Your HVAC unit is something that should be maintained in order to prevent costly repairs. Any leaking or pooling water around an indoor AC unit should be attended to right away. As soon as you discover a leak, be sure to turn off your air conditioner. This can help prevent the water from causing damage to the electrical components of your air conditioner and limit the amount of water damage to your home.

“Why is My Home Air Conditioner Leaking Water Inside?”

Why Is My Heat Pump Leaking Water?

Heat pumps extract heat from one area and move it to another. In cooling mode, they take heat from the indoors and move it outdoors, cooling the air in the home. When in heating mode, heat energy is pulled from the outdoor air and exhausted into the home.

In the cooling mode, the indoor evaporator coil and the suction line (the large copper refrigerant line in black insulation) sweats. That is part of the purpose of the black insulation (armaflex), to keep the condensation from dripping. Sometimes if the insulation is missing or if it has open seems, it can cause dripping and obviously this is an easy fix. All armaflex joints should be butted-up tight and well taped.
