You are most likely low on freon. This would cause the system to not cool. It will also cause the indoor coil to freeze up with ice, then when the ice melts, it doesn't run down the designated path and drips outside of the unit. This will require an HVAC tech to fix.

2002 cadillac saville the air filter is wet with coolant why?


A wet air filter indicates a problem within the cooling system which should be addressed as soon as possible before it gets worse or leads to other system failures. Running your cooling system with a wet air filter reduces energy efficiency.
Causes of a Wet Filter An air conditioner condenses humidity from the air on its evaporator coil. The cold refrigerant circulates through the coil, and as the warm air indoors contacts it, the refrigerant absorbs the heat changing it to a gas, then back to a liquid to facilitate the cooling process. Condensation on the coils drips into a pan to be drained away through a drainpipe. The drain pan can sometimes become clogged, and the filter can eventually absorb water.
Left wet, the filter will not be able to do its job, and reduced airflow, whether from water, results in less cooling and higher energy bills. Another result of a wet filter is the creation of an environment that is ideal for mold growth, which may even spread to other parts of your system and your home. If the system was not properly installed, this could also lead to the filter becoming wet.
Remedies When the air conditioning system is not draining properly, the condensate pan and drainpipe need to be cleaned. If the clog is obvious in either the pan or the drainpipe, go ahead and remove it. Otherwise you will need to contact your HVAC contractor who has tools to clean and clear more difficult or hard to reach clogs.
When the technician evaluates your cooling system, he or she will be able to assess how well it was installed and whether it needs to be modified. The technician can also recommend the intervals between checking the air filter and scheduling professional maintenance. Regular maintanence is one effective way to prevents clogs and system malfunctions.

Water dripping from air conditioning outlet when not switched on


When the A/C is not in use there is still condensation as your compressor will run at different times. Defrost is one, of course to cool the car is another. The condesation coming from that drain should be perfectly normal. My GMC Suburban drains all the time as well, and its usually because I leave my knob on the defrost setting even though the fan itself is off the compressor will still run as its hardwired to do so. If the compressor runs, the coil in your car will become cold resulting in the water you see. Hope this helps, thanks!

Water dropping on air conditioner


Water is dripping on your ac from a duct? Or is the unit it self leaking Are you sure you don't need a Professional Air Duct Inspection?

I have a sharp window AC unit, model af-609x. does it have a drain hole? there is no water coming out of it, but when we take it out of the window we get soaked from water somewhere inside the unitl


All window air conditioners will remove moisture from the air if there is any. Most window air conditioners collect this moisture in the bottom pan of the air conditioner and attempt to evaporate the moisture. The evaporation process works as follows: First, the water drips down off of the cold evaporator coils on the front of the unit. Then the water collects in the bottom of the air conditioner base, the "pan." If the air conditioner is installed properly it will be tilted slightly back.

The water then collects near the back of the unit. On some units, the fan blade used to cool the rear condensing coils will have a rim on the outside of the fins of the blade. This rim, or "slinger," will come close to touching the inside of the air conditioner pan when the fan is spinning. As the water collects in the pan and reaches the depth necessary for the fan ring to touch it, the ring will lift some of the water up and the fan will blow it at the condensing coils. Because the coils are warm, they will evaporate the moisture to the outside.

While this is happening it is normal to hear water splashing and sloshing around. As long as there is no water leaking inside the room that is being cooled there is no cause for concern.

Never drill into the bottom of and air conditioning unit to "let the water out."

I have a water leak near the front passenger sideof the motor its above the oil pan near a freeze plug but its not the freeze plug that i can see is there another freeze plug maybe behind the motor mount?


If the car is at operating temperature and the water is cool then it could just be air conditioning condensation.. Air conditioning units are usually located at the passenger side of the engine. If it is cool water it is nothing to worry about.

Tipically, a hot air furnce has exhaust and a cold air intake. My question is, why is one of them hooked to condensation pump that pumps water out?


Hello
In a forced hot air system you have a supply and a return.

Now with central air cond,you also have the same supply and return exept you also have an air conditioning coil that the return air goes through to be cooled,then it is blown out through the supply side to the vents in the home.

Since warm air or summer air contians water or humidity the cooling coil collects the moisture and sends it to a pan which when fills up is pumped out by a condensation pump.

Doesnt cool as well as have been told


There are allot of conditions that affect the cooling, outdoor humidity, if it is between 10 and 15% humidity, then it should work well, anything above 30% outdoor humidity, it won't work. That is just nature, but duct sizing or is it a single drop? Also if you are running it in a home, you will need to open windows to allow air to excape, or it will fill the home like a ballon and then you will have reduced air flow and no cooling.
Is the pad clean? Is the full pad wet? The water level needs to be set so that when it is turned off the water level is about 1/4" below the top of the of the pan overflow pipe.
I hope this gives you a basic idea.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

Do not know how to work/maintain swamp cooler


Make sure you have water to the unit, the water pump is on and the fan is working. No water=no cooling.

Furnace is leaking water


This is not a lot to go on.

I assume since you called it a furnace, you have hot air heat and central air conditioning. If so, the only way a furnace/AC unit can generate water is by condensing moisture from the air. This is common to all air conditioning and removes humidity from your home. If so, this water, called condensate, must drain. The condensate is collected at the AC cooling coil that is typically located on top of a vertical upflow furnace or downstream of a horizontal furnace. If the drain is clogged, it will overflow and create a mess in and around the furnace. If this is your problem, cleaning and clearing debris may solve the issue. I suggest starting with the easiest accessable part of the drain path. You may need to open the panels enclosing the AC coil and clean the small pans at the bottom of the coil and clear openings from above that look similar to a laundry tub drain. If you get that far and find rust holes in the pan, repairs are needed. If you have an electric condensate pump that may also be the cuprit and require cleaning. Check and clear all drain lines from the coil connection to the final dicharge - sump pit or outside.

Sunbeam air conditioner


It is normal for water to collect in the lower base of an air conditioner. See the section entitled: "There is water sloshing around inside." If water leaks out the front it is usually because the unit is tilted forward in the window frame. All air conditioners should be installed so they tilt slightly back to allow for proper removal of the condensation collected.
