Why Is My Air Conditioning Unit Spitting Water? Causes and Solutions

Water leaking from the air conditioner drips from the cooler.

You may wonder why your AC unit is spitting water and whether it means something serious is wrong. If you find yourself frequently mopping up indoor puddles around your air conditioner, you should look into the cause to see if you need professional AC unit repair. It’s important not to let this situation get worse to prevent damage to your home’s floors and to your AC system.

There are a few common reasons for AC water leakage. They include faulty AC installation, clogged drainage lines, leaking evaporator coils, plugged air filters, low refrigerant levels, frozen evaporator coils, or a drain pan issue. A qualified technician can troubleshoot the problem and restore your air conditioner to normal operation.
