Question about Heating & Cooling
A/c is leaking a lot of water into room. Unit recently installed and has been running good for several weeks.
Unit must be tilted slightly down in back to drain condensate outside.

Hi, If this is a new unit I would check the filter first and make sure it is clean. Also check and make sure it is slightly tilted to the outside. If its an older unit it probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem.
