Split System Air conditioner
There normally two types of leakages from the wall unit.
1.The warm air in the room when comes in contact with the cooling coil of heat exchanger (consisting of fine fins where compressed refrigerant evaporates) looses its heat & cannot retain the same moisture content at lower temperature at the point of contact with evaporator. There is a provision of a drain pipe to carry this condensed water to outside water drain. So if the drain pipe is choked or the coupling joint of the drain pipe at the bottom of cooling coil is not proper, there will be water leakage, This can be easily attended by physically looking at the fittings.
2.The second problem can be the leakage of the refrigerant. If there is second type of problem, then there will be very little or no cooling irrespective of continuous running of air conditioner. This can be easily checked by feeling the temperature of outlet air from the air conditioner.
Conclusion-As you have written that there is leakage from the air conditioner, but you have not written whether it is visible or invisible. If the leakage is visible, it is problem number 1 & if it is invisible, it is problem number 2.
If you are not satisfied you are free to ask for more explanations.
