water drip

The water is caused by the cold air in the duct meeting the humid air surrounding the duct. Insulate around the duct as much as possible using foil faced, fiberglass duct wrap. This presumes the duct to be metal.

Water drips

If your A/C is roof mounted, water could be coming in around where the equipment is attached to the roof. Another possibility is a clogged drain or rusted out drain pan.
