Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking?

A leak is the last thing any homeowner wants to find in their home—and a leak that springs from your air conditioner can be particularly costly. So what’s going on with your leaking AC, and where is that puddle coming from? Keep reading to learn more.

Reasons Why Air Conditioners Leak

There are a few reasons why air conditioners start to leak:

Indoor/Outdoor – Refrigerant Leak

A refrigerant leak can lead to many problems for your air conditioner, including reduced efficiency, poor performance, frozen coils, and breakdowns. It’s important that you have a trained professional repair a refrigerant leak and correctly recharge your refrigerant levels.

Indoor – Frozen Coils

There are many reasons why your AC could have frozen coils, including refrigerant leaks, a low temperature, blocked airflow, and more. As your coils defrost, they may cause leaking and puddles to appear below your inside unit.

Indoor – Clogged Condensate Pan

The name of the condensate pan basically gives away its purpose—it’s designed to drain water that drips down as it condenses on the refrigerant tubes in your indoor unit. If this gets clogged, it can overflow and leak onto the floor. If you’re unable to remove the clog yourself, give the pros at Arctic Air Conditioning a call, and we can fix this for you—as well as check for any other technical issues!

Indoor – Worn Out Drain Line

Regular wear and tear on your drain line can lead to leaking—most likely, this will not be repairable, but one of our professionals can help you out with a replacement.
