A/c water in vents


My vents are under my house and blow up threough the
floor, Today as i was cleaning them I noticed that there was water collected in the bottom of two of my vents ; also the floor and the walls, of the space, in which my blower and system are housed is damp.

I have already cleaned out the outside drain pipe and removed all water and other deposits in the drain pan. So my question is what do I do now in order to further diagnose the problem. How should I clean any current, and possible damage.

Hi Stacey:

Here are some thing to check into:

1. is the cooling coil dirty so that the water is dripping off the coil and not flowing into the drain pan?

2. has the drain pan rusted thru?

3. is the furnace level, not tilted. Ditto for the cooling coil.

4. is there a trap in the drain line?

5. is there water in the duct below the furnace?

6. is the cabinet of the furnace of the section where the cooling coil is lacated sweating?

7. are the ducts in the basement or outside? What's the condition of the insulation?

8. If you have an A shaped coil, does the water flow from the side where the drain outlet isn't over to the drain outlet side?

Check these items out and let us know what you find.
