My air conditioning vent downstairs is leaking water

My vent was leaking water when we pulled it off there was no water in the duct. is there any way this can be coming from the central a/c unit. i remember a neighbor in our tract home had a water leak as a result of the air conditioner in the kitchen same as we have. how could this be ocurring if we have one, and where can we check other than the attic that looks dry...the leak only occurred at night time when we run the air and when my so takes a shower in the upstairs bathroom. how can we as homeowners tell what it is?

Toilet upstairs sometimes drains when the one downstairs is flushed.


It could be a blocked vent.when the downstairs toilet flushes it draws air down the drain with the wastewater. The vent is suppose to supply air to make up for this. If the vent is blocked or there is no vent. Air is drawn from the easiest place ,in this case through the upstairs toilet,drawing the water out of the toilet trap with it. In northern climates the vents sometimes frost shut causing the problem you describe. Hope this helps.

I'm getting condensation leakage from the vents in the roof. This is on a ducted system, and it's leaking from the two vents closest to the main blower unit up in the ceiling. It's very high humidity here...


Two things may need to be done here, one is to insulate the vents in the high humidity/temperature area to isolate them from these high conditions. The second would to install a drain pan under the system to catch any condensation and drain it away.

Air conditioner is running outside. blowing cool air to downstairs vents, upstairs vents not getting any air at all.


Check the A-coil in the furnace to see if it is iced up. That will cause a poor airflow condition. If that is it you will have to find the cause of the iced coils. Eric

Air conditioning duct doors operating poorly


It could be a vacuum hose leak. With the car running listen for hissing sound either under the dash or under the hood. Or if the car has electric actuators on it one of them may have failed and stuck in place.

Water is leaking from my downstairs air conditioning vent


I seriously doubt it's the AC. It may be the draing in the upstairs shower, If it's a water line it is a very small leak and is probably puddling in you ceiling. if not nbeing absorbed. Best thing is contact your homeowners insurance because you are going to not only have a plumber to deal with , but a mols issue as well. Sorry, good luck.

Heating blowing coo air downstairs and warm upstairs?


Some of this depends on where the air handler/furnace is located. Most often in two story houses, it's in the attic upstairs, or in a closet upstairs. A duct routes air from the furnace to the downstairs supply duct, so it is a distance from the air handler.
When the unit first initiates a heating cycle, that duct is going to be full of cool air, and the duct itself will be cool. So the furnace has to run long enough to push the cool air out, as well as warm the duct up, before your going to feel warm air at the registers downstairs.

Keep in mind, heat rises. And, your thermostat only monitors the immediate area where it's located. In your case, upstairs.
Two story houses are problematic because of this. And one way around it is to have a damper system installed that distributes the air upstairs or downstairs based on a thermostat located in those spaces. There would be 2 dampers, and 2 thermostats (one upstairs, one downstairs). Each stat would control a damper, and the call for heat or cooling.

Let me know if you would like to consider a system like this, and I can point you to components to use. I've put several system like this in.
