Water dripping from your air vents isn’t normal and is a problem that needs to be fixed right away. While some of these issues are minor, others can be severe and require professional help. Here are a few things that could cause water to drip from air vents at your home in Tulare, CA.

Low Refrigerant

Low refrigerant can occur as a result of leaks or undercharging. This problem can cause your air vents to leak water, just like the air filters. Professional maintenance may be necessary to diagnose and fix the issue.

Clogged Condensate Line

Over time, your condensate line will become clogged with dirt, algae, dust and debris. This is particularly true because it is outside the house. Too much dirt can cause accumulation of condensation in the air vents and cause water to drip from the air vents.

Air Leaks

Air leaks around the AC vents can cause condensation to develop and drip from your AC vents. Air should pass through the supply gates rather than escape around the vents.

You should check your air vents to see if there is any air escaping. Better still, call a professional to diagnose and fix the issue.

Trying to troubleshoot or diagnose HVAC issues on your own can be a risky proposition. Without the proper knowledge and training, you could end up causing additional damage to your equipment or void any warranty coverage you might have.
