How does AC leak water?

AC is designed to dispose of this condensed water through an outdoor drainage system, when something goes wrong with this built-in drainage system then the water starts leaking into your home.
Reasons for faulty condensate system:
There could be numerous reasons causing a water leak in an air conditioner such as.
- The drip tray is off-center, cracked or improperly angled.
- The condensate drain is clogged as a result of particles in the air, resulting in drip tray overflow.
- If you live in a location with high humidity and hot temperature conditions, or if you use your HVAC system frequently, you may require a condensate pump to remove the surplus water.
- Ice is accumulating around the evaporator coil, causing it to melt too rapidly, an issue that might be caused by a variety of factors.
Don ‘t use your air conditioner if it’s causing a problem that could do major damage to the air conditioner and to your house too. You can clear out a clogged condensate drain on your own but it’s better let an expert technician handle the matter.
