Why Is My Heat Pump Leaking Water?

Why Is My Heat Pump Leaking Water? - Western Heating and Air

Your heat pump should not leak water. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. If this is happening, it could be caused by something problematic. The Western Heating & Air team discusses what these problems might be if your heat pump is indeed leaking or dripping water.

Causes of Heat Pump Leaks

Refrigerant Insulation

If the refrigerant in your heat pump is lacking insulation or has a tear in its insulation, water could be dripping out and onto the surrounding area. Make sure to check your insulation on your unit to ensure it’s properly secured and doing its job.

Dirty Evaporator Coils

If the coils used within your unit are dirty, this can cause water to leak. That is because water is supposed to slide down the coils and into a drainage area. However, if the coil is dirty, the dirt traps the water from sliding down the drain, but instead the trapped water eventually just drips down the coil to the ground.

Coils Are Iced Over

The coils in place within your heat pump unit are not supposed to ice up. But due to malfunction, sometimes they will. This ice can melt and turn into condensation. If this is the issue, you may need a professional to assess what’s wrong with your unit.
