Why is my HVAC unit leaking water?

Possible reasons why your HVAC unit is leaking water:

The number one reason units leak water is that there is a blockage in the drain line. The drain line is the white PVC pipe set up in front of the system that carries condensation from the evaporator drain pan. Over time dirt and dust pass through the air filter and gets washed down from the evaporator coil making its way into the drain line. The buildup of dirt and dust clogs the drain line causing leaks to occur. To prevent the clogging, the drain lines should be cleaned regularly.
