Why Is My Air Conditioner Leaking Water?

May 21st, 2018

AC-technicianIf you know anything about the way that a refrigerant-based air conditioning system operates, then you know your system uses the evaporation of refrigerant in order to remove heat from the air in your home. That refrigerant is condensed outdoors, releasing its heat, before repeating the cycle until desired temperatures are met. At no point in the process does water come into play. So what the heck is going on when your air conditioner starts to leak water?

Well, it’s not really a water leak in the way that a water heater may spring one. No, that does not mean that the water surrounding the unit is a figment of your imagination.

So read on, learn what could be behind this mysterious phenomenon, and whether it means that you need air conditioning repair in Tampa, FL or not.
