Air Conditioners Water Dripping Inside Room

As warm moist (humid) air from the room passes over the cold indoor coil, water condenses on the cold indoor coil and collects in the base pan where it flows to the rear of the unit. It is normal to see water dripping on the outdoor side of the unit. For more information, see Air Conditioners Water Dripping Outside.

If water is dripping inside of the room:

  • The unit may be installed so that it is tilted slightly into the room. It should be level or tilted slightly to the outside (about 1/4") so that any excess water will drip outside rather than leak into the room.
  • Dirty filters can cause moisture to collect and drip on the floor.
