Air conditioners can develop leaks. Refrigerant leaks are, in fact, among the most serious of all problems that you may encounter with your home cooling system. However, air conditioners do not really leak water — at least not in the way that you may be thinking. After all, evaporative coolers aside, air conditioning systems don’t actually use water in their operation. They don’t have a water line supplying water to the cabinet. So why is there water surrounding your air conditioning system?
The good news is that you are not imagining the problem. There very well could be water surrounding your air conditioner in Bolingbrook, IL, and the AC cabinet could well be the source of that water. So where does this water come from, if you’re not really dealing with a water leak in the AC? That is exactly what we’re here to explore today. Read on, and remember that we are here to resolve any air conditioning problems that you may encounter.
