1. Clogged Condensate Drain Line
Over time, the condensate drain line can become clogged with dust, debris, and mold. This is the leading cause of water leaking inside your home. When water can’t get past the drain line it can only go back into the AC unit and often leaks onto the floor damaging everything around the leak. If your drain line is clogged you should first look for the clog to see if it can be removed. There are a few things you can try before calling a professional HVAC technician.

2. Damaged Drain Pan
Water can also leak from your air conditioner’s drain pan. This is more common in older units where the drain pan has been damaged or rusted. Water usually rests in the drain pan, but excess water can cause damage which results in holes where water can leak through.
3. Refrigerant Leak
When your refrigerant is leaking it causes your evaporator coil to freeze. As the water begins to melt it will drip into the drain pan and eventually overflow onto the floor. Depending on how severe the leak is you will have to contact a professional HVAC technician as soon as possible since this could lead to your whole system shutting down or blowing out warm air through vents.
