Air conditioner is flooding the house

My a/c is leaking non stop and the landlord has not helped so i need a fix that i might be able to do. there is no drain outside unless i just have not found it and the electric bill is over 500 dollars a month! The house is flooding and i cant dry it up fast enough. The system is very old and not set on a low temp it stays at about 78 and for some reason will never stop running. We cleaned coils and that did not help us. What can we do to stop the water and lower the bill?

System freeze up and water melting is a primary result of low charge. funny how being low on charge causes freeze up. youd think just the opposite. be assured there is a drain. 90 percent of the time its a pvc or black piece of tubing that exits with the refrigerant lines at the outdoor condensor. look for damp soil or gently dig down with a garden hand tool till you trace ref lines back into the foundation of the house. you will have a little 3/ 8 line for hp liquid, a little 3/8 stat wire and a 3/4" insulated line for suction line. and then a plastic or pvc drain. hook up a good shop vac to the line and suc it out. you should be able to hear good sucking sound inside at the dont mention seeing any ice and if its freezing up ice would form on the suction line eventually all the way back to the compressor? run it 15 minutes feel the suction line . should be cold and sweating like a glass of cold iced beverage. little line should be warm 10 15 degrees warmer than outside temp. is blower wheel clean? i have seen lots of clean coils but if wheel is plugged up air volume is diminished. clean the wheel .you know you really should call a good ac man. call your local ac distributor and ask them who is good , honest, and not out to gouge the consumer. they will tell you.., kind of like being in a strange town and needing surgery, you ask the nurse who would you get to operate on you!

You need to check your contract. Most of the time, landlords perform repairs or make arrangements with the tenant to repair and reimburse.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...

The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

We recently had a flood go through the house and now when we turn the air conditioner on it displays c5 what does this mean?

C5 Indoor malfunction of gas pipe thermistor. Check amps of your unit .If very less than specified, it's gas leak. If only little difference and having freezing blow, it's coil and blower wheel dust blocked. Service the unit completely and run the unit.
If gas leak call repairman to find leak and arrest and then recharge gas.
Hope it's helpful. Thanks,.

Water is leaking inside the house

The drain that should be carrying the condensate water outside is stopped up. Compressed air works well to clear the drain.

Can u plz tell me what wrong with my air

Mary it sounds like you just need to take another look at the drain hose and where it connects in the unit. Also make sure the hose isn't kinked or stopped up. If there is a pan inside that catches water make sure the hose is lower than the pan. Hope this helps.

Motor cycles on and off. It is a roof top unit don't know how old. this is a rental house with an absent landlord. don't want to and cant spen much money on fixing but don't want to burn it up.

Is this on and off cycle rapid and irregular? If so it may be loose control wiring or a bad thermostat.

If the Cycle is not rapid it may simply be trying to satisfy a heavy heat load.
