    The condensation lines shouldn't be dripping on the floor, and wrapping the ducts will only collect the water and destroy the insulation. Call for a service today, and we can help get that taken care of for you. 800-840-3346.

    There are a number of different issues that could lead to excess condensation build up. You might have bacteria that is clogging up the drain, or the line might become dislodged. These issues could cause your condensation pan to overfill and spill water into your home. It is also possible that this condensation pan can become damaged or rusted and start leaking, which can also allow water to fall into your home.

    If your condensate pump is broken, then the water that is building up is no longer being pumped outside of your home. While this is only a problem for people who have their AC units in the basement, it can still affect a lot of homes. Water build up in your house can lead to lots of problems, so you need to make sure that you either repair or replace the pump.

    A dirty air filter can block the airflow over the evaporator coil, and when this happens, the coil can get too cold and freeze. As the frozen coil melts, it drips water into the evaporation pan and can cause it to overflow. You need to make sure you check your air filter periodically.

    When your system is low on refrigerant, the pressure in the AC system will also drop and cause the evaporator coil to freeze over, which can lead to the same problem with overflowing. You may notice that your refrigerant is low when the air conditioner stops cooling well or it starts making a hissing or bubbling noise, which signals a leak.

    What kind of ac is it?? Assuming a window model - it could be the tilt is wrong - adjust the brackets. If its a through the wall model, something could be clogged ( the holes where the water comes out ) ... I only suggest these because thats what happened to me..

    Hope its something simple!!
