Water under outside central air unit...problem or not?

by Laura

I have water under my central air unit outside. It is not a lot of water just enough to wet the concrete pad the unit sets on. Is this normal or something I should have looked at?

WATER UNDER CONDENSING UNIT
by: Anonymous

I would suggest having a tech come out and check the system for correct charging. Could be that there is liquid refrigerent returning to the compressor causing it to become very cold, and thus condensing water from the the ambient air outside. A good example is a cold drink when taken outside and begins to sweat. Hope this helps out

Package or Condenser?
by: Dadan

Hey, Gertie

Here is picture of a condenser unit. You mean water coming out from this unit? Or the water is coming out from package unit.

help!!

I have the same problem with water under the outside central air. It is happens when the ac is running. the drain is not clogged but there is no water coming out of the drain pipe instead it is going underneath the unit.

Does anybody know what the problem might be? is this a major issue? i am worried about that the unit might rust underneath.

I have the same problem and it is not normal, but I have no idea what is causing it. I will contact my AC repairman. May be low on freon.

Water under condensing unit
by: HVAC Tech (Retired)

I used to service a unit that had a little water underneath and around the condensing unit. On inspection I found the evaporator condensate drain came out of the house under the outside unit.
