AC condensation/drip pan

I asked this question earlier, but it didn't seem to post. We have two AC units; one in the attic has a great deal of condensation under it, and the other does not. Why the difference? We've also discovered that a new unit (less than three years old) put in by the previous owner doesn't have a drip pan under it. Would an AC installer "forget" the drip pan on a unit over a bedroom? Also, is it normal for the line to clog and have to be blown out. I've had this done twice in two weeks - the water went through the ceiling.

sounds like a need for a good look at that drain, adjust it for maximum fall, usually 3/4 pvc...available anywhere. if there is a coil in the attic it is code everywhere i have worked for there to be an emergency drain pan in a secondary position to the main drain pan. if the emergency drain pan does not have a drain, a float switch is installed in the pan to prevent flooding. stay cool
