Water Running Noise In My Air Conditioner

comfort authority HVAC unit

Most of the year here in the beautiful Tampa Bay area the weather tends to be on the warmer side. We rely heavily on our air conditioning units to keep our homes cool and comfortable. When we notice any out of the ordinary noises coming from our HVAC system we tend to panic. Will our house or business unexpectedly lose climate control?

The Comfort Authority understands about your anxiety and can assess your unit if it is making noises like the sound of water dripping. Your home AC received warm air from inside your home and blows it over an evaporator coil which contains refrigerant. As the liquid absorbs the heat and condensation occurs the water collected runs down into the drain pan. This moisture then flows into the condensation line and drains outside your home if running properly.

There should be no dripping noises or running water noises if your unit is functioning properly.

The most common reasons your unit would be making a dripping noise include:

  • A clogged condensate drain line
  • Improper installation of HVAC system
  • Size of the unit
  • A broken condensate pump
  • A cracked drain pan
  • A dirty/clogged air filter
  • Unit needs refrigerant

We are available 24/7 for all your air conditioning needs at¬†(813)575-6996. Don’t wait until a repair can turn into a total unit replacement! Call us today and ask about our monthly promotions and specials.
