Is There Water Running From My AC?
That Terrible Dripping Sound
There are many pleasant sounds a person can hear in their house, such as a child’s laughter. The sound of dripping water, however, is not one of those pleasant noises, especially when it is coming from the air conditioner. At Jupiter-Tequesta, we understand the stress this sound elicits, especially if you can’t see any signs of water.
The Common Issue
Dripping sounds are often the byproduct of condensation going into the drip pan beneath the AC unit. This process is standard for an air conditioner, as the unit will capture the humidity from the air. This humidity will be liquefied and transferred into the drip pan that is stationed beneath it. Naturally, we understand the average person doesn’t want to hear any wet acoustic noises. Thankfully, there is a DIY solution we can recommend: empty the pan. Most often, this step will fix the problem.
The Advanced Issue
If the noise being heard sounds like running water, then it is likely the draining plan isn’t disposing of the excess condensation properly. Upon spotting physical water leaking from the unit itself, you should seek the help of a professional HVAC technician. A professional will be able to locate the problem and repair it for you. This will fix your AC and the annoying noise you’ve been hearing!
