Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking Water Outside?
You may have noticed your Air Conditioner leaking water outside, espcially over the last couple of months. Findina a puddle of water underneath your AC’s conditioner unit might be alarming, but understanding when an air conditioner leaking water is normaland when it could not be the difference normal operation and ac repairs.
How Much Water Leaking Should I Expect from My AC ?
the amount of condensation you can except from your air conditioner depends on a few things:
-What is the a/c temprature setting.
-what is ther outside temprature setting
-what is the humidity percentage
Small amounts of condensation near the drain pipe is normal- perticularly on exteremly hot or humid days. Likewise, if a small puddle is found underneath your air conditioner’s condenser unit, this is most likely a result of your until normal operation.
How much water is too much?
Don’t believe the manufacturer’s brochures. if the brochure says 4 liters per hour then we can multiply this figure by 3.The reason is for every degree over 26degrees and an extra of 10% humidity allows an increase of 20% as a basic rule of thumb so lots of water!!!
What Causes My Air Conditioner to Leak Water ?
There could be several factors causing your conditioner to leak water, including :
- Darty air filters – when your AC air filter is dirty, partially blocked, or your air conditioner’s evaporator colls are more likely to freeze up, causing excess water to over spill from the drain pan.
- Broken condensate pan – depending on the age of your AC unit, your condensate pan may rust and crack or split over time, causing water to leak from your air conditioner.
- Blockage in the drain pipe – the water in your air conditioner travels to the drain pan via a complex system of drain pipes. If the drain pipe is blocked. It could cause water to leak from your AC.
- Improper installation – if your air conditioner is relatively new and leaks a lot of water it is most likely due to an installation issue. Improper sizing or an incorrectly installed drainage pan can all lead to water leaking from your air conditioner.
