Window unit airconditioner drips water!

I have a window unit airconditioner that is about 3 years old. I always maintenance it have it set on energysaver. I have to admit that I always have it running, even in the winter sometimes.

It works great but I noticed that it recently started dripping in the back. It drips to the ground, which is fine but I am wondering why all of a sudden it started doing that. It has been dripping more and more with a mud puddle right underneath it.

Should I be concerned? Is this normal. Do I need to get it repaired?
Thanks!

It is normal for it to drip. The drain hole might be stopped up and the water had to reach another level before it started to dreip. Check the drain hole and make shureit isn't clogged. If you see a little buton like piece, see if it can be removed.

If the old unit was dripping condensate into the house, it was installed incorrectly. The replacement unit may have been installed correctly so the condensate drains outside.

When the airconditioner is on cool.Water comes from the airconditioner inside and dripping on the floor.


If it's a car air conditioner, your condensate drain line is clogged. If it's a home window unit, it needs to be tilted outward more. The downward tilt should be no less than 1/4" per foot. If your unit is 18" from the window to the back of the unit, the back should be 3/8" lower that at the window....minimum.

Water spilled from window air conditioner while moving it


it is only condinsation, no need to be worried, it most likely works like your refridgerator, the condinsation gathers in a pan, then evaperation takes care of the water naturally. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Air condition cleaning


hi! there,
if your unit is almost five years from now,its more convenient to have a maintenance schedule every two to three time a year,if this a windows type,cleaning of ac unit mostly the eveporator and condenser should free from dust,upon installing,the a/c unit should be eleveted down on condenser,the tray should have a drain with hose to drip the water outside your room,so that water will not leak on your light,see this may cause electrical fault resulted on burning.have always clean the filter.try to inform the maintenance crew to elevate the condenser portion down gradually so that water will drip outside the room.have anice day,don't forget get to rate me,and thank's a lot.
