Re: my window air is leaking on the inside of my house
Usually because the drain hole/duct/tube, on the outside is blocked, or the aircon is mounted leaning Into the house, condesate that is supposed to drip into the outer casing and run out the hole is funneled over the lowest point of the casing, the house side.
check and unblock the drain,
and ensure the aircon is mounted tilted back.

Hello, the unit must be tilted back in the window to prevent the condensate from leaking inside. Some units will have a drain plug on the bottum, while others use the condenser fan to scoop up the condensate and splash the condenser to keep it cooler and evaporate the condensate.
What is leaking? If it is water, you need to find the drain pipe leading from the inside unit to the outside of the house, and open up the obstruction in it. You could push a wire up through it, or send some compressed air up it. The drain pipe is probably near the ground next to the foundation or in the ceiling of an outside porch. If this is a window unit leaking water you need to clean the obstruction out of the drain pipe or hole on the outside of the window, probably at the bottom outside rear of the unit. I wasn't sure from your question if it is leaking water, or leaking refrigerant gas. If it's the gas you probably need to call an A/C repair service. good luck, genetuck
mcdevito75 Here, all A/C units leak water, if your unit is a window unit you"ll have to re-tilt the unit so that it is leaning more toward outside the window and not toward the inside. Contact an A/C shop in your area they come to the house.
The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole.
