changing your air filters in a timely manner.

3. Your AC is old.

If you’ve had your AC system for more than 10-12 years, it might be time to replace it. Worn-out units produce leaks and other issues more often than well-maintained air conditioners.

4. Your AC was improperly installed.

Another reason you may be experiencing leaks is that your unit might’ve been installed incorrectly. This can cause an abundance of problems, making your AC a day-to-day inconvenience.

5. Your drain pan is defective.

Your drain pan can become faulty due to age, cracks or other forms of decay. This causes a direct leak and potential overflow.
