Is it normal air conditioning condenser outdoor unit having water leaking?
If yes, what is the reason? What can we do to stop the water dripping?
Yes. It is not water leaking per se. It has to do with condensation building up at the evaporated coil related to the ambient temperature especially very hot days. That is the environment air temperature contrast the heat at that the outside unit produces. It is the same reason why you see water leaking from a car after a drive with the A/C on near the firewall in front of the passenger seating area.
Small amounts of condensation near the drain pipe is normal and a common effect of an air conditioner working hard—particularly on extremely hot or humid days. Likewise, if a small puddle is found underneath your air conditioner’s condenser unit, this is most likely a result of your unit’s normal operation.
Under normal operation, your air conditioner should only leak or produce condensation while operating. Then, the small puddle of water should dry up on a hot day.
A telltale sign you could be in need of air conditioner repair is if the water leak persists for a day or more. If it does, you’ll need the help of a professional air conditioning contractor.
