Why Is My AC Leaking Water?

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

AC-toolsWhat would you do if you were passing by your indoor AC unit and wound up with soaking wet feet? You’d probably be pretty confused, right? After all, air conditioners (with the exception of evaporative coolers, which are not really used around here) don’t have a water supply piped into them. Why would they, when they don’t require the use of water at any point in their operation? So does that mean that you’re imagining things?

Well, no. The fact is that you may well have water spilling out of your air conditioner. It is not really a leak in the sense that you may expect, though.

Just keep reading, and learn more about why your air conditioner may (appear to) be leaking water. Let us know if you notice any such problems in your home.
